Default Mico becomes "more" bosch

Robert Bosch is going to buy 20% more stake in Mico Bosch. They already hold 60.55% of Mico.

Looks like the German Auto giant is getting more serious about the Indian market.

Mico is already Bosch and this has been going on for sometime now. All there email address already read bosch. The process for renaming has already started and will become public knowledge very soon.

bosch also has security products for your home if you didnt know already, Bosch Security Systems: CCTV, Intrusion detection, Congress systems, Access Management, Fire detection, Public Address, on-site paging. dect, congress, fire, intrusion, access, public address, call center, call centre, bss

Their plan is to retain the MICO brand name for their traditional, lower end products since MICO brand enjoys considerable goodwill in India. Newer and all higher end products will be sold under Bosch brand name.

Is this also to do with the expected spurt in demand for common-rail diesels?

This is not true. In a few years all products will be sold as bosch.

@GTO - This has nothing to do with CRDI systems. It has been happening for the last 4 years now.
