HELLA Supports Workshops in the Transformation of Mobility

Hella offers product and service solutions for the independent aftermarket to successfully manage change.

Workshops are facing major challenges as mobility changes. Vehicles with electric drive, for example, require different components, services and support. The trend toward automated driving also is leading to a significant increase in complexity. As “The Workshop’s Friend” and based on its pronounced original equipment expertise, lighting and electronics specialist HELLA is positioning itself as a comprehensive solution provider in the aftermarket. Visitors to this year’s Automechanika taking place Sept. 13-17 in Frankfurt am Main can see for themselves the unique added value HELLA offers independent workshops in Hall 9.0 Stand A80.

“Systems and components in vehicles are becoming increasingly complex. This also increases the requirements for the workshops,” says Stefan van Dalen, who is responsible for HELLA’s global aftermarket activities. “As an original equipment manufacturer, HELLA is at the forefront of driving the change in mobility. At the same time, we are empowering our aftermarket partners to successfully master this transformation by offering everything from a single source: from intelligent diagnostics and calibration options to effective training, product and assembly information, and matching spare parts. This not only puts us in a unique position, but above all helps our partners in the aftermarket to cope with the increasing requirements and make everyday workshop work more efficient.”

For example, the free and freely accessible HELLA Tech World offers comprehensive information on products in the form of explanatory videos, technical information and assembly instructions. In addition, partners can register at the HELLA Academy to deepen their knowledge in practical exercises on different vehicles. Another element are the comprehensive diagnostics and calibration solutions from Hella Gutmann Solutions. 

“HELLA offers independent workshops solutions before the problem even arises. This is becoming increasingly important, especially in view of the major trend topics such as electromobility and automated driving,” said van Dalen. “The HELLA product range in the aftermarket already includes over 700 products for e-mobility. We are also very well positioned with regard to automated driving. HELLA products already cover around 60 percent of applications in driver assistance systems. And the number is still rising.”
