BLOGS: BOSCH GOES BIG

by

I am, officially, the first person to receive training at the enormous new Bosch training centre in Uxbridge.

When I say the centre is new, it’s so new that most of it still only exists on some architects drawings. The building’s there, sure enough, but the four workshops, four classrooms, diesel repair centre (with clean room), stores, offices, lunch area and servery aren’t. Yet.

And when I say training, I actually mean a 20-minute demo of the new KTS software which is available from April. Between you and me, I wouldn’t let me diagnose your car for you just yet, if I was you.

The new system looks 10 times better and easier to use than the current set-up, and it won’t cost a penny more. A new interface makes it far easier to select cars and menu options, and it’s far more integrated so you don’t have to go chasing around to link codes up to diagrams and information. Very slick.

The new training centre is absolutely vast. It is costing millions to kit out and will quadruple the amount of training which Bosch is currently able to offer at its over-subscribed site in Denham a few miles up the road.

Looking at the empty shell, it really doesn’t seem plausible that it will be open for business this June. This isn’t a loft extension, however, it’s a state-of-the-art training centre for cutting-edge automotive work and with Bosch paying the bills it’s going to be ready and it’s going to be very, very impressive.
