The company was awarded as a “Top Workplace”

In the Lehigh Valley, which also includes the Bosch Rexroth Plant in Bethlehem, the largest newspaper "The Morning Call" sponsors an annual ‘Top Workplace’ survey where employees can evaluate their companies. At the end of February, the prices for the best businesses were awarded at a ceremony - and Bosch Rexroth won twice.

Bethlehem. Last year, about 320 employees of Bosch Rexroth in Bethlehem participated in the survey to evaluate their workplace. During a festive banquet in February, the newspaper gave a prize for the third place in the category "Large employer" to Bosch Rexroth. Since the first two places were granted to non-profit organizations, Bosch Rexroth was indirectly the winner in the category of industrial engineering and manufacturing. In addition, the Commercial Plant Manager Andreas Torell and Technical Plant Manager Manfred Hahn received the award for Workplace Ethics. They were very pleased as the jury consisted entirely of the firm’s own employees. They thanked them for the confidence and the great cooperation.
