Bospi is the Swiss manufacturer of drilling equipment and tools for applications in general construction and geothermal wells. Drilling companies in Switzerland and abroad rely on the quality of our products.
Since the launch of Bospi Ltd in 1973 we base our daily business on a considerable inventory of standard and semi-finished parts for the geological drilling industry. This allows us to respond with a high flexibility and within short lead-times to the requirements of our customers.
We enhance our offer by reselling programs of well known suppliers, of course including spare parts and service.
For all parts whether of own manufacturing or from third parties, we apply the highest quality standards. This includes using qualified raw materials and up to date production on CNC equipped machining and welding systems.
The availability of high grade steel is an important advantage. Our high investments in raw material inventory allow us to cope with tight timeframes even for special customer builds.
With modern design tools our qualified staff is ready to develop solutions for challenges deriving from new drilling techniques.
1973 Launch of Bospi Ltd. by the German business partners Günter Böckel and Dieter Spielhoff.
1975 Konrad Bürki joins the company as young clerk. In this time Bospi is a sales company for the drilling products of the German founders and for pvc casings and
screens from Stüwa, Germany.
1977 In a difficult economic period Konrad Bürki takes over the responsibility for the company.
1978 The company is moved to Murgenthal. The production company BSB Mechanik Ltd is founded and the manufacturing capacity evolves step by step. René Nadalet joins as a manufacturing specialist. Soon enough the company runs out of space. The capacity is raised by acquisition of new terrain. For legal reasons all property of land and buildings is transferred to NB Technik Ltd.
1984 Acquisition of the first big CNC lathe, which offers major advantages in machining steel tubes and other long tubular parts. In the following years much attention is given in keeping the machinery up to date.
1985 Death of founder Günter Böckel. His shares in Bospi Ltd are taken over by Dieter Spielhoff and Konrad Bürki.
1998 Konrad Bürki buys the shares of Dieter Spielhoff. In the same year René Nadalet becomes partner of BSB Mechanik Ltd.
2002 Acquisition of more terrain. In view of a more efficient manufacturing it is decided to demolish a part of the old buildings and to invest in a new production and administration centre. After 20 years in sometimes precarious infrastructure Bospi wants to set-up something special. Based on a vision of Konrad Bürki and under the lead of René Nadalet a modern structure takes shape. The spaceship-like building becomes the heart of the company.
2007 The last years brought an ongoing increase in turnover. Structural, technical and economic reasons drive most customers to decrease their own inventories of drilling equipment. Thus the necessity of flexibility and agility on side of the suppliers is a must. Bospi Ltd with its traditionally high inventory on steel and tools can act as
as efficient and flexible partner. Especially in the expanding market of geothermal drilling for heating, Bospi Ltd is partner of almost all drilling companies in Switzerland. In nearby Germany and Austria Bospi sells its products through qualified partners in the drilling business.
2009 Bospi invests in a new drill rod production unit. The commissioning of a Thompson friction welder is the last step in Bospi's vertical integration. With the available welding capacity and the full control of all quality aspects, Bospi is ready to even better serve the market requirements.
