MAHLE is a leading international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry as well as a pioneer and technology driver for the mobility of the future. The MAHLE Group is committed to making transportation more efficient, more environmentally friendly, and more comfortable by continuously optimizing the combustion engine, driving forward the use of alternative fuels, and laying the foundation for the widespread acceptance and worldwide introduction of e-mobility.
Based on a broad systems competence consisting of Engine Systems and Components, Filtration, and Thermal Management, the group’s product portfolio addresses all the crucial issues relating to the powertrain and air conditioning technology. Thanks to its expertise in electric and electronic components and systems, MAHLE can thus also offer integrated system solutions for e-mobility. MAHLE products are fitted in at least every second vehicle worldwide. For decades, MAHLE components and systems have also been used on the world’s racetracks and off the road—in stationary applications, for mobile machinery, rail transport, as well as marine applications.
In 2017, the group generated sales of approximately EUR 12.8 billion with around 78,000 employees and is represented in more than 30 countries with 170 production locations. At 16 major research and development centers in Germany, Great Britain, Luxembourg, Spain, Slovenia, the USA, Brazil, Japan, China, and India, about 6,100 development engineers and technicians are working on innovative solutions for the mobility of the future.
The company was founded by Hermann and Dr. Ernst Mahle in 1920. Today, 99.9 percent of the shares are owned by the MAHLE Foundation. This guarantees that the group remains independent. Every year, the MAHLE Foundation receives a distribution of profits, which is intended to support projects in the areas of health care and nursing, agriculture and nutrition, education and training, as well as the arts and culture.
