Bosch Unveils New Advancements in Refrigeration and Laundry at International Builders' Show 2007

From Its Versatile New Modular Integra Refrigeration to the Increased Energy Efficiency of Its Nexxt® Laundry, Bosch Offers Builders and Consumers Valuable Appliance Solutions

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 6, 2007 -- Premium appliance manufacturer Bosch introduces its latest appliances with the flexibility and advanced features that will please both builders and homeowners at the 2007 International Builders' Show. Bosch's new ENERGY STAR® qualified Integra® Refrigeration is a customizable system of modular fresh, frozen and wine units that let you optimize the cool storage capabilities of any kitchen, no matter the size or shape. Bosch also adds an ECOWASH™ option to its ENERGY STAR® qualified Nexxt washers to produce even greater energy savings, while expanding the laundry collection with the new top-of-the-line 500 plus and 800 Series.

"We are pleased to introduce our new modular Integra Refrigeration, which completes the Bosch kitchen and solidifies our brand as the leader in products that meet builders' and homeowners' evolving needs," said Franz J. Bosshard, president and CEO. "Bosch is also proud to demonstrate our environmental leadership as the only manufacturer offering entire product lines in the dishwasher, laundry and refrigeration categories that are all ENERGY STAR qualified."

Other products Bosch will be showcasing at IBS include Integra Slide-In Ranges, Evolution™ Free-Standing Ranges, award-winning Integra and Evolution dishwashers, Evolution Refrigeration, gas and electric cooktops, stackable Axxis™ laundry, ventilation and the Benvenuto™ Built-in Fully Automatic coffee maker.

Integra Refrigeration

Highly customizable with multiple cooling and freezing units, Bosch's new modular Integra Refrigeration meets the cool storage needs of any home, while providing the ultimate in space efficiency, especially in smaller homes such as lofts, condos and apartments. Available in 11 different configurations of various width sizes -- including refrigerators, freezers, dispenser freezers, wine coolers and 36" bottom-freezers -- this system allows the builder, designer and consumer to tailor their refrigeration to their own personal preferences.

Integra's flexible, compact design makes moving and installing much easier than a conventional built-in refrigeration. Adding to the ease of installation, custom door panels can be adjusted while attached to the unit. A special hinge makes the door reversible, which is another important feature when outfitting a small space.

Integra Refrigeration excels at food preservation and its consistent temperature regulation and elevated humidity levels ensure that foods remain fresher. The MAXBRIGHT Light System™ utilizes halogen light towers and spotlights to make foods easier to see and locate, while the MARKETFRESH Cool Air System™ keeps the refrigerator door as cool as the rest of the unit -- so your milk stays as cold as items on the shelf. The unique new ACTIVECHILL™ function quickly chills the water in the dispenser, resulting in the constant availability of cold drinking water. In addition, since each unit has its own evaporator and compressor, there is no transfer of odor between the fridge and the freezer, and the built-in carbon air filter eliminates odor within the unit. As with Bosch's award-winning dishwashers and laundry, the Integra is one of the quietest refrigeration systems on the market.

Nexxt Laundry

A single push of the "green" button makes maximizing energy savings easy with the new ECOWASH™ option featured in Bosch's latest collection of award-winning Nexxt washers. Bosch also expands the Nexxt Series with the new premium 500 plus and 800 Series models, and the specialized "Jeans" and "Comforter" cleaning programs, which finally take the guess work out of washing these hard to launder items while ensuring a thorough clean without damage to the articles.

Beyond being kind to the environment and to consumers' clothing, the premium Nexxt 800 Series will be available in a new design aesthetic which brings together the popular silver finish on the door with the simplicity of a white body. Currently available in the 100, 500, 500 plus and the 800 Series, the Nexxt Collection offers a wide array of options that can fit any lifestyle.
