Company summary

BOSAL was founded in 1923 by Karel Bos in Alkmaar, the Netherlands, hence the name of the company: Bos+Al(kmaar). Since then, the firm has enjoyed decades of steady growth, a process that was further accelerated by expansion overseas (in both Europe and Africa) in the 1960s and 70s. When BOSAL opened several OEM factories in Europe, NAFTA & South America in the 1990s, it established its place as a major global OEM automotive supplier.

To meet both the rising demand and the needs of its customers, BOSAL has established several production and research centers around the world and entered into production and research partnerships and formed successful joint ventures with a number of major industry players.
