Wetzlar, Munich – As of 1 January 2018, Junkers Bosch, a brand of Bosch Thermotechnik GmbH, will take over and continue the distribution of electric instantaneous water heaters from BSH Hausgeräte GmbH. The water heaters until now sold under the Siemens brand will in future carry the Bosch logo. The Ufesa brand will be continued unchanged by Junkers Bosch.

The instantaneous water heaters ideally fit into Junkers Bosch’s portfolio of heating and DHW systems. As consumers know and appreciate the Bosch brand, heating contractors stand to benefit from the new branding. Until its transfer, BSH Hausgeräte GmbH will continue the business in the proven way.

The portfolio comprises electric instantaneous water heaters with rated outputs from twelve to 27 kilowatts, small instantaneous water heaters (3.5 to 7.2 kilowatts) and small storage tanks with volumes from five to 15 litres. The products fitted with innovative technology already meet the more stringent energy efficiency requirements of the new Ecodesign Directive coming into effect in 2018. They are all in the highest energy efficiency class (A).

Bosch Thermotechnology is a leading European manufacturer of sustainable and energy-efficient heating, cooling and hot water solutions. In fiscal 2021, the company generated sales of about 4 billion euros (64 percent outside Germany) and employed approx. 14,200 people.
