Mahle Aftermarket Inc. reports its gasket product line will be getting a new look. The gasket products will now be packaged with the distinctive blue Mahle Original logo prominently displayed. The transition to the new packaging will begin in the second half of 2016, and will be completed by March 2017.
Mahle recently gave its gasket line a new brand name – Mahle Original gaskets. These are the same products the company has sold in North America since 2007 under the Victor Reinz brand licensed to Mahle Aftermarket. The Mahle Original gasket line will continue to offer coverage for domestic, Asian, European and heavy-duty applications. The Mahle Original gasket offering includes nearly 10,000 part numbers, covering 900,000 applications with over 1,000 exclusive part numbers.
Mahle Original gasket packaging makes it easy for the purchaser to see exactly what they are buying, allowing the customer to see the contents without opening the package. This helps avoid purchasing the wrong parts, the company notes.
“Branding our gaskets as Mahle Original better communicates the Mahle commitment to OE form, fit and function,” says Jon Douglas, general manager, Mahle Aftermarket North America. “Although the brand and packaging will change, what isn’t changing is the delivery service, industry leading fill rates, complete market coverage, product support, data management, and technical expertise driven by decades of gasket development that the industry has come to expect from the Mahle Aftermarket gasket line. No other aftermarket gasket supplier even comes close.”
Mahle Aftermarket further supports sales of the Mahle Original gasket line with comprehensive aftermarket marketing support including a complete range of product flyers, technical service bulletins, and print advertising. An eLearning online training module will be available for technician education.
