MAHLE To Acquire RTI Technologies

MAHLE To Acquire RTI Technologies

RTI Technologies specializes in the development and distribution of automotive maintenance equipment, including air conditioning service, fluid exchange and nitrogen tire inflation systems.

MAHLE has entered into a definitive agreement with Robert Bosch GmbH to acquire all assets and the related business of RTI Technologies Inc. RTI Technologies specializes in the development and distribution of automotive maintenance equipment, including air conditioning service, fluid exchange and nitrogen tire inflation systems.

Based in York, PA, RTI Technologies had sales of $14.7 million in 2011 and has 60 employees. The transaction is subject to certain customary closing conditions and is expected to close on Jan. 1, 2013.

“RTI Technologies presents a tremendous opportunity for MAHLE to expand our business into the repair shop equipment sector of the automotive aftermarket,” said Dan Moody, general manager of MAHLE’s aftermarket business for North America. “Given the long-term approach to the aftermarket as an important sales channel for MAHLE globally, this acquisition will broaden our aftermarket offerings within our strategic product and service range and make us one of the leaders in this segment in North America.

“This acquisition will also further leverage our global position as a filter manufacturer – particularly as it relates to MAHLE Original cabin air filters for light vehicle and truck air conditioning systems,” Moody added.

Established in 1990, RTI Technologies develops, assembles and sells various types of automotive maintenance equipment including air conditioning service units in North America. Bosch acquired the business in 2010. Among RTI’s strengths is the organization’s ability to provide leading solutions for all available refrigerants used in mobile air conditioning systems, MAHLE stated.

RTI Technologies currently supplies shop equipment to major original equipment manufacturers around the world. It also sells equipment under the RTI brand in the independent aftermarket. RTI Technologies as a future part of MAHLE will focus on continuous sales growth and customer service in North America as well as potential business expansion in other regions.
