Bosch Home Appliances Celebrates 125 Years of The Bosch Group

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Bosch home appliances proudly celebrates the 125th anniversary of its parent company, The Bosch Group. Established by Robert Bosch in 1886, The Bosch Group includes more than 300 subsidiaries and regional companies in over 60 countries, and has a workforce of 280,000 associates worldwide. In the U.S., Bosch home appliances is headquartered in Huntington Beach, CA. The company also operates an appliance park in New Bern, N.C. comprised of state-of-the-art factories for washers, dryers, dishwashers, ranges, ovens and cooktops.

Robert Bosch founded his company with a strong commitment to customers, famously saying, "We'd rather lose money than the trust of our customers." Bosch continues this commitment by delivering innovations "Invented for Life." For Bosch home appliances, "Invented for Life" means ensuring precision German engineering, modern design and efficient performance in its appliances. Bosch appliances include:

  • 800 Plus Dishwasher -- The 800 Plus dishwasher is the most water- and energy-efficient in the U.S., using as low as 1.57 gallons of water per cycle, 70 percent less than the average dishwasher, and operating on only 180 kWh/y of energy.
  • Induction Cooktops -- Bosch induction cooktops are built using proprietary technology. This allows Bosch to bring revolutionary technologies to market such as AutoChef sensor cooking.
  • VitaFresh™ Technology -- Available in Bosch French door refrigerators, VitaFresh technology automatically maintains the perfect balance of temperature, humidity and air circulation so produce stays fresher, longer, than when stored in a conventional refrigerator.

Sustainability plays an important role at Bosch home appliances and has been part of Bosch's DNA since its founding. Sustainability at Bosch appliances has evolved to acting in a responsible manner across the board -- from manufacturing, to efficiency during product life and ensuring product recyclability when its life cycle is over.
