Bosch has transformed its French headquarters into an innovation campus designed to inspire new products and ideas.
The €19 million investment in the Saint-Ouen site incorporates a symbolic ‘bridge to the future’ connecting the old building to a new bespoke open space where Bosch workers can more easily collaborate. A multi-purpose hub, the campus includes creative zones, quiet spaces and a showroom where clients can learn more about the company’s products and solutions.
“We are also symbolically building a bridge between our 118-year tradition in France and our ambitions for the future in this country,” Bosch board of management member Uwe Raschke said at the opening ceremony for the new complex. “Especially in established markets in western Europe, Bosch is looking to inspire people with innovative products and solutions. By redesigning our French corporate headquarters, we have created the conditions for a freer, more interdisciplinary way of working – and therefore for more enthusiasm, creativity, and progress,” Raschke said.
