In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in Stuttgart. This was the birth of today’s globally operating company. Right from the start, it was characterized by innovative strength and social commitment. In this article, Hai Hung would like to introduce Bosch to customers with an overview angle:
Bosch is a global service and manufacturing group with many subsidiaries, branches and overseas representatives. The group's operations focus on three strategic business areas: consumer goods, construction/ industrial engineering and auto-engineering.
Consumer goods and construction engineering include electrical appliances and accessories, garden tools, Bosch heat technology and interior equipment. Furniture products are the business link between Bosch and Siemens which earned 9.5 million USD in 2004. Auto-engineering is the largest business and accounted for 25.3 million USD of sales in 2005. This area consists of six divisions for the development and manufacture of auto-industry equipment and a separate division responsible for the product sale.
After the purchase of Buderus AG group in 2004, the industrial engineering business was split into automation, railway, packagingengineerings and this field’s sales reached 5.2 million USD in 2004. The total revenue of the group in 2004 was 40 million USD.
ACHIEVEMENTS OF BOSCH BRAND:
Bosch is the world's leading brand in its market. It is one of the largest independent manufacturers of auto parts and systems. In 2003, Bosch alone registered 2,750 patents itself for new inventions, mostly in auto mechanical engineering, which proved that Bosch was a pioneer in the field.
Bosch is also one of the leading manufacturers of electrical tools and accessories. Bosch's subsidiary in the UK, Worcester Heat System, is the market leader forBSH combined product using gas and oil(jointly owned by Bosch and Siemens) and is one of the world's leading manufacturers of home appliances.
Bosch is also one of the world's leading suppliers of packaging technology, with customers in the food, confectionery, pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic industries. In 2004, the acquisition of SIG Pack International system has increased the group's strong competitive edge in packaging technology. Bosch also leads the market in capsule packaging, where the process consists of stuffing round pills as well as different pills into capsules.
Bosch's research and development funds are very large - accounting for 7% of sales - ensuring that the Group maintains its leading edge in innovation. In 2004, Bosch's sales reached nearly 40 million USD and the group spent 2.7 million USD on research and development.
In the UK, Bosch has more than 4,000 employees with annual sales of over 1.8 million USD.
THE HISTORY OF BOSCH:
In 1886, ROBERT BOSCH opened a workshop on precision mechanics and electrical engineering in Stuttgart. In the following year, Bosch developed a low-voltage "magneto" ignition system used in gas engines. This system was used in internal combustion engines for fixed machinery of the inventor Gottlieb Daimler. In 1898, this was the first system to be used in automobiles, an event that marked Bosch's first development in the automation industry. Also in 1898, Bosch opened its first overseas branch in England. Nine years later, the Bosch Magneto Company Limited was founded on Oxford Street in London. Shortly after, production began in the UK.
This event established the foundation for Bosch's long-term business strategies in the UK and formed Bosch's position as one of the largest European investors, as well as an important producer and exporter in the UK. Bosch's main office is located in Denham, Buckinghamshire and holds a majority of sales and distribution activities in the UK. Other headquarters are located in St Neots, Worcestor, Stowmarket and Milton Keynes.
At the factory in Miskin of South Wales, Bosch Group produced a high quality alternator and invested 240 million US dollars since the factory's operation in 1991. And in 2003, a new investment of 115 million US dollars was made to build a new alternator with LI-X technology. More than 4.2 million alternators are produced each year, and more than 80% of the factory's output is exported to automated machinery manufacturers around the world.

The history of Bosch Group is the history of innovation and renewal. During the early part of the 20th century, Bosch continued promoting its business through the development of new products. In 1927, the diesel injection pump in cars was introduced and in 1928, the first electric appliance - an electric hair trimmer called Forfex, was marketed.
In the following year, Blaupunkt, a subsidiary of Bosch, launched its first in-carstereo in the world. This was the foundation for Blaupunkt's growth in the direction of leading the market ofin-car safety navigation and entertainment.
In 1933, Bosch began producing household appliances by launching a household refrigerator. In 1958, Bosch introduced his first washing machine, followed by a dishwasher in 1964.
Bosch Group always has a sense of awareness and social responsibility. The "Red Bosch" Foundation has been known for its concerns about social security.And Robert Bosch already set up an eight-hour working day before this law came into force. The Robert Bosch Foundation was established in 1964 and is now one of the largest organizations in Germany. The regulations of this organization are based on Robert Bosch's final wishes and testament, stating that company property must be used for the benefit of the community. This organization owns approximately 92% of Bosch's equity. By the end of 2003, this organization had used 630 million US dollars for charity purposes, primarily in the fields of public health, social work, international assistance, education, arts and culture, humanitarian activities as well as natural and social sciences.
During the 1970s, the company continued to innovate and in 1974, the maintenance -free ignition system in car was put into production. Following was the launch of the world's first jointed arm robot in 1976. The "SCARA" robot is known to be able to perform many functions from simple picking and placing moves to the most complicated assembly processes.
In 1978, Bosch introduced the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), and now it has become a standard component, allowing the driver to drive in strong brake.
Bosch’s Anti-Slip Regulation system (ASR) was introduced in 1987. This system prevented the wheels from rotating at the beginning of the movement and during the acceleration on slippery roads. Since 2000, Bosch has increased its reputation in this area with the Adaptive Cruise (ACC) system, with the help of a radar detector that helps identify and calculate the speed of moving vehicles in front and maintain a moderate pace by acting on the brakes and motors. Ten million ESP brake systems have been sold since its introduction in 1995. Bosch is aiming to produce a "sensational car" with passive safety system which helps warn driver about possible dangerous situations.
Bosch's high-pressure fuel pump system helped the diesel engines to operate more efficiently, quieter and cleaner. In 2003 the mass production of the third-generation Common-Rail devices, using piezo inline, helped Bosch claim the position of a technology leader in the field.
Blaupunkt, a multimedia car supplier, launched the Travelpilot E1 system, a cost-effective flight route navigation system. Blaupunkt was also the first manufacturer to create a digital radio with MP3 used in cars. In 2003, Bosch was the first manufacturer to introduce lithium-ion technology for wireless electric tools.
Currently, the Bosch Group is one of the largest industrial groups in Germany. This group has many branches and joint ventures in 50 countries, with more than 193 manufacturing plants, 37 global business cooperation projects globally and more than 232,000 employees around the world.
