The BSH Hausgeräte GmbH Technology Center for Laundry Care is located in Berlin. The latest innovations in resource-saving washing machines, dryers and washer-dryers are developed here today and will soon be used in households across the globe to guarantee pristine laundry. The building itself has been designed to recycle valuable resources and it provides a perfect working environment for many highly skilled employees. “Meeting points“ are located on every floor to encourage networking and information sharing across all departments and they also ensure a relaxed workplace atmosphere – the perfect conditions for developing super-efficient washing machines and dryers. Nothing is left to chance in Europe’s most advanced Acoustic Competence Center. The soundproof room is built on springs in order to avoid even the slightest noise from outside. It’s equipped with the latest measuring instruments and the motto here is “quiet isn’t quiet enough”. In contrast, there’s plenty of action in the Virtual Reality Laboratory. The machines are first created virtually. Like in 3D cinema, the engineers wear special glasses so they can explore the machines as if they were right in front of them and even climb into the (washer) drum. Very real washing machines and driers are rigorously tried and tested in the Machine Testing Center. And it’s an endurance test with more than 1.000 machines, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! BSH continuously strives to develop resource-saving ideas, concepts and innovations. The BSH Technology Center for Laundry Care creates the washing machines of the future.
