MAHLE AFTERMARKET ACQUIRES BEHR HELLA SERVICE

Mahle Aftermarket has announced the acquisition of automotive thermal management product supplier Behr Hella Service (BHS) for an undisclosed amount.

The acquisition will see all existing BHS activities transfer to Mahle on January 1st 2020, bringing a broad range of thermal management products to Mahle’s portfolio. The products will cover passenger vehicles as well as agricultural and construction vehicles.

The old BHS part numbers can still be used by current customers to order products even after 1st January 2020. Mahle part numbers will be implemented in parallel.

In a statement, Mahle noted the importance of thermal management products in the operation of electric vehicles. Olaf Henning, Corporate Executive Vice President and General Manager of Mahle Aftermarket, said: “E-mobility will present workshops in particular with new challenges in the medium term.

“We can now offer them targeted support with the expertise from our OEM business and provide the right solutions – by identifying a component with the correct diagnostic systems and delivering technical training and information on repairs and maintenance,” he concluded.
