Ihringen/Kehl, 7th October 2014. The consistent bundling of workshop equipment under Hella Gutmann within the HELLA Group goes one step further: After the integration of the HELLA workshop equipment range comprising products such as beam setters, hand lamps and battery chargers, the product line now also includes workshop products of the Hella Nussbaum Solutions GmbH for repairing and servicing AC systems and engine cooling. This portfolio comprises air conditioning service units of the model line HUSKY, as well as, special tools, accessories and comprehensive product services. On the 6th October 2014, the Hella Gutmann Group took over the remaining shares of the Hella Nussbaum Solutions GmbH from the Automotive Testing Technologies GmbH, a subsidiary of the Otto Nussbaum GmbH. The Hella Gutmann Group now holds 100% of the shares of the previous Joint Venture Hella Nussbaum Solutions. This strategic investment provides a solid basis for innovative developments in the field of air conditioning service and creates synergies with vehicle diagnostics, data and service competency, as well as, the workshop equipment range of the Hella Gutmann Group.
"The consolidation of the competencies in the area of workshop equipment in the Hella Gutmann Group enables us to provide our workshop customers and trade partners with added value", says Mr. Björn Rietschel, Managing Director of the Hella Gutmann Group. "Our customers will benefit from a combination of different competencies like research and development, a strong international sales and marketing network, as well as, customer-oriented services that will be used also for products of the air conditioning sector. Thus, we are perfectly prepared in view of the future technological developments of the automotive AC systems and their service."
