Global technology firm MAHLE, which is particularly known for its expertise in the mobility component space, has notched the unique feat of touching the century mark. December 1, 2020, marks the 100th anniversary of the company’s founding and it was on that day that the foundation stone for today’s MAHLE Group was laid in Stuttgart. The course for this success was charted by the brothers Ernst and Hermann Mahle, whose technological pioneering spirit is something the company is still renowned for today.
MAHLE is now broadly positioned in the areas of powertrain technology and thermal management with a clear focus on future topics relating to mobility. “The piston is part of our history. But today MAHLE is much more than that: with our competence in future technologies, we’re ideally positioned to play an active role in shaping the sustainable mobility of the future,” says Dr. Jörg Stratmann, Chairman of the MAHLE Management Board and CEO. “Over the past 100 years, MAHLE has undergone continuous development, always with the aim of providing important technological impetus and being a strong partner to its customers.”
Since 1920, MAHLE has transformed itself from a small piston forge in the Bad Cannstatt district of Stuttgart into a global technology group with a unique Portfolio. The company has steadily opened up numerous new product areas and markets through organic growth as well as acquisitions. Today, the technology group offers not only engine components and filtration products but also power electronics and control units, electric motors, electric auxiliaries, software, thermal management products as well as expertise in materials, production, and 3D printing technologies.
