Bosch Security Systems to open distribution center
Bosch Security Systems, a leading global supplier of security, safety and communications products, solutions and services, plans to open a new distribution center in the City of Greer. The company expects to create more than 50 new jobs over the next five years.
Bosch associates at the 150,000-square-foot facility, located at 140 Caliber Ridge Road in Greer, will distribute products to customers in North and South America and support light assembly for customer-specific projects.
"It is my great pleasure to welcome Bosch to the City of Greer. With Bosch's announcement, Greer has truly been given a coveted opportunity to further grow and diversify our city," Mayor Rick Danner said. "As one of South Carolina's fastest-growing cities, Greer is extremely grateful to Bosch for their commitment, and we look forward to the opportunity to provide a return on their investment."
Bosch Security Systems' product portfolio includes video surveillance, intrusion detection, fire detection, access control and management systems, in addition to professional audio and conference systems. Operations are expected to begin in December 2014.
"We are pleased to open the first facility for Bosch Security Systems in South Carolina. With this investment, we will benefit from synergies with multiple Bosch facilities and transportation lanes in the state," said Christopher Gerace, regional president for Bosch Security Systems. "We will meet the growing demands of our customers in North and South America with greater flexibility and efficiency."
The company employs more than 12,000 associates worldwide. The company is one of 360 subsidiaries and regional companies of the Bosch Group, a leading global supplier of technology and services that employs more than 4,000 associates among four facilities throughout South Carolina. The company will begin hiring for the new positions in fall 2014.
