During the past years, the amount of electronics present in vehicles has been steadily on the increase. This poses a special challenge to workshops. For in order to be able to repair and service vehicles, car mechanics increasingly need to have know-how in the areas of electronics and diagnosis, in addition to their usual professional abilities. As a “workshop’s friend”, the lighting and electronics specialist HELLA competently supports its clients throughout. “We are more than a mere supplier. Thanks to our original equipment competencies and 60 years of experience in the area of electronics, we provide independent workshops with powerful expert knowledge so that they can become quicker and more profitable”, says Jörg Harjes, Head of Marketing Aftermarket at HELLA.

The automotive parts supplier provides workshops with a range of comprehensive and strong electronics products, amongst other things. In the area of oil level sensors, HELLA is a market leader. The company has been producing intelligent battery sensors for over 15 years. Due to the increasing requirements, HELLA not only continuously develops its sensors but also creates new technologies. One example is the specifically developed CIPOS® technology. It is sensitive with regard to electromagnetic disturbance sources and ensures accurate position measurements in e.g. pedal sensors. The technology has proved itself on the market. This has been shown by the more than 100 million sold CIPOS® sensors in the 2015/2016 business year alone.

A strong electronics program, however, only serves as one building block for providing the best possible customer service. “The car must be back on the road within the shortest possible period. That’s why HELLA supports independent workshops along the entire repair process”, says Harjes. With its Hella Gutmann brand for example, HELLA provides professional diagnosis units to this end, as well as one of the largest diagnosis and repair databases in the world, online repair aids and a technical hotline. With this type of support, the car will then surely return the roads very soon.
