Drive and control manufacturer Bosch Rexroth is celebrating 50 years of continuous operation in the United States. Starting with a small office in Easton, Pennsylvania in 1967 and a handful of employees, Rexroth grew over seven years into a newly-built hydraulics manufacturing facility at its current headquarters in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The company produced a video about its history:

As Rexroth expanded globally, so did the company’s U.S. operations. It eventually identified itself as “The Drive & Control Company,” offering a range of technologies for driving and controlling motion in large and small applications. Technologies have included electric drives and controls, mobile and industrial hydraulics, linear motion technologies, and pneumatics.

The company’s 2001 acquisition by Robert Bosch GmbH resulted in the name change to Bosch Rexroth. The acquisition expanded the product offering to include assembly technologies like conveyors, tightening systems and aluminum structural framing.

Today, the company operates worldwide in more than 80 countries, and its U.S. presence has expanded to multiple manufacturing, customizing and service facilities throughout the country.
