The joint venture will offer complete diesel exhaust aftertreatment systems made of standard components from the three companies. Shown is Bosch’s Departronic diesel fuel metering system for particulate filter regeneration for commercial vehicles.

Robert Bosch GmbH, Deutz AG, and Eberspaecher GmbH & Co. KG have signed an agreement to set up a joint venture—to be known as Bosch Emission Systems GmbH & Co. KG and headquartered in Stuttgart—in the area of diesel exhaust aftertreatment. The agreement is subject to the approval of antitrust authorities. The JV’s objective is to use the core exhaust aftertreatment competencies of the three companies and, using a modular approach, offer complete system solutions for both mobile and stationary construction and agricultural machinery, as well as for commercial vehicles such as trucks and buses. These complete systems include electronic control and, if required, optimized burner technology for the regeneration of diesel particulate filters. The new company is to start operations in January with about 100 associates from the companies involved. Series production is expected to start in the third quarter of the year.
