What distinguishes us

We bundle the competencies from various divisions and plants of Robert Bosch GmbH to make them available to our customers. To this end, we work closely with the manufacturing and Bosch research departments in Renningen. Bosch Advanced Ceramics itself coordinates the cooperation and is in contact with the customers.

We are Bosch Advanced Ceramics

What makes Bosch Advanced Ceramics special is the diversity of our business model: Various teams from the fields of manufacturing, assembly, research and development at the various Bosch locations work together with Bosch Advanced Ceramics on the common task of further developing technical ceramics and supplying our customers with the best products.

At the beginning of the 20th century, mass production of the groundbreaking Bosch spark plug began, and in 1939 Bosch applied for the first patent for injection moulding of technical ceramics. Bosch Advanced Ceramics was founded as a start-up in 2016 to bundle Bosch competencies in technical ceramics and drive developments forward.

Experience meets innovation

Bosch Advanced Ceramics was founded in 2016 as CERIX and is part of grow platform GmbH, Bosch's own home for global start-ups and intrapreneurs. With the support of grow, we started as an idea and have evolved into one of the market leaders in ceramic 3D printing. At grow, we benefit from a global network, systematic support in our business development and form innovation hubs that pave our way to becoming an independent business unit. This allows us to use the know-how of a global player and at the same time retain the flexibility of a start-up – for optimal processes and outstanding technical ceramics.

Bosch Advanced Ceramics has its origins in the Bosch plant in Blaichach, which has been manufacturing for the automotive sector for many years. These advantages stand us in good stead: Producing components with quantities in the millions in the highest and most consistent quality is our standard. In line with this standard, we manufacture the most sophisticated products from technical ceramics and develop innovative manufacturing processes so that customers can use our know-how in the application of state-of-the-art processes for the production of their innovative products.
