Successful all over the world
Founded in 1967 as a joint venture of Robert Bosch GmbH (Stuttgart) and Siemens AG (Munich), BSH has belonged exclusively to the Bosch Group since January 2015. Over its almost 50-year history, the company has grown from a German exporter into the world's² second-largest home appliance manufacturer. With more than 56,000 employees, BSH increased its revenue in 2015 to around 12.6 billion euros. BSH has some 40 factories worldwide and produces the entire range of modern home appliances. This ranges from cookers, ovens and extractor hoods, dishwashers, washing machines, dryers, fridges and freezers to small appliances (Consumer Products) such as vacuum cleaners, coffee machines, kettles, irons and hairdryers.
The consumer is at the center of all of the BSH's developments. Improving the consumer's quality of life is what determines the company's activities. With the individual needs of local consumers in mind, the company develops home appliances that are characterized by intelligent design, user-friendliness and energy efficiency. Time and again, BSH sets new standards with technologies such as "Home Connect," the world's first solution to allow connected home appliances from more than one brand to be controlled with a single app. The crucial factor in all of BSH's developments is not what is technically possible, but what offers real personal benefit to the consumer.
