SC hydraulic plant will add 50 jobs in expansion

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (AP) - A hydraulic plant in South Carolina is adding 50 jobs in an expansion.

Bosch Rexroth is moving some of its operations from Texas to Fountain Inn. The company plans to spend about $10 million in the expansion.

The Fountain Inn plant makes industrial hydraulic piston units and pumps. The expansion will add hydraulic motors used in oil drilling, transportation and other industries.

Bosch Group spokeswoman Beck MacDonald says hiring should begin later this year.
