MAHLE is taking over the transmission specialist ZG-Zahnräder und Getriebe GmbH, based in Eching, near Munich/Germany. With this step, the technology group MAHLE is further developing its competence in the entire powertrain. It has been mutually agreed that the details of the agreement and the purchase price will not be disclosed.

The acquisition of the transmission specialist ZG-Zahnräder und Getriebe GmbH is significant because the trend in electric vehicles is toward integrated drive systems. This strategic move allows MAHLE to tap into additional development competence in this field, thus putting it in a position to offer its customers integrated systems solutions for the powertrain from a single source, including transmission design.

Integrated drive systems have decisive advantages over individual modules, such as the drive motor, transmission or power electronics. Their components are ideally coordinated, their construction can be more compact, and they can also be used more flexibly in different vehicle types.

ZG-Zahnräder und Getriebe GmbH is a highly innovative service provider in the field of powertrain engineering and has particular expertise in state-of-the-art gearing technology. The company was founded in 2008 as a spin-off from the Technical University of Munich. Its approximately 40 employees support automobile manufacturers and suppliers throughout the entire development process.
