“The investment Bosch Rexroth is making in Fountain Inn, SC is a significant one. Their strategy is to support their world markets locally and this investment will allow the Fountain Inn facility to become the largest hydraulic manufacturing campus in the U.S. today,” said Tim Gillig, Vice President of Sales, Livingston & Haven. “Hav-ing this capability in our backyard gives Livingston & Haven a huge advantage in the marketplace and will result in better support for our local customers. Bosch Rexroth is the world leader when it comes to axial and bent axis piston products and we are honored to be the recipient of the first hydraulic pump out of their new facility.”
The new facility will provide the much needed extra pump capacity for the North American market.
