MAHLE Clevite Expands North American Product Offering

MAHLE Clevite has expanded its North American product offering to include Behr thermostats and other components for temperature regulation, as a result of the progressing acquisition by MAHLE of Behr. This extensive range of thermostats, switches and sensors for the automotive aftermarket was introduced under both the MAHLE Original and Behr brands at this year's AAPEX Show, held earlier this month in Las Vegas.

MAHLE Clevite has expanded its North American product offering to include Behr thermostats and other components for temperature regulation, as a result of the progressing acquisition by MAHLE of Behr. This extensive range of thermostats, switches and sensors for the automotive aftermarket was introduced under both the MAHLE Original and Behr brands at this year’s AAPEX Show, held earlier this month in Las Vegas.

MAHLE’s acquisition in May of the majority share in Behr and also the company Behr Thermo-tronic, a leading manufacturer of thermostats and temperature regulation systems for automotive and industrial applications, provides the MAHLE Group with the resources to offer a full line of thermostat products to the automotive aftermarket.

“Resulting from the acquisition, MAHLE Original and Behr thermostat products incorporate the development and production expertise of the Behr Group combined with the power of the MAHLE brand,” said Jon Douglas, general manager, MAHLE Aftermarket North America. “The pairing of these strong brands offers a significant benefit to customers in the automotive aftermarket who expect original equipment quality that is synonymous with the MAHLE Original and Behr brands.”

MAHLE technical experts indicate that while thermostats are designed to last for the entire service life of a vehicle and are not naturally subject to wear, a number of factors can lead to material fatigue and require replacement. Whether due to an accident or as part of repair or maintenance work done to the cooling system, thermostats should be replaced to ensure continued functionality. The slightest reduction of functionality can cause severe consequences since the thermostat is needed to regulate the engine temperature with coolant, according to the company.
