Investments and extension course of action

Rising demand

Consistent development of the manufacturing capacity to meet the growing demand of semiconductors chips (ASICs, MEMS and power semiconductors).

From 2021 to 2023

With 150 million euros in two steps from 2021 to 2023 will gain about 4,000m² of new cleanroom surface area that will be realized in existing buildings. In addition, 150 new jobs in the fields of semiconductor development will be raised.

Till end of 2025

State-of-the-art manufacturing: more than 250 million euros will be invested for a new element, the total amount of the cleanroom surface area will raise up to 44,000 m².

Mobility is the largest Bosch Group business sector. In 2023, its sales came to 56.2 billion euros, or just under 60 percent of total Group sales. This makes the Bosch Group one of the leading mobility suppliers. Bosch Mobility pursues a vision of mobility that is safe, sustainable, and exciting. For its customers, the outcome is integrated mobility solutions.
