The U.S. oil and gas giant is announcing Tuesday that it will add more work-life balance jobs to its South Dakota facility, where it currently employs nearly 1,500 workers.
The company will hire 5,000 more full- and part-time workers over the next five years and hire more than 6,000 employees over the same period, the company said in a statement.
The South Dakota unit of Bosch Co. currently employs more than 7,500 people, and the company plans to expand its presence there in the coming years.
The plant in Bismarck, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of Sioux Falls, employs 1,100 people.
The news follows reports that Bosch was considering closing the South Dakota plants in 2019 after the state imposed a new energy tax to combat climate change.
The new jobs are expected to create between 700 and 800 jobs at the South, which employs more miners than any other state in the nation.
The announcement comes amid a broader push by U.A.E. countries to attract and retain workers from the North as global oil prices slump.
