Wetzlar – Bosch Thermotechnology will gradually put its global large systems business under the umbrella of the Bosch brand. Since April 2012, the CHP plants and ORC systems previously marketed under the Köhler & Ziegler brand have been offered under the Bosch brand name. The industrial boilers marketed under the Loos brand will follow in July 2012.

“With the planned brand change to Bosch, TT will lay the foundation for continued growth in this attractive business segment by offering a comprehensive product portfolio under a single brand, tapping new markets and strengthening its position as a world-leading supplier. Business will benefit from the high name recognition and reputation of the Bosch brand,” said Uwe Glock, President of the Board of Management of the Thermotechnology Division.

Products from the lower output range, e.g. for single-family homes, will continue to be marketed in each country under the respective strong and leading Bosch Thermotechnology brands. This business segment will also be expanded going forward.
