Bosch celebrated 100 years in South-East Asia with Bosch Experience Day

Bosch Experience Day showcased innovations and technology created and developed by Bosch

Bosch has been in South-East Asia for 100 years. The first regional office was opened in Surabaya, Indonesia followed four years later with an office in Malaysia. To commemorate their centenary in the region, Bosch held an exhibition called Bosch Experience Day to demonstrate their wide range of products and solutions, both past and present day. Bosch Malaysia also launched a new electric instantaneous water heater.

Guests at the event were able to enjoy a personal look at some of the company’s latest products and technology and participate in product demonstrations. The Spokespersons of the various divisions in Bosch Malaysia were at hand to discuss their divisions and products. There was also a “100 Years Milestone” exhibition that included a brief history of the company’s founder, Robert Bosch, and key inventions and products in the company’s journey to becoming a leading global supplier of technology and services.

Bosch products are both seen and unseen in almost every aspects of our lives. Every car we drive has components and features invented and manufactured by Bosch, the first invention being the spark plug. Bosch produces automotive equipment, domestic appliances, power tools, industrial tools, security systems and industry systems for smart factories.

Bosch also hosted a discussion on Industry 4.0 with Simon Song, the Managing Director of Bosch Malaysia, as moderator. As the company moves into its next 100 years, the focus is on upskilling the Malaysian workforce with Industry 4.0. This is in line with the government’s National Policy on Industry 4.0 also known as Industry4RWD to encourage the Malaysian manufacturing sector and related industries to embrace digital connectivity and smart factories. Bosch has solutions with an array of products including sensors, IoT gateway, software, APAS robots, Active Assist and MMS4.0 (Modular Mechatronic System).

The panel also highlighted Bosch’s partnership with Kedah Industrial Skills and Management Development Centre (KISMIC) to promote applying I4.0 in technical and vocational education training (TVET). The partnership will support I4.0 in TVET through programmes and activities by leveraging both parties’ shared facilities, service technologies and expertise.
