German technology company Bosch is keen to expand its footprint in the Nigerian market after establishing its first local office in 2014 following more than a century of operating in the country and around the continent through appointed dealers.

That decision has since paid off with the local Bosch office having doubled its domestic staff to more than fifty as its market outlook continues to improve.

Addressing the media during the company’s event tagged ‘Bosch in Everything,’ designed to host customers and business, which held in Lagos, the Managing Director Bosch Nigeria, Ghislain Noumbessy said the sentiment was that Bosch has found a home away from home in the Nigerian market.

Bosch Group’s President for Africa, Markus Thill, said: “With an estimated population of more than 206 million by 2020, Nigeria is a strategically important market for Bosch. Our company provides solutions in sectors such as infrastructure, automotive, food processing, and energy which enhance quality of life of the growing Nigerian population by making it safer, easier, and more efficient.”

The company has operations in all of its four business sectors in the country: Mobility Solutions, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods, and Energy and Building Technology
The Power Tools division has aligned with the construction industry in imparting skills through onsite training for artisans and tradesmen and offering suitable solutions in terms of tools and accessories.

Bosch security systems, has been supporting projects from concept to design and finally implementation with our appointed partners.
A key focus for Robert Bosch Nigeria is to provide packaging technology solutions to the food processing industry which has the benefits of reduced wastage, improved production and ultimately improve food hygiene.
