Bosch plans to build new laboratories, two production buildings, and additional heat-pump production lines at the plant in Aveiro, south of Porto.
Bosch sees Aveiro as an important location in the European development and production network for heat pumps. Bosch will invest a total of more than €1bn in expanding this network by the end of the decade.
The location is also home to the development of heat pumps for Southern Europe. In addition, the Aveiro plant will manufacture the outdoor units and wall-mounted indoor units for the next-generation, Compress 5800i AW and Compress 6800i AW propane heat pumps.
