Robert Bosch Inc., local flagship company of Germany’s Bosch Group, recently participated at Phil Construct 2011, an annual construction expo dedicated to the local building industry held this year at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

Phil Construct offered a venue for Bosch to showcase its new portfolio of high-performance Skil power tools and accessories designed for demanding professionals in the local construction market.

“The Philippine market has been benefitting from a boom from a variety of industries – be it export, construction or manufacturing. Bosch power tools is committed to meet these demands by introducing new and innovative tools that meet the increasing demand of the Filipino Power Tool user”, said Jam Go, Country Sales Director of Bosch Power Tools in the Philippines.

The trade show featured a roster of exciting events including a fashion show, where models sashayed down the runway, showcasing the range of new Bosch and Skil products. Guests were given a firsthand experience of a variety of Bosch tools fit for professional use -- from high-precision impact drills to portable jackhammers, to circular saws and high-pressure washers.

Another event highlight was the presence of top basketball coach and Skil power tools endorser Norman Black. Attendees engaged with the coach in a mini-basketball shooting showdown and participated in a high-octane drill challenge later that day.

“I’ve been familiar with the Bosch name since I was a little kid. I think anybody who’s into building or repairing knows that reliability is the number one thing when you talk about tools. With reliability the Bosch name has become a household name over the years,” said Norman Black.
