12 October 2012
Robert Bosch GmbH, DEUTZ AG, and Eberspächer GmbH & Co. KG have agreed to restructure their collaboration in the area of diesel exhaust-gas treatment, with Bosch planning to acquire all the shares in Bosch Emission Systems GmbH & Co. KG (BESG) from DEUTZ and Eberspächer. The purchase price will not be disclosed; the transaction is subject to approval by the antitrust authorities.
BESG will continue to offer exhaust-gas treatment systems. In the future, the company plans to increase its business with truck and engine manufacturers as well as non-road-mobile machinery manufacturers in North America and Asia. DEUTZ and Eberspächer will continue to work with BESG within the framework of customer and supply agreements.
Since it was set up in 2010, BESG has offered a modular system for treating the diesel exhaust gas of vehicles ranging from construction and agricultural machinery to trucks and buses.
In addition, the collaboration between Bosch and DEUTZ is to be expanded, and will take the form of an innovation partnership. The partnership will focus on exhaust-gas treatment, diesel injection technology, and electronics. The goal of this intensified collaboration will be to improve systems integration in powertrain technology for mobile machinery. BESG will also continue to supply DEUTZ with systems for exhaust-gas treatment.
Eberspächer will continue to supply components to BESG. In addition, Bosch and Eberspächer intend to collaborate closely on joint development projects in the area of exhaust-gas treatment technology.
