Bosch struck a deal to fully acquire its home appliance joint venture with Siemens for $3.86 billon. The venture will continue to operate under the Siemens brand, the companies said.

Bosch’s announcement is its second in just one week to buy out a joint venture from its partner.

Siemens and Bosch have been working as partners since 1967.
