Hundred million power tools from the Bosch plant in Miskolc

Miskolc – The hundred millionth product has rolled off the production line of the Robert Bosch Power Tool Kft. plant in Miskolc, bringing Bosch’s North Hungary plant to another milestone. The hundred millionth power tool was a two-speed cordless drill/driver, which from preliminary development through conceptual design right up to final assembly is the achievement of the professionals working in Miskolc. The event was attended by Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Ákos Kriza, Mayor of Miskolc.

The hundred millionth power tool was a PSR 14.4 LI-2 two-speed cordless drill/driver. Its lithium-ion technology guarantees that it is always ready for use, and it is easy to operate and ergonomic. Its 11-setting electronic torque selector is complemented with an extra drill setting. Only of these power tools more than a million have been made in Miskolc to date.

To the fullest extent, it is our competence-based technological approach that has enabled us to reach the hundred million mark and quadruple our production capacity in ten years. We are proud of every associates in the Miskolc plant that has contributed to this success. The plant fully embraces the Bosch values of teamwork, dedication and unconditional commitment to quality, and our results confirm that we can solidly build the future on these values.
