German auto parts manufacturer MAHLE and US-based battery service company Midtronics will jointly develop service equipment. The goal is to provide holistic battery diagnostics and maintenance from a single source over the life cycle of batteries and vehicles.
MAHLE says it brings to the partnership its expertise in refrigerant service, ADAS calibration, and battery and vehicle diagnostics. Midtronics contributes technology in low- and high-voltage battery monitoring, inspection, diagnostics and service.
“Because of the speed of change in battery and electric vehicle technology, no company in the automotive service world is ready. This collaboration makes it faster and easier for the aftermarket to transition to electric vehicle service,” said Will Sampson, President of Midtronics.
