At the automotive supplier bosch in bamberg, the effects of the ongoing debate about diesel vehicle emissions are being felt, but are not having a major impact on production. "We can give a bit of an all-clear", said martin schultz, commercial manager at the site. The order situation in the gasoline segment is very pleasing, and is still satisfactory for diesel products. The number of employees is largely stable at the moment with 7700 employees. However, schultz admitted that in the middle of this year, due to the business situation, temporary contracts of employees were not extended, so that 300 fewer employees were working here in bamberg compared to the previous year. Components for gasoline and diesel engines, such as injection injectors, spark plugs and sensor elements for lambda probes, are manufactured at the site, which has various plant parts. No longer in the portfolio are in short so-called battery packs. The prototype construction for porsche hybrid models will be discontinued at the end of the year, according to technical plant manager stefan schmitz.
