MAHLE Aftermarket introduces new alternators and starter motors for heavy commercial vehicles

Stuttgart, July 20th, 2017 – Devised for reliable use even under the toughest conditions, MAHLE Aftermarket introduces a broad new program of starter motors and alternators for heavy commercial vehicles. The program fulfils the tough OE specifications for truck components.

With MAHLE being an experienced and well-known OE manufacturer of starter motors and alternators for non-road mobile machinery, MAHLE Aftermarket is currently expanding its existing starter and alternator range for the heavy commercial vehicle segment. The new products comprise 26 starter motors and 23 alternators for the ten biggest manufacturers of heavy commercial vehicles.

“Our high-performance starter motors and alternators are ideally suited for the high demands placed on trucks with regards to their service life,” says Olaf Henning, Managing Director of MAHLE Aftermarket GmbH. The new starter motors and alternators will be distributed under the MAHLE Original brand. “We are going to extend our portfolio continually,” explains Olaf Henning. “Coverage of vehicles in operation is expected to reach about 80% for the ten biggest manufacturers.”

Salt spray, humidity, water, dust, mud, vibrations, heat, cold, and aggressive fluids: the list of challenges starter motors and alternators are facing is long. And yet the MAHLE products function reliably and meet the demanding OE specifications. All starter motors and alternators are designed for long-life operation – even under harsh operating conditions. Their design fulfils international guidelines and standards – including the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive.
