South Bend to lose 250 jobs with Bosch closing

November 16, 2010

An auto parts maker says it will close its South Bend facilities by the end of 2011 and will offer about 170 of the 250 employees who work there jobs elsewhere.

The South Bend Tribune says Robert Bosch Corp. announced Tuesday that it will offer about 20 employees in the truck braking division positions in nearby St. Joseph, Mich.

Sixty other workers from the braking division and 30 from the corporate office will be offered jobs at corporate headquarters in Farmington Hills, Mich. Sixty employees in the information technology group will be offered jobs either in Farmington Hills or Mount Prospect, Ill., near Chicago.

The move follows Bosch's decision a year ago to sell off its foundation braking business to Tokyo-based Akebono Brake Industries Co.
