Any counterfeiters will be exposed!
Our customers—quite rightly—choose MAHLE for specific reasons: our products are subject to strict quality standards and are thoroughly tested! The success we have achieved with this strategy is reflected in the number of other manufacturers who consistently want to capitalize on the quality MAHLE stands for and counterfeit our logo.
To put a stop to this abuse, we carried out a joint operation with customs and police against product piracy at Automechanika 2016. Counterfeit MAHLE parts were found at 14 stands, and penalties totaling more than EUR 20,000 were imposed! We are delighted with this huge success and will continue to do all we can to ensure that whenever MAHLE is on the packaging, you will find MAHLE quality inside!
