Important Names in the History of Bosch

Date Published:

Although facts and figures are what usually makes up a company’s history, it is always good to pay tribute to the people who made everything happen. With its years in the automotive equipment industry, those important names can be a handful. Here are a few of the people who had made Bosch one of the most sought after automotive part supplier in the industry today.

Robert Bosch

What would a global brand and 125-year old company be without its founding father? The answer is simple—it wouldn't even have automotive equipment to sell and a name to begin with. Robert Bosch, then a 25-year old electrician, created a magneto ignition device for a stationary engine that later became the company’s key product, which launched its century-long career.

Camille Jenatzy

Bosch's history isn’t just made up of people who invent spark plugs and tweak cars. There are also those people who drive their way into the company's history. One of the earliest to do this was Camille Jenatzy. Jenatzy was a Belgian race car driver nicknamed Le Diable Rouge ("The Red Devil"). He was also one of Bosch’s go-to advertisers, with cartoonish posters littered with his red beard. But aside from representing Bosch in print, Jenatzy also helped established the brand’s reputation in the circuit by winning the 1903 Gordon Bennett Race in Ireland in a Bosch ignition system-equipped Mercedes.

Frederick Simms and Arnold Zähringer

The Bosch Company is often associated with continuous automotive innovation. But in its earlier years, the company found itself stuck in a rut. In1897, after installing magneto ignition devices on vehicle engines, English engineer Frederick Simms came to him with a proposition—install a magneto ignition device in a De Dion-Bouton three-wheeler. But with the more powerful, high-speed engine of the three-wheeler, the device was no longer a suitable upgrade. It was Arnold Zähringer, Bosch’s factory manager that solved the then-small-supplier’s problem. He fitted a weight metal sleeve and laid it around the armature on the engine to increase the ignition’s sparks per minute.

Bosch Oxygen Sensor

If your air to fuel mixture is not correct, your vehicle will run badly, but the Bosch oxygen sensor prevents this from happening. The Bosch oxygen sensor detects the amount of oxygen in the fuel and sends that information to the engine's control computer. Based on the data from the Bosh oxygen sensor, the computer calculates the current air to fuel ratio and instructs the fuel injectors to either add more or less fuel to the combustion chamber. The Bosch oxygen sensor sends this info several times a second. If your oxygen sensor is malfunctioning, the check engine light will alert you to the problem, and for an affordable amount of money, you can obtain a new Bosch oxygen sensor, especially when you do business with us, ordering via our secure website or toll-free number.

Have you been driving your car for many years now? If you have, chances are it’s already starting to show some signs of wear and tear. You may be starting to hear unusual noise from certain areas in your ride. It may not be running as efficiently as it used to. You may also be starting to see leaks here or there, experience some part malfunctions, or simply feel like your vehicle has already aged. It’s not a lost cause, though. You can still restore your vehicle to its once efficient performance. All you need are the right replacements—get Bosch parts! Whether it’s your engine, your suspension, brakes, steering unit, lights, or exhaust system, all these parts wear out over time. Some components and assemblies even start to fail.
