Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions Private Limited (RBEI) has changed its name to Bosch Global Software Technologies Private Limited (BGSW). The new name is effective from January 3.

The name change is said to complement the company’s expansion plans and hiring strategy to recruit best-in-class talent from premier universities in the areas of artificail interlligence (AI), machine learning (ML), cybersecurity, computer vision and other new age technologies.

In line with that, the company is looking to hire more than 5500 engineers in 2022. The company is also expanding to new locations with a new centre slated to be inaugurated in Hyderabad, and Pune and Hanoi in Vietnam later in the year.

The change will be one of the largest that RBEI will undertake since its inception 25 years ago. The company’s restructuring began in Q2 FY 2020 , as part of the company’s effort to accelerate business strategy, anticipate future demand and adapt to market change.
