FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 10/31/2013
PENDLETON --- Robert Bosch Corporation President Mike Mansuetti will be in the Upstate next week to deliver the keynote speech at Tri-County Technical College's November 5 Annual Report luncheon.
The luncheon, held at the College's Pendleton Campus beginning at 11:30 a.m., annually attracts approximately 250 community, business, industrial, government and political leaders from Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties.
Mr. Mansuetti was Senior Vice President, Technical Plant Manager, at Bosch's Anderson facility. Beginning in 2009, Mr. Mansuetti served as Senior Vice President of the Fuel Injection Business Unit in the Gasoline Systems Division in Schwieberdigen, Germany.
He became president of Robert Bosch LLC, effective July 1, 2012. In this position, he works closely with the business units and sales organizations to guide the regional growth strategy with a focus on cross-divisional business opportunities and new business areas.
Since joining Bosch in 1988, he has held a variety of positions with increasing responsibility in engineering, manufacturing, and management in the U.S. and Germany. He earned a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University.
Since 1988, the Robert Bosch Corporation in Anderson has partnered with the College in a variety of ways, all devoted to enhancing educational opportunities.
The company completed a $30,000 pledge to support the Robert Bosch Corporation Technology Endowment. This generous donation, along with previous gifts, qualified the company for recognition on the College's Wall of Honor. The Wall is reserved for individuals, companies, and foundations who have contributed $50,000 or more cumulatively to the College.
This year the company implemented a Scholars Program with our evening students in their last semester. The program helps students to adapt to the workplace more quickly by getting hands-on experience in various areas of the manufacturing process. Scholars work 40 hours a week, in addition to their coursework at Tri-County. They are full-time Bosch associates when they begin their training, which includes more than 300 hours of mentor training and 200 hours of classroom/lab training. After completing the four-month program and graduating from Tri-County, they are assigned to a production department at Bosch as an entry-level technician.
