Bosch Opens New Factory in China for Automotive Electronics

Leading automotive supplier, Bosch formally opened a new factory for the manufacture of automotive electronic components in China, in the Southeastern port city of Changzhou. The company has plans to invest an amount of more than 100 million euros in the factory by 2019 in the new factory, which will have a workforce of 1,300 employees. By the time it is fully operational in 2019, the factory is slated to have an annual capacity of 41 million electronic control units.

Commenting on the opening of the new plant, Klaus Meder, president of Bosch Automotive Electronics said that with the addition of the new facility, the company is strengthening its already successful localization strategy and highlighting its confidence in the Chinese market.

He added, With the new electronic plant we are also reacting to the growing local demand for connected products and solutions. China is the second largest market for Bosch, after Germany.

According to the press release issued by Bosch, the new factory will mainly focus on the production of electronic components for automated driving and connected products like radar sensors for driver assistance systems, cameras, Electronic Control Units (ECU) for automotive steering systems and Central Gateways for connected vehicles.

Bosch is planning to combine its Bosch Production System (BPS) for standardized lean processes with connected manufacturing at the new facility.
