At its core, our work at Bosch has always been about inspiring people. Our innovations and technologies make new things possible every day. They show that there’s no limit to what human beings can achieve when they put their heart into it. At the same time, this work would not be possible without bold dreamers, ambitious inventors and ingenious enthusiasts — people who were inspired to do the extraordinary and in the process became an inspiration to others.
In this series, we celebrate some exceptional makers and doers from the Bosch community. Learn their personal stories, find out what drives them — and get inspired to follow your own dreams.
Brian Tan — Craftsman for love
Brian Tan’s life completely changed when his daughter was born with Down syndrome. She became an inspiration to him. When he couldn’t find suitable toys for her in the Philippines, he decided to build them himself.
My daughter started all of this. Because of her special needs, we came up with building things for her development.
Hu Gang — Pioneer of everyday life
Hu Gang is a truck driver in China, fulfilling his childhood dream. What makes it more special is that his vehicle is equipped with a hydrogen drive system from Bosch.

I’m not a Superman, I don’t have a cape.
