MAHLE has laid the foundation for production, research, and development centre for workshop equipment in Parma, Italy. The company responds to significant market interest for MAHLE solutions in the area of workshop equipment. The three locations of MAHLE Service Solutions will now be brought together under one roof, across an area of 15,000 square meters. In the future, the location will develop and produce equipment for the maintenance of air conditioning systems and transmissions as well as diagnostic tools and equipment for the calibration of driver assistance systems, said the company.
“The start of construction on this site is an important milestone for us and will allow us to continue offering first-class workshop solutions that give our customers a real competitive advantage,” says Olaf Henning, Corporate Executive Vice President and General Manager MAHLE Aftermarket. On behalf of MAHLE, Olaf Henning thanked the municipality of Parma for its exemplary support in the realization of the construction project.
The new location will include areas for research and development, production, and logistics, as well as training rooms and a workshop area for vehicle testing. The research and development activities in Parma will form the basis for new global product platforms and a variety of workshop solutions. MAHLE is set to move into the new location in the first quarter of 2020.
