A brief history of Bosch in Canada
Bosch opened its first office in Canada in Montreal in 1954 as a sales site under the name Robert Bosch (Canada) Ltd. In 1957, as we began to grow, we moved to a 2,500 sq. ft. office space at 33 Atomic Avenue in Etobicoke, Ontario. Then in 1974 the growing popularity of Bosch in Canada necessitated another move to an 89,000 sq. ft. location in Mississauga, Ontario. At that time, we changed our name to Robert Bosch Inc.
Today we distribute from our current offices on Creditview Road in Mississauga where we have occupied over 180,000 sq. ft since 2005. In fact, the addition of Gilmour Canada (a division of Robert Bosch Inc.) in 2007 adds another 30,000 sq. ft. to our distribution space in Mississauga.
The Mississauga distribution centre handles all distribution within Canada for the Automotive Aftermarket, Bosch Power Tools, Skil Power Tools, Dremel/Rotozip and the Security Division of Bosch. Over 200,000 orders destined to all areas of the country are processed here annually.
On January 1, 2007 BSH Household Appliances Limited, a subsidiary of Bosch (BSH Bosch and Siemens Home Appliances Group, the third largest appliance manufacturer in the world) opened their Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario. Then in September of 2008 BSH held the official unveiling and ribbon cutting of its premiere Canadian showroom – L’Atelier BSH in Montreal, Quebec.
