  • Behr Hella Service (BHS) to be taken over by MAHLE Aftermarket on January 1, 2020
  • Customers benefit from a broad, continuously growing thermal management portfolio for conventional and electrically powered vehicles

Stuttgart/Germany, May 20, 2019 – Following the acquisition of the entire shareholding in Behr Hella Service (BHS) by MAHLE Aftermarket, all existing activities of BHS will be transferred to MAHLE on January 1, 2020. For MAHLE customers, this means access to a broad portfolio of thermal management products for passenger cars and trucks as well as agricultural vehicles and construction machines. In the future, products will be offered under the BEHR sales brand and the portfolio continuously expanded.
MAHLE is thereby providing its customers with forward-looking support in the increasingly important market of e-mobility. Thermal management is, after all, a central prerequisite for the reliable operation of electrically powered vehicles, as it significantly influences efficiency and thus supports CO2 reduction and cleanliness. MAHLE Aftermarket provides the right spare parts, diagnostic systems, training, and repair and maintenance information, boosting its profile as a systems provider.
“As an OEM, MAHLE has enormous expertise in the area of thermal management, and now our customers in the aftermarket business segment will also see increased benefits,” explains Olaf Henning, Corporate Executive Vice President and General Manager MAHLE Aftermarket. “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,” Henning continues.
Current customers of BHS can order the products using familiar part numbers, even after January 1, 2020. They will remain in place throughout a transition period, while MAHLE part numbers are implemented in parallel.
