Paul Bippus GmbH, a Germany-based manufacturer of precision parts, is launching new production operations to supply Robert Bosch LLC in Dorchester County, South Carolina. The company’s $16.1-million investment is projected to create 45 new jobs.

“Bippus is thrilled to land our first U.S. plant in Dorchester County,” says Paul Bippus, GmbH President Bastian Bippus. “We are a family-owned operation that values a welcoming community that will enable us to continue our success and help us grow our first American operation. The county and the Charleston region offer significant advantages for locating here, allowing us to capitalize on our supplier partnership with Bosch LLC.”
