Bosch Automotive Service Solutions Inc. (AA-AS) is division of the Automotive Aftermarket (AA) business unit as part of Robert Bosch GmbH. We have a manufacturing facility located in Owatonna, MN USA along with additional satellite offices around the United States, including Warren, Michigan, Santa Barbara, California, Romeoville, Illinois, and other smaller locations.
AA-AS is migrating to the AA business model and the related ERP system within the next eighteen months. Until then, AA-AS will continue to utilize the local ERP system and communicate local requirements using this site. Example includes the Supplier Report Card, and information regarding set-up as a new supplier, Production Process and Product Approval Process (PPA), or quoting requirements. For additional information, please see the Supplier Report Card section.
As we evolve and roll out changes within the AA-AS Purchasing and Supplier Quality organization we will update and adapt this website accordingly.
