Bilston, UK – 14 December 2017 - MAHLE Aftermarket has won ‘Car Supplier of Excellence’ at the highly respected IAAF Annual Award Ceremony 2017, held at its new location of the DoubleTree by Hilton, Milton Keynes on 7 December. 

One of the UK’s biggest parts specialists received the award in front of around 600 guests, with the result recognising MAHLE’s position as a leader in the industry. The outcome is particularly significant as the results were decided directly by aftermarket professionals with IAAF members voting for their preferred supplier, rating the company against a range of criteria on IAAF’s website:

MAHLE Aftermarket managing director, Jonathan Walker, said: “We’re delighted that MAHLE has received this accolade, not just from the IAAF but also our industry peers, which demonstrates that we’re a brand that garages and motor factors can trust.

“2017 has been yet another busy year for the MAHLE team and we’re delighted that our hard work has paid off.”
