Bosch USA to add 1,000 employees as auto business grows

New jobs for US car industry….my prediction: for every job added in the US there will be (roughly) 50 jobs added in Asia….

German auto supplier Bosch said today that it plans to add about 1,000 employees in North America this year as its automotive business continues to grow.

The auto supplier, whose headquarters for North and South America is in Farmington Hills, expects to employ about 23,000 in North America by the end of this year.

Last year, Bosch's North American workforce increased 8% to 22,000 as the company recovered from the Great Recession, said Peter Marks, Bosch’s chairman, president and CEO for Bosch’s North and South American operations.
