MORE MECHATRONICS AT MAHLE
It’s a simple formula: more electrification of the auxiliary components = lower fuel consumption + fewer emissions! And that’s precisely why we at MAHLE have been a driving force behind this trend for many years. Increasing electrification, however, also places high demands on mechatronic components such as starter motors, alternators, and electric motors. With MAHLE Letrika, we have become even better in this area. Since January 2016, MAHLE Aftermarket has been distributing the components for agricultural and construction machinery under the MAHLE Original brand.
At the same time, we have been able to expand our service: “Our aftermarket customers will also benefit from MAHLE Letrika’s integration in the MAHLE Group. The new group subsidiary is synonymous with long-standing product and service know-how in agricultural and construction machinery. With two benefits: first, an expanded product portfolio and, second, additional technical information and support, repair instructions, and training,” explains Olaf Henning, Member of the MAHLE Management Committee and Managing Director of MAHLE Aftermarket GmbH. “In the long term, our expertise with regard to engine components, filters, and turbochargers for trucks will complement MAHLE Letrika’s competence wonderfully.”
MORE SUPPORT, MORE SERVICE, MORE SYSTEMS
For trade and repair shops, that means access to a product portfolio that encompasses the agricultural and construction machinery segment. Everything from a single source in the usual original equipment quality! In the future, dealerships and repair shops will benefit from the extensive product and service expertise of the MAHLE Letrika specialists, with the added bonus of comprehensive technical support.
Long-time Letrika customers will get twice the benefit: The merger will give them access to the global capabilities of the MAHLE logistics network and therefore to the rapid availability of components and systems. And at the same time, they will keep their usual sales contacts at Letrika—ensuring that everything will continue as seamlessly as possible.
