// Mahle and Brain Bee
The benefits of working in a strong group:

Acquiring a majority share in BRAIN BEE allows MAHLE to develop its expertise in vehicle diagnostics, emission testing, air conditioning servicing and fluid management. MAHLE Aftermarket is taking an important step towards becoming a solutions provider and significantly expanding its presence in the field of equipment and services for workshops, in particular on the European market.

Primarily in the area of diagnostics and air conditioning servicing there are many points of contact and synergies with MAHLE Service Solutions, the workshop equipment and services division of MAHLE Aftermarket Italy S.p.A.

Because of BRAIN BEE’s strong European presence, the takeover represents an important means of ensuring that the activities of MAHLE Service Solutions in the fields of vehicle diagnostics, air conditioning servicing and other workshop solutions meet the requirements of its customers even more closely, particularly in Europe. At the same time, BRAIN BEE can profit from the business success of MAHLE Service Solutions in North America.
