MAHLE Plans Tools & Equipment Division

Nov 14, 2013

Farmington Hills, Mich.-based MAHLE Clevite recently outlined plans for a new division specializing in the aftermarket tool and equipment segment.

Max Dull, who was named manager of the new division, said the company will announce a new name for the sector during the first quarter of 2014, according to a press release.

“We are in the process of putting together an exciting strategic plan for the division,” Dull said. “Not only will we introduce new products and product enhancements to our current product lines, we have already begun work on new products that we plan to introduce in late 2014.”

The foundation of the company’s new sector is MAHLE Clevite’s RTI division, which specializes in the development and distribution of automotive maintenance equipment, including air conditioning service, fluid exchange and nitrogen tire inflation systems, the press release noted.

The RTI division is formerly RTI Technologies, a company MAHLE acquired earlier this year.

“The quality of our products is unparalleled,” Dull said. “And we recognize that technicians will pay for quality. With the quality built into our machines, there is less of a chance for vehicle comebacks, because the job was done right the first time.”
