Mahle provides aftermarket business update, looks toward future

In a recent online address, Mahle Aftermarket provided a business update and charted its mapped out a course for the coming years. The German supplier describes itself as “resuming the growth course of the preceding years” after the market hitches caused by COVID-19.

Mahle says its focus is on four strategic areas: the digitalization of services, information offerings, and processes, the development of new business areas for workshops, and the expansion of the fields of thermal management and workshop equipment. Mahle says it will increasingly offer aftermarket solutions for alternative drives through to battery and fuel cell maintenance.

The company says it plans to invest around EUR 16 million in digitalization over the next three years. This investment, the company says, is to flow both into information services to guide workshops safely through the transformation and into the digitalization and automation of logistics processes. Touting products such as the calibration tool TechPro Digital ADAS 2.0, Mahle says it is well-positioned for a future of semi-autonomous driving.

“Our expertise as an original equipment manufacturer enables us to anticipate market and technology trends at an early stage and to offer independent workshops a growing portfolio from the Group’s strategic fields,” says Olaf Henning, corporate executive vice president and general manager for Mahle Aftermarket, said at a press conference.
