History of Bosch

With a storied past spanning generations, including two world wars, Bosch has made it through some turbulent times to emerge as one of the leading global suppliers of technology and services.

With operations covering four business sectors, including mobility solutions, industrial technology, consumer goods, and energy and building technology, Bosch offer a comprehensive range of innovative products and services designed to improve quality of life.

The impact that Bosch has had on the development of truck parts alone is staggering. From the very beginning, Bosch has led the way in innovation and social commitment that has carried through the very core of the company in the development of new technologies that focus on customer needs, shaping change for the future, and the continued pursuit of excellence.

Founder Robert Bosch

In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in Stuttgart, Germany, which would become the company we know today as Bosch.

With his improvements to the magneto ignition drive, and later the high-voltage magneto ignition system, Bosch experienced worldwide recognition as the world’s leading automotive supplier in the early 1900s.

Despite facing wars and economic collapse, Bosch experienced global expansion and continued to innovate. They developed a number of groundbreaking automobile components, including battery-powered ignition, starter motors, alternators and the diesel-injection pump.

Along with the establishment of its network of service workshops, the company also diversified into new technologies to bolster its product portfolio.

To this day, the ability to change and innovate is the foundation on which the company’s success is built—allowing it to master challenges such as digitalisation and transformation in mobility.

Commercial mobility solutions

While opportunities for the transportation industry continue to grow, challenges exist that Bosch seeks to address with a vision for mobility that is dynamic, safe, and sustainable.

Developing technologies to enable commercial vehicles to stay connected, offer automation, and employ carbon-neutral drive systems, Bosch is delivering solutions that support the future of truck parts and bus operations.

Connected mobility

V2X, or vehicle-to-everything, connectivity enables commercial vehicles to communicate with each other, with objects in their immediate surroundings, and with transportation infrastructure. This allows for fast, reliable connections between vehicles and objects and a safer driving experience thanks to driver assistance systems that include front and corner radar sensors and an AI-based camera.

V2X will be a key component of future autonomous driving.

Carbon-neutral powertrain systems

Demand for sustainable alternatives to the diesel combustion engine will experience extreme growth in the near future. Bosch is staying ahead of the game by developing H2 engines (or hydrogen combustion engines) and hydrogen fuel cell powertrains that will contribute to carbon-neutral mobility in the commercial vehicle sector.

Bosch automotive aftermarket

In Australia and New Zealand Bosch offers an extensive range of aftermarket parts for trucks, buses, and all commercial vehicle types. From new and exchange parts to repair solutions, Bosch provides:

· Batteries

· Brakes pads and rotors

· Diesel engine parts

· Electric parts

· Fuel pumps

· Fuel injectors

· Lambda sensors

· Sensors

· Starter motors and alternators

· Wipers

Bosch has a proven commitment to developing innovative mobility solutions for commercial applications. From passenger vehicles and multimodal transportation services to fleet management and smart technology, Bosch continues to bring together new technologies and systems that enhance and encourage sustainable productivity.
