Mahle has moved about 70 engineers into the company’s new electronics and mechatronics development center in the city of Changshu in China.
From this location, the company says it will be focusing on developing solutions for alternative drives and expanding the company’s systems expertise in electric powertrains, as well as electronics and mechatronics. Further activities will include charging solutions for electric vehicles as well as thermal-management applications for alternative drives.
Mahle founded its new electronics and mechatronics business unit at the beginning of 2020 in order to bundle its activities in this field. The company says it expects sales growth in this segment to be well into double digits in the next decade.
Mahle’s electronics and mechatronics product portfolio in the automotive sector includes electric drives, actuators, auxiliary units as well as control and power electronics.
