Bosch prepares to celebrate 125 years of Bosch later this year
By Alyssa Dalton
June 06, 2011 – The Bosch Group is celebrating two major milestones this year–its 125th anniversary, as well as the 150th anniversary of its founder’s birth. On Nov. 15, 1886, Robert Bosch established his “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in Stuttgart, Germany, laying the foundation for what has become a global supplier of technology and services.
According to Bosch, the company operates through more than 300 subsidiaries and regional companies in more than 60 countries with a workforce of some 285,000 associates. Today, it employs more than 22,000 associates in more than 100 locations throughout Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
“Bosch’s 125 years of success have been driven by innovative solutions that enhance the quality of life, the dedication of our associates and the partnerships with our customers,” said Peter Marks, chairman, president and CEO, Robert Bosch LLC and member of the Bosch board of management.
He continued: “100 years ago, the company generated more sales in the U.S. than in Europe. Today, we continue to build upon the legacy of globalization inspired by the entrepreneurial vision of our founder.”
Later this summer, Bosch associates will celebrate the milestone with several Experience Days. More than 20 regional events will take place throughout North America, including celebrations hosted Ontario, among other locations. These events combined will host more than half the cumulative total of North American Bosch associates, where associates’ contribution to the company’s success will be recognized among families and communities, explained Bosch.
