Bosch UK has opened its new state-of-the-art facility designed to provide a single northern location for Bosch, which combines Bosch Rexroth (industrial drives and controls), and Worcester, Bosch Group (heating and hot-water solutions).

The facility in Normanton, near Wakefield, consolidates three Bosch sites in the North of England into a single location. It  provides customer service and support to its Bosch Rexroth mechanical engineering customers and training to its installers in the heating and hot-water sector.

Bosch Rexroth will design and manufacture hydraulic systems for many industry sectors, including marine, offshore and bulk materials handling, at the  site. It will also be a base for hydraulic training and courses.

A fully equipped workshop and test site will service and repair hydraulic equipment, both at the site and in the field, for UK and overseas customers.
