Recent business successes with prospects for more of the same, plus multiple technologies united under one uniform control system, and deep application know-how in Bosch Rexroth Group's five divisions were emphasized at its "1st Global Technology Summit" in late January 2005. Manfred Grundke, Bosch's executive board chairman, referred to "no lack of challenges" confronting automation companies in the coming decade, which will be characterized by rapid economic, technological, and organizational changes.

Grundke reported that Bosch Rexroth's revenues totaled 3.7 billion euros (about $4.8 billion) in 2003, while the firm's R&D spending for 2003 amounted to 184 million euros or 5% of sales. Grundke added that sales exceeded 4 billion euros for the first time in 2004, and that he is optimistic about 2005.

Grundke also stressed Bosch Rexroth's position as a single-source provider of electric drives and controls, hydraulics, pneumatics, linear and assembly technologies, and associated software. He says one uniform control system can handle interaction of electric, hydraulic, and pneumatic drives. Grundke also pointed to the company's expertise in industries it supplies.
