NEW BERN, N.C. (April 17, 2013) – BSH Home Appliance Corporation celebrated today the reopening of an upgraded production line at its factory in New Bern, N.C. and the return of 100 employees to begin production of the next generation line of Bosch dishwashers.
The reopening of the production line marks the culmination of the $50 million investment by Bosch into the new line to continue its leadership position as the quietest dishwasher brand in North America.
“We are glad to be welcoming back our employees to work on an all-new production line that will produce a line of dishwashers that will take Bosch to the next level,” said Christian Westebbe, Chief Financial Officer BSH Home Appliance Corp. “New Bern employees are a major part of what makes Bosch dishwashers so exceptional. From using quality materials and sound reduction technologies to conducting extreme testing including 485 points of quality checks, our employees build exacting quality into every Bosch dishwasher.”
The new Bosch dishwasher line coming in May will redefine what customers can expect in design, quietness and quality from one of America’s leading dishwasher brands.
