What is Bosch?

What does Bosch actually do?

By Hannah Williams

Bosch is a multinational engineering and electronics company that produces automotive components and industrial products.

Headquartered in Germany, Bosch is one of the world’s largest suppliers of automotive components. The company also manufactures industrial products such as drives and controls in addition to building products like powers tools and security systems.

The company was founded by Robert Bosch, who started the company in a backyard in Stuttgart-West. A year later, Bosch made the first low voltage magneto for gas motors, followed twenty years later by the first automobile magneto.

From Robert Bosch’s first factory in 1901, the company has grown to include over 440 subsidiary companies, with over 112,300 employees based in Germany alone.
