MAHLE strengthens filter product strategy with new appointment

Date: Wednesday 26 October 2022

MAHLE Aftermarket has strengthened its team with the appointment of Tobias Lowen as category manager for filtration.

Lowen’s appointment strengthens MAHLE’s continued push for developing OE-quality, reliable filter products for the automotive aftermarket, and communicating its product portfolio to customers across the UK.

Lowen, who joins MAHLE from similar roles at Schaeffler Aftermarket and Jaguar Land Rover, will be responsible for managing MAHLE’s filter business with a focus on go-to-market strategy, as well as developing the tier one aftermarket supplier’s value proposition to customers.

Lowen said:

“It’s a great opportunity to join the team at MAHLE and continue promoting the message of quality and versatility in the aftermarket. There’s a real agility about the company and it has carved a great reputation amongst our valued customers for high-quality products and valued technical support.
“I’m excited to work on developing the strategy for marketing our filtration products, whilst navigating the challenges of the current economic environment, which bring with them material price increases and supply chain disruptions.”

MAHLE sets itself apart from its competitors as a tier-one supplier to original equipment manufacturers by offering the same, high-quality parts to the aftermarket as OEMs do. With the Service Solutions business, MAHLE supplies tools and equipment for vehicle testing, diagnostics, and maintenance.

Andy Lees, UK general manager at MAHLE Aftermarket said:

“Tobias brings many years of valuable category management experience to the company. It will be great to see him build levels of service within our filter product offering to customers as a trusted advisor rather than just a supplier. Tobias will also work on strengthening MAHLE’s footprint in the heavy-duty sector, so it’s an exciting time for him to join.”
