Bosch has appointed Altran as its strategic partner in the area of global engineering consulting services. As a result of the deal, it is expected that Altran will become one of Bosch's largest global external suppliers of engineering consulting services.
The German multinational is currently in the middle of a massive transformation. It is changing its business model from a typical "Time & Materials" approach to an "End-to-End Solutions" service provider. As part of the partnership, Altran will play a large role in supporting the transformation.
Earlier this year, Altran signed a similar large contract with French automotive firm PSA Peugeot Citroen.
"Altran and Bosch will now be able to strengthen their cooperation not only in Germany but also in all the other European countries, as well as in Asia, the US and South America. We are indeed very proud to accompany the worldwide development of this multi-industry leader", says Cosimo De Carlo, Executive Director at Altran.
Manfred Moll, Director at Bosch, declared: "With Altran, we have a partner capable of providing support for our broad range of activities in the different divisions by supplying engineering services for specific projects where there is a demand".
