Bosch will open a training facility with its entire appliance range at the Bosch Group Oceania headquarters site in Clayton, Victoria, in August 2020.

Measuring 230 square metres, the facility will feature a fully functional kitchen, as well as plumbed laundry and dishwashing areas. It will be home to the first Bosch Home Connect appliance showcase in Oceania, with plans to incorporate the Bosch Smart Home system when available in Australia. Home Connect Plus enables Bosch customers to control their appliances, as well as other devices such as heating, lighting, and curtains, from one software platform.

The primary purpose of the training facility is to showcase the breadth of the Bosch product portfolio, including building solution products such as heating and security systems, Bosch powered ebikes, smart agriculture solutions and more, for commercial customers, building developers and retail partners.

BSH general manager, Robert Warner (pictured above) said the new facility will showcase the entire Bosch Home Appliance product portfolio to key stakeholders.

“In the current climate, it will allow us a hub to create new digital and social content to stay connected with our partners and customers. Long term, it will provide a space to engage, train, demonstrate and deliver an experience for our retailers, architects, developers and end consumers,” he told Appliance Retailer.
