New from MAHLE Aftermarket China: A/C compressors in OE quality

Shanghai, June, 2017 – MAHLE Aftermarket China is adding air conditioning compressors to its comprehensive product portfolio. Under the MAHLE Original brand, the basic range covers top passenger car applications in the Chinese domestic Market.

By end of June 2017, MAHLE Aftermarket China will launch the first A/C compressors for passenger cars of numerous OE premium brands. The launch within the Chinese domestic market will be through the existing MAHLE distribution channel. Meanwhile, MAHLE Aftermarket China will develop new channels as well. In addition, the company’s "premium program" provides products for the highest performance and quality requirements.

A/C compressors: an expanding product group

With the acquisition of Delphi Automotive PLC's thermal management division and MAHLE's newly integrated product group, A/C compressors, MAHLE has further expanded its leading position as an OEM supplier and is thus the competent technology partner in vehicle cooling and air-conditioning for all leading OEMs.

A new plant for automotive compressors was officially opened in Changshu/China in May 2017. This new MAHLE plant originates from an existing site in Suzhou. With the move to Changshu, MAHLE has seized the opportunity to also expand its production facilities; its production capacity has doubled as a result of the expansion.

Maintaining optimal cabin temperatures

As the heart of a vehicle air conditioning system, the air conditioning compressor is typically driven by a V-ribbed belt. The compressor circulates the refrigerant in the air conditioning system and – when operating properly – ensures that the optimal temperature is maintained in the cabin.

Perfect partnership: A/C compressors and cabin air filters from MAHLE

MAHLE Aftermarket offers high-quality cabin air filters to ensure that air conditioning compressors will continue to deliver top performance over a long service life. Cabin air filters protect the air conditioning system against contamination and irreparable damages. The new CareMetix® cabin filter provides even greater protection – protection you can feel – against pollen, soot, mould, bacteria, and odours.
