    Bosch Service - since 1921

    The Bosch Service Concept began in 1921. With the invention of the fuel injection pump in 1927, the need also arose for inspection- and repair services, specifically for diesel systems. Subsequently, over the decades, the independent concept of the Bosch Diesel Service developed, which ultimately became today's worldwide network of repair workshops.

Bosch Diesel Repair Network – A service concept with a tradition

As early as 1921, the first "Installation and repair workshop of Robert Bosch AG" was opened. Since then the company Max Eisenmann & Co. has been one of the longest established car repair workshops in Hamburg. Just five years later, the official registration of the brand “Bosch Service” as well as its own trademark, the "double T anchor", followed. At that time there were already 20 Bosch service stations that had been set up at key transport nodes in Germany. The rapid establishment of a global brand also fostered the setting up and expansion of agencies and stores overseas. In 1992, the 10,000th mark was finally achieved with the establishment of the Bosch Service "Peter Müller & Söhne" in Halle. Meanwhile, the associates working in customer service were trained in the company's own training centres in order to provide uniform quality standards to customers around the world.

As one of the world's largest manufacturers of diesel systems and components, from the very beginning, Bosch's mission was to be No. 1 in the development of diesel fuel injection systems. With the invention of the injection pump by Bosch in 1927, the development of high-performance diesel drives for motorised vehicles was made possible.

Since then, Bosch has established itself as a leading provider of diesel technology and is continuously developing innovative concepts for diesel engines—be it for commercial vehicles or passenger cars. Consequently, the existing Bosch Service concept was supplemented by special workshops, which specialised in the repair and service of diesel systems. Since the 30s, the repair of diesel components has been established as a separate business area within Bosch Service. By the end of the 60s, Bosch had a worldwide network of workshops, which had specialised in this field. Today there is now a global network of about 3,500 repair workshops, which, as licensed and independent partners of Bosch, cater to fleet operators as well as private customers.

As an all-rounder, the "Bosch Diesel Centre" has specialised in the diagnosis and repair of all diesel systems and components. In contrast, the "Bosch Diesel Service" focuses primarily on the repair of diesel components. The successful concept is based mainly on the combination of the extensive know-how and the Bosch worldwide organisation, as well as the highly specialised workshops.
