Bosch Automotive sets up 10 bike service centres in Coimbatore

Bosch Automotive today announced the setting up 10 two-wheeler service centres in Coimbatore, known as the Express Bike Service (EBS).
The company, which had opened its first EBS outlet in Delhi, plans to open a minimum of 500 such workshops within the next two years, senior Bosch officials said at the inauguration.

''India's two-wheeler industry is growing at a faster pace. But other than original equipment service centres only roadside mechanics are offering the service,'' S Muralidharan, vice president, automotive aftermarket said, adding that the two-wheeler users are looking for a credible service option beyond the warranty period of the vehicle.

The EBS outlets will focus on general service for two-wheelers. It would not do engine and tyre related work. The EBS would be similar to a franchisee model with Bosch giving EBS outlets spare parts, training and technical training for mechanics. Besides, these outlets have to follow the basic norms set by Bosch.

Bosch automotive aftermarket is responsible for automotive spare parts and accessories, vehicle diagnostics, and service workshop concept like Bosch car service and Bosch diesel service.

The company is headquartered in Bangalore and has manufacturing facilities in Nashik, Naganathapua, Jaipur and Goa as well. Its automotive segment manufactures and trades products as diverse as diesel and gasoline fuel injection systems, automotive aftermarket products, auto electricals, special purpose machines, packaging machines, electric power tools and security systems.
