Bosch launches contest to recognize best Bosch service center

Bosch has launched a new contest for its exclusive Bosch Car Service network of shops seeking the best shops across the U.S. Participating shops are required to upload a photo of their facility, and the photos of the top three shops that reflect the best use of the Bosch Car Service brand will win the prize. Three winners – all of whom must be shop owners – will be selected to receive a trip to go behind the scenes with Bosch at Hendrick Motorsports in Concord, N. C. For more details and to enter, visit

“This program gives our BCS shops a chance to show off their pride in the Bosch Car Service brand, and to be rewarded for that in a way that no one else can,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management at Robert Bosch LLC.

Winning shop owners, each accompanied by a guest, will travel to Hendrick Motorsports April 29 to 30, 2013. The winner’s package includes a tour of the facility, a chance to watch pit practice, check out the engine shop, speak with engine department personnel and have the unique opportunity to view Rick Hendrick’s private car collection.

“The Bosch Car Service brand carries the Bosch reputation for high quality, while Hendrick Motorsports is at the top of their game, as well,” Pauly said.

“Bosch’s long-standing relationship with Hendrick Motorsports has been crucial in providing this access to a behind-the-scenes look for our winners,” said Pauly. Hendrick Motorsports team engines are equipped with Bosch spark plugs, alternators, starters, injectors, oxygen sensors, fuel pumps, ignition coils, as well as Bosch fuel pressure sensors.

The Bosch Car Service network is a collection of independent repair centers, servicing gasoline, diesel and hybrid-powered vehicles. Bosch Service centers receive quality parts, diagnostic and wheel service equipment and training from Bosch, the largest automotive original equipment and aftermarket parts manufacturer in the world.

“Top independent repair shops – or those that are looking to be a part of a network that can help them achieve greater visibility and success – are encouraged to join the Bosch Car Service Network,” said Mark Polke, director of workshop concepts and service for Bosch Car Service at Robert Bosch LLC. “Partnering with Bosch provides shops access to the most current technical service information, highest quality parts and a wide variety of merchandising tools from the world’s largest supplier of automotive parts and systems to vehicle manufacturers and the aftermarket,” he said.
