We burn for thermal management!

Two become one:
Behr Hella Service becomes MAHLE

Precise and robust thermal management is a prerequisite for the reliable operation of both combustion engines and electric vehicles as well as a critical factor in fuel cell technology. As a result, thermal management is a growing business area (read more about this in: Changing the climate in our cars). With MAHLE, you’ll be even better positioned to handle all tasks relating to thermal management from 2020.

MAHLE — your partner and thermal management expert

This means that from 2020, you’ll be able to get the entire thermal management product range in proven quality, all from MAHLE Aftermarket: spare parts, training, repair and maintenance information, workshop equipment, service hotline, and diagnostics. With all of this, we’re making sure you’re even better equipped for the future in terms of service and solution capabilities.

Key points at a glance:
