Bosch Rexroth Melds Buchanan Unit Into St. Joe Bosch Facility

Recognizing that leasing space in one town when you have excess capacity in another nearby, the team at Bosch has consolidated operations into a single center on Red Arrow Highway in St. Joseph, eliminating the need for their Assembly Technology Service Center building in Buchanan.

That Assembly Technology service center, previously in leased space in Buchanan, is now located in the Bosch Group facility on Red Arrow Highway at Maiden Lane in St. Joseph.

Last month Bosch Rexroth completed the move to 3737 Red Arrow Highway a short run from the I-94 interchange at Stevensville. That places the Assembly Technology Service Center conveniently within four hours of 62-percent of Rexroth’s installed conveyor customer base.

Company officials say that Rexroth’s Applications, Service, Engineering and Product management experts are now in the same location, as well, allowing them to collaborate more closely with customers and to respond quickly to customer needs.

According to Bosch Group leaders, the fully equipped technology and service center is fully operational, offering on-site service for the company’s TS Assembly Conveyors, VarioFlow plus and heavy-duty conveyor gearboxes. With the new location, customers are able to test their applications close by directly at the facility.

It was a logical choice, with a 3,200 square-foot lab area and 1,700 square feet of office space, giving Rexroth’s Assembly Technologies business the room needed to host on-site customer training and to expand the conveyor system build areas as customer needs arise.

As a center of excellence for the company’s assembly technologies, the facility offers technical and product support, and is equipped with resources for on-site assembly and installation assistance, preventive maintenance and Rexroth’s popular conveyor “tune-up” service. Additionally, the technology center continues to provide state-of-the-art field service and repairs, end-user installation and maintenance training while providing expert support to customers for the care of Rexroth’s assembly conveyor product offerings.

In addition to St. Joseph, Bosch Rexroth also has technology-specific service centers located in the following communities:

  • Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
  • Fountain Inn, South Carolina
  • Hoffman Estates, Illinois
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Houston, Texas
  • Dallas, Texas.

Rexroth’s headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina also act as the service center for linear motion technology. As before, customers needing service can call Rexroth’s service hotline at 800-Rexroth (739-7684) to be directed to the appropriate service center location or to locate a nearby distributor.
