Mahle Aftermarket Inc. announced that Mahle Service Solutions is now the official name for the company’s division specializing in the tool and equipment segment. The new division was announced on November 6, 2013 at AAPEX in Las Vegas. Mahle RTI, formerly RTI Technologies located in York, Pa., was purchased on January 1, 2013, and is a key component of the new division.
According to Max Dull, general manager for MAHLE Service Solutions in North America, the Mahle RTI name will transition fully under the MahleService Solutions banner at AAPEX 2014. Dull points out that the new division name will not affect the company’s brand names currently on the market. Those include Arctic Pro A/C service equipment, NitroPro nitrogen tire inflation systems and FluidPro fluid exchange systems.
"We are excited to share with the Aftermarket the new name for our tool and equipment division which is all about providing solutions to the difficult challenges that technicians face each day," said Dull. "The new name also positions us for future growth beyond our current offering of automotive maintenance equipment."
Dull said that Mahle Service Solutions is already working on expansion of this segment into new products and new markets. “Mahle has made clear its intention to be a major player in the tool and equipment industry and the actions it has initiated globally have positioned us for an exciting and strong future."
