CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX Corporation (NYSE: SPW) today announced that it has completed the sale of its SPX Service Solutions business to Robert Bosch GmbH for approximately $1.15 billion, subject to working capital adjustments.  The expected net proceeds of the acquisition are approximately $1 billion.
