BSH Home Appliances Corporation, based in Huntington Beach, California, U.S., said today it will restructure its corporate organization to support ongoing growth.

The corporate reorganization will encompass changes in reporting structures, the addition of executives in key posts, and creation of four sales regions across the U.S. (Northeast, Southeast, Central, and West).

BSH President and CEO Franz J. Bosshard said, "Consistent with our strategic initiatives, specifically customer focus and operational excellence, the reorganization will provide more efficient business processes, enhanced support of BSH's customers, and a better positioning of the company for future growth."

The new organization takes effect on January 1, 2006. Appointments to key executive positions will be announced in coming weeks.

BSH doubled its business in the last 3 years. The company is constructing a 600,000 square-foot logistics and distribution center.

It also has offices and showrooms in Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago Illinois; Boston, Massachusetts; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and New York City, among others. BSH sells its products through distributors, independent appliance dealers, national and regional retailers, and large buying groups.
