Based in Stuttgart, Germany, Mahle GmbH is one of the largest automotive suppliers in the world. Since the 1920s, it has been famous especially for its innovative automobile pistons.


The company traces its roots to a 1920 workshop, where its founder, Hellmuth Hirth, joined others in building a two-stroke engine.


In 1927, the company produced the first controlled-expansion piston in Germany. Four years later, it introduced the world’s first aluminum ring carrier piston for diesel engines.


In 1938, the company acquired its current name and logo. Since then, it has continued to expand its product range.


Today, Mahle has plants in ten countries and employs roughly 80,000 people.


It has separate business units focused on engine systems and components, filtration and engine peripherals, thermal management systems, mechatronics and aftermarket parts.


Mahle is still best-known as a leading supplier of components for piston systems.


At Masterparts, we’re proud to supply Mahle piston rings in South Africa.
