Milestones in our success story
Bosch Thermotechnology has been operating globally for over 125 years, ensuring people are warm and comfortable in their homes with efficient, easy-to-use and reliable appliances. Today we offer solutions for indoor climate, hot water, and decentralised energy management with a focus on intelligent and connected technology.
Patent granted to Hugo Junkers for the Calorimeter - a measuring device in which the combustion heat developed by gas is transferred completely to running water and thus the calorific value can be continuously measured.
Based on the calorimeter principle, Junkers developed a ‘liquid heater’ which laid the theoretical foundation for condensing technology.
Junkers releases a continuous flow water heater. Water is heated instantly as it flows through the appliance at the time of use, and hot water can be enjoyed in unlimited quantities.
Junkers appliances are released for the first time in Australia.
Robert Bosch (Australia) Pty Ltd take over distribution of Junkers products within Australia.
Bosch is the first manufacturer to introduce the piezoelectric ignition for gas appliances. The ignition requires only a push of a button instead of a match or gas lighter.
Development and release of the first locally designed and assembled, externally mounted hot water heater known as the ‘Wall Box’.
Junkers branded products are renamed as Bosch products in Australia.
Junkers introduces its first wall-hung gas condensing boiler.
Release of the Water Wizard range of externally mounted domestic hot water units. These were designed in Australia and manufactured at the Clayton plant.
Release of internal and external continuous flow gas water heaters with battery ignition, eliminating the need for a constantly burning pilot light.
Production of water heaters at the Clayton, Victoria site ceases.
Bosch Thermotechnology is the first supplier in the world to use a hydrodynamic generator as an energy source for igniting the burner. The hot water unit operates using only gas and water.
Release of the HydroPower range of internal and external water heaters using a hydrodynamic generator.
Introduction of 50R series of electronic water heaters.
Bosch launches 32L series of commercial hot water heaters.
The 70R series of electronic water heaters known as Highflow is released.
Bosch introduces the 26 eco+ and 32C continuous flow models. Both water heaters utilise condensing technology and are 6 star energy efficient.
Bosch launches the high-efficiency Compress 3000 Heat Pump water heater.
Bosch condensing boilers for hydronic heating are released to the Australian Market.
Launch of hot water and steam industrial boilers.
Bosch’s Compress 3000 AW air-to-water heat pump for hydronic heating is introduced.
Launch of Australia’s first Bluetooth connected hot water appliance.
