Robert Bosch opened his workshop for precision mechanics and electrical engineering in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1886. Over the following decades led his company to international success. The evidence of his visionary, values-driven and socially responsible leadership is still evident in the Bosch Group today.
More than 125 years since Robert Bosch first established his own company, the Bosch Group is a leading global supplier of technology and services. The group comprises Robert Bosch GmbH and its more than 300 subsidiaries and regional companies in more than 60 countries; the company’s global network comprises more than 150 countries.
One of the three Bosch business sectors is consumer goods and building technology, which includes the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. Robert Bosch Tool Corporation in North America was formed in January 2003 when Robert Bosch GmbH combined its North American power tool, accessory and lawn and garden divisions into one organization. Today, with 3,500 associates in North America and 18,000 worldwide, the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation has a rich portfolio of iconic brands including Bosch tools, accessories and measuring tools, SKIL®, Dremel® , RotoZip, CST/berger, Vermont American®, Nelson® and Gilmour®.
