Bosch against Neff

It's not common knowledge but Bosch and Neff are part of the same group of companies, BSH Home Appliances. In fact many of the models on offer from both companies are the same machines underneath.

I often get people on the sales line asking me which is the better brand and which performs better. It's a tough question to answer because, specification levels aside, it's just the facia and badge which seperates them.

Another point is the pricing level, as both manufacturers are pitched in at different sectors of the market, Neff do tend to be a bit pricier....

About Bosch

I have previously written quite a few posts about Bosch appliances, their features and specifications, but today I thought I would take some time to let you know some of the UK history of the company. 

Bosch has been active in the United Kingdom since 1898, which is quite a lot longer than most kitchen manufacturers have been running altogether. Robert Bosch opened his first overseas office in London and later moved to Oxford Street. Today the UK headquarters can be found in Buckinghamshire.

Bosch UK employs aound five thousand staff and is now one of the UK's largest European investors.
