Pressrelease [PDF; 98 KB]
Stuttgart, 11 August 2014 – This year’s Automechanika in Frankfurt will be the scene of several debuts for MAHLE Aftermarket: the MAHLE business unit specialising in spare parts will introduce the new MAHLE Service Solutions division for the first time from 16 to 20 September. This new division expands MAHLE Aftermarket’s comprehensive product range to include repair shop equipment. Other highlights on display this year in Hall 3.0 at stands A11 and A20 for the first time include complete solutions from MAHLE for air management, oil management, piston systems and cylinder components, and engine cooling. This is perfect proof of the leading role of MAHLE in the powertrain and thermal management; no other systems supplier has more comprehensive knowledge in this field.
With the MAHLE Service Solutions division, MAHLE Aftermarket is able to meet the growing requirements for service and maintenance. Vehicles today have increasingly complex systems to improve efficiency, comfort, and safety. Consequently, repair shops are seeing growing demand for particularly high-performance, practical repair shop service units as well as a comprehensive range of services to allow them to carry out any necessary work professionally and efficiently. MAHLE Service Solutions offers a comprehensive portfolio of products and services from a single source—specifically for maintenance of HVAC systems, replacement of fluids, and nitrogen tyre filling systems to maintain a constant tyre pressure. The portfolio is rounded off by a package of services with special training, a hotline, technical documentation, and knowledge-based troubleshooting.
Highly innovative research and development for original equipment guarantees high-quality products for the automotive equipment market. MAHLE combines comprehensive advice and systems competence with forward-looking concepts in the areas of air and oil management, piston systems and cylinder components, and engine cooling, which can also be seen at the Automechanika. With all technologies, the consistent focus is on reducing fuel consumption and therefore CO2 emissions.
MAHLE is the globally leading manufacturer of components and systems for the internal combustion engine and its peripherals as well as vehicle air conditioning and engine cooling. In 2014, some 64,000 employees at 140 production locations and ten major research and development centres are expected to generate sales of around ten billion euros.
