MAHLE in Japan

The commitment to the Japanese market has been further reinforce through gradual financial investments and later full acquisition of filter-specialist Tennex Corporation (currently, MAHLE Filter Systems Japan Corporation) in 2002 and of Izumi Industries in 2003. MAHLE’s product portfolio was expanded into vehicle air conditioning and engine cooling through MAHLE Behr in fall of 2013 and further expanded through acquisition of Delphi Thermal in July 2015.
