Bosch Announces Expansion of Research, Tech Center
April 24, 2017—Robert Bosch LLC will relocate its Palo-Alto based Research and Technology Center to add to a new 104,000-square-foot, single-tenant office in Sunnydale, Calif., by the end of 2017. The move consolidates associates from three suites in Palo Alto into one workspace, aimed at inspiring collaboration and innovation.
The Sunnydale office, which represents a $40 million commitment over a 10-year lease, will relocate roughly 300 Bosch associates and interns currently working in Palo Alto.
“The move to Sunnyvale is reflective of Bosch’s ongoing commitment to innovation and continuous improvement,” said Mike Mansuetti, president, Robert Bosch LLC. “Not only is the new location larger and better suited for collaboration, it will also better position our associates to interact with the large, vibrant ecosystem of universities, research institutes, technology companies and startups that are key to our success in Silicon Valley.”
The new space is a four floor, single tenant building, and consists of research labs, workshops, garage space, meeting rooms and administrative workspace.
