Increased demand for factory automation solutions prompts company to relocate within Charlotte to new, build-to-suit property.

Artist rendering of new, build-to-suit, leased property proposed for Bosch Rexroth operations in Charlotte offers increased footprint of 25% and more space for expansion in the future.

 

  • •Realizes Factory of the Future vision for its own manufacturing operations
  • •Renews commitment to the Charlotte Metro Area
  • •Scheduled to break ground in Mid-2023; completion by Summer 2024

 

Bosch Rexroth is planning to expand its operations and will move its linear and assembly technology manufacturing facility to a new location in Charlotte, the company announced recently.

The company has held operations in Charlotte, NC for over 30 years, with the past 26 years at its current location in Steele Creek.

Since experiencing significant growth in its factory automation business, Bosch Rexroth has outgrown its present location and has opted to lease and outfit a new, build-to-suit location at 409 Tyvola Rd in Charlotte, NC. This facility will be developed and owned by Charlotte-based, SunCap Property Group, with Bosch Rexroth entering into a long-term lease with SunCap as landlord.

“We are excited to experience the growth that necessitates this move, and we are proud to remain within Charlotte,” remarked President and CEO, Greg Gumbs.

The new facility will be the ideal representation of what it truly means to be a factory of the future. As part of its factory automation portfolio, Bosch Rexroth provides solutions that ensure the efficiency of manufacturers regardless of industry. The operations in Charlotte are specifically dedicated to custom assembly and linear motion technology solutions that are tailored to meet their customer’s variable needs.

“We are eager to grow our capabilities and reaffirm our commitment to the success of our distribution and end customers in North America,” added Geert van der Zalm, vice president of sales for factory automation in North America. “It is not often that a company gets to build its factory environment from scratch, and we are in the unique position to do just that, while creating a showcase environment of what a factory of the future can be today.”

The new facility will boast a total footprint of 227,500 square feet, expanding Bosch Rexroth’s current manufacturing footprint by over 25% with additional room for future expansion, as needed. Within the new space, approximately 200,000 square feet is dedicated to lean manufacturing and logistics, providing enough room to optimize flexible manufacturing for changing demands. The remaining 27,500 square feet of space will be dedicated to a customer showroom and innovation center, training facilities, collaboration space, office space, and a flexible galleria that can be used for co-working space, dining, townhall meetings and other activities. Outside, there will be areas developed for walking paths and spaces to sit and connect with nature.

Michael Schmitt, senior vice president of technical and engineering in North America expressed his passion for the new development saying, “The new building will provide plenty of space for research and development that inspires our associates and brings forward innovations that will help shape the future of manufacturing automation. It is truly an exciting time to be in this market!”
