MAHLE in Japan
MAHLE's presence in Japan was first established in 1968 through a technical collaboration with piston-specialist Izumi Industries*. The commitment to the Japanese market has been further reinforce through gradual financial investments and later full acquisition of filtration-specialist Tennex Corporation** in 2002 and of Izumi Industries in 2003.
With a firmly-established base in Japan, MAHLE has continued to expand its network in other parts of Asia to serve the diversified needs of its customers. This network of operations includes production facilities and R&D centers. These strategically-located production facilities have enabled MAHLE to deliver quality products for both local operations and export. More importantly, the R&D centers in Asia, including two in Japan and one in Shanghai, deliver state-of-the arts engineering solutions tailored to meet customer specifications and local market needs.
