Bosch to acquire motorsport tech firm MoTec

Bosch plans to acquire the MoTeC Group, headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. MoTeC offers a wide range of motorsports technology for the customer racing market. The company specialises in the development, manufacture, and distribution of motorsport technology for teams in numerous racing series and is well established in this market.

Contracts for the planned acquisition were signed by Bosch and the MoTeC Group in June 2022. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

In organisational terms, MoTeC will become an integral part of Bosch Motorsport, a business unit of Bosch Engineering GmbH, a 100% Bosch subsidiary based in Abstatt, Germany.

As an engineering service provider, Bosch Engineering offers customised development and consulting services in the automotive and motorsport sectors. With its wide range of motorsports technology, MoTeC’s portfolio includes vehicle and engine control units, displays, data loggers and onboard power supply control units for conventional as well as electrified racing series. The company serves its customers in Australia, Asia-Pacific, Europe, USA and Japan through a global network of around 250 dealers.

With the acquisition of the MoTeC Group, Bosch Motorsport is extending its product portfolio and distribution to serve additional racing series as well as the racer market in the future. In addition, Bosch Motorsport is expanding its sales network and market presence primarily in the Asia-Pacific region, USA and the UK. “With the MoTeC Group’s many years of experience and comprehensive expertise, as well as its worldwide dealer network, we are strengthening our position in motorsports and ideally complementing our product portfolio,” says Dr. Klaus Boettcher, Vice President Bosch Motorsport.

The MoTeC Group employs 54 people worldwide between its headquarters and a sales and technical customer service office in Banbury (UK). The MoTeC Group’s business operations will be continued in future as a separate legal entity, under its own brand.
