Mahle Service Solutions has announced new partnerships with Gray and Noregon to strengthen its product portfolio of tools and equipment for the heavy-duty aftermarket.
Under the agreement with Gray, the company will produce a full line of shop equipment for Mahle Service Solutions under the banner “Mahle manufactured by Gray.” Gray Manufacturing Co. has been designing, manufacturing and selling lifting equipment since 1952. Mahle Service Solutions will begin selling the Gray manufactured equipment, which includes stands, floor jacks, vehicle lifts, fluid collection systems and other equipment, at the time of the ATA Technology and Maintenance Council Show in late February.
Mahle Service Solutions will also collaborate with vehicle diagnostic software company Noregon to introduce a new in-shop diagnostic and repair solution called TechPro HD powered by JPRO. Mahle Service Solutions previously introduced the TechPro diagnostic scan tool to the automotive aftermarket for automotive technicians and is now expanding into the heavy-duty aftermarket.
According to Terry Taylor, head of sales for Mahle Service Solutions, the two agreements will allow the company to provide medium- and heavy-duty customers with a greater selection of tool and equipment solutions to meet their needs.
“Mahle Service Solutions and our new partners recognized significant synergies in our mutual commitment to quality, customer focus and long-term planning,” said Taylor. “These shared organizational characteristics led to partnerships that will deliver the tools and equipment so the modern service provider can effectively address the needs of its customers.”
Taylor added that with the existing distribution, field sales and service organization that Mahle Service Solutions already has in place, all customers will benefit from greater access to a complete product portfolio and expanded service network. This is relevant especially to those customers serving the medium- and heavy-duty aftermarket.
