Bosch Thermotechnology has discovered Turkey’s Best Combi Boiler Installer!

The competition for the best combi boiler technician in Turkey, which Bosch Thermotechnology introduced took place on 12 September at the Bosch Thermotechnology Innovation Centre at the Manisa factory. 

700 technicians entered the competition, the first stages of which took place between 10 July and 10 August. 20 finalists who completed the test at www.eniyikombiustası.com, which had received 3,000 visitors, took part in the final at the Innovation Centre.
