Bosch Corporation (RBJP)
In 1939 Diesel Kiki Co., Ltd. was founded under a Bosch license for domestic
production of fuel-injection pumps for diesel engines. Originally established with an investment
from a then major Japanese manufacturer of engines for heavy-duty vehicles, this company was renamed
ZEXEL Corp. in 1990 and reorganized as Bosch Automotive Systems Corp. in 2000.
Effectively July 1, 2005 Bosch K.K. merged with Bosch Automotive Systems Corp. and was renamed
to Bosch Corporation. We are confident that the merger will make it possible to provide our customers
with better customer-oriented services and state-of-the-art technologies, while generating further
synergy effects through effective utilization of the business resources.
