Our MAHLE Culture

Thinking beyond borders and promoting ideas for the future - together: That is our claim. As a supplier to the automotive industry, we are one of the frontrunners worldwide. Tradition and innovation characterize our company, while sustainability and responsibility characterize our actions. Employees are our top priority because they are our strength.

Our values create a framework for a respectful cooperation. At the same time, they form the foundation for technological excellence.

Individual Responsibility

As an employee, you actively contribute to the company's success and assume responsibility. Our leadership culture and flat hierarchies demand and promote independent action. The resulting freedom to co-design and a level of collegial cooperation are essential if we are to achieve joint success.



International projects are part of our everyday life. Direct exchanges with country subsidiaries and networked thinking and acting are the keys to our success. This means that it is obvious that we need to prepare our employees for the tasks ahead of them by offering language courses, inter-cultural training or professional coaching.


We make no distinctions in terms of gender, origin, religion, disability, age, sexual orientation or identity. Every employee receives the same level of appreciation. This is because a variety of different perspectives, experiences and strengths make up the overall success of our company.

In terms of Generation Management, we use the positive effects created by cooperations between different age groups. As part of gender diversity, we promote women and men alike.

Variety of Life at MAHLE.


Our employees are experts when it comes to technology. As a top player, we have the widest product portfolio in the industry. Being part of a worldwide network, we develop new solutions for modern mobility. Further training and knowledge transfer guarantee that our employees can exploit their potential in a targeted manner and develop themselves.

With your expertise, your ideas and your achievements, you can help strengthen existing business areas and drive innovation.


We value tradition and we value our company’s size. The feeling of a family business combined with the international reach of a major corporation creates an appreciative working atmosphere and a sense of security.

Strategic long-term thinking and acting constitute an integral part of our corporate philosophy. We also have a sense of obligation towards our employees. Together with you, we can develop your individual career path - one that would be both future-orientated and sustainable.

Corinna Malej, Head of Human Resources

In my point of view MAHLE stands for continuous development in all areas, especially in product development and process optimization. Therefore it is very important to me to encourage our employees as well as support individual strengths and talents. As my superiors always encourage me, I got the opportunity to be a young woman in the highest management level leadership position.
