Solutions for special cases
Within Mannheim-based parent company FUCHS PETROLUB SE, the world’s largest independent lubricant manufacturer, FUCHS LUBRITECH is responsible for specialty lubricants and release agents. These are products that have to meet extremely demanding requirements and thus, above all, the challenges of the various individual applications, such as extreme heat, high torques or other environmental influences. “It’s the same at BOS,” explains Schneemann. The technical consultant is in his element when his customers suggest that they take a look at the guide rail together. Because here at the BOS headquarters, the experts are working on mechatronics, kinematics and plastic systems. Virtually all major OEMs in the automotive industry are supplied by BOS. The company’s history dates back to 1910: a traditional family business that has grown into a global player over the last 100 years, with 21 branches worldwide and 150,000 square meters of production space. The main development site in Ostfildern is correspondingly modern.
