Wetzlar/Engels – The Bosch Thermotechnology division plans to set up a new manufacturing facility at the existing Bosch location in Engels, Russia. It will produce industrial boilers and wall-mounted conventional boilers. Construction of the new plant is due to start in March 2013, with completion planned for the first quarter of 2014. Some 21 million euros are to be invested in total. If all goes to plan, some 170 new jobs will be created by 2016, 100 of them in production and 70 in administration.
