Bos develops and delivers machines, preferably with an innovative edge, for the professional user in ditch and roadside maintenance and earthmoving and land levelling. In doing so, we strive to offer the client a total solution because they are the ones who need to earn their living with it. And innovative in this context means: not standard but a bit more, a bit different, a bit new. That’s the challenge. And that, in short, is the Bos philosophy.

Our biggest clients come from the contracting industry. For example, the construction of roads or sports fields. The machines we deliver are soil tillage equipment and bulldozers. We also deliver machines for ditch and roadside maintenance, bought by municipalities or water boards, but mostly by contractors and the contracting industry.
