Our Company

Bosch in the Philippines


Our history in the Philippines dates back to 1926 when Behn Meyer & Co. – a Hamburg-founded/Singapore-based company – began distributing Bosch products, allowing them to evolve from trading and shipping to supplying for a wide variety of industries across South East Asia.

For over 80 years, we have operated on the knowledge that our business is a matter of public trust, and it is no different today, when, as the sixth fastest growing economy in the world, Bosch Philippines positions itself as the resilient leader in innovations, providing quality products and services that ultimately enhance the quality of life.
