Germany's Bosch to Expand Activities in Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Bosch company is planning to broaden its trade and business in Iran in different fields, a senior manager of the company announced.
"Currently, the Bosch company is cooperating with 55 firms in Iran and seeks to expand its activities in the region,” a senior official of Bosch Auto Spare parts company said.
He said that Bosch has been cooperating with its Iranian partners for many years, adding, "The first Bosch representative office was opened in Iran in 1924 and the first contract with Iranian automotive maker was signed in 1971”.
