Durante décadas, sus componentes y sistemas también se han utilizado en las pistas de carreras del mundo y fuera de la carretera, en aplicaciones estacionarias, para maquinaria móvil, transporte ferroviario y aplicaciones marinas.

¿Qué ventajas tiene para una multinacional como MAHLE tener una fuerte presencia en España?
En primer lugar, disponer de un centro de referencia mundial de I+D con personal cualificado en electrónica e informática, una buena infraestructura y por supuesto una fuente de gran cooperación con la Universidad y Politécnica de Valencia. Así mismo, contamos con una excelente cooperación con los institutos tecnológicos en el parque de Paterna. En MAHLE Electronics disponemos de un gran soporte de las instituciones gubernamentales en Paterna, Valencia y la Comunidad Valenciana para llevar a cabo el desarrollo de la actividad estratégica y sostenible relacionada con la movilidad eléctrica. En Motilla del Palancar contamos con una organización cualificada en producción electrónica, formación profesional con cooperación con las instituciones de universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, gran disponibilidad de trabajadores y también gran soporte de las organizaciones gubernamentales locales en Motilla del Palancar, provinciales en Cuenca y regionales en Castilla-La Mancha.

¿Cuáles son los componentes que fabrican en España?
Fabricamos principalmente componentes estratégicos para el vehículo eléctrico, OBC (On Board Charger), HV PTC (Controladores de PTC para calefacción eléctrica), OBC (On Board Charger) + DCDC, E-compressors electrónicos, así como múltiples controladores para motores.

¿A qué mercados se venden las piezas fabricadas en España?
El mercado principal es Europa, pero suministramos también a Asia, Norteamérica y África.

Entre sus planes de expansión en España se encuentra una mayor presencia en la fábrica de Motilla del Palancar. ¿Cómo esperan crecer?
Desde 2017 hemos crecido de 450 a 1100 empleados en 2021 en Motilla del Palancar y el plan es continuar con una tendencia similar de crecimiento hacia 2025. En cuanto a facturación, hemos crecido de 70M€ a 135M€ en 2020, con planificación de 455M€ hasta 2025.

¿Estarán igualmente más presentes en otras plantas?
Nuestra unidad de negocio está relacionada con el vehículo eléctrico y tiene un desarrollo estratégico diferente y más rápido que otras plantas.

¿Cómo afecta al negocio de MAHLE la apuesta por el vehículo eléctrico?
 Como otros proveedores MAHLE está en un proceso de transición tecnológica y con su estrategia dual está disminuyendo la dependencia del motor de combustión rápidamente, contribuyendo a la mejora medioambiental de nuestro planeta. La dependencia actual del motor de combustión es del 55% globalmente en MAHLE. En el caso de España, es uno de los sectores estratégicos del Plan de Recuperación, Transformación y Resiliencia.

¿Alguno de sus proyectos podrá recibir ayuda de los fondos europeos?
En la actualidad hemos sido ya nominados para participar en el PERTE junto con Ford en Almussafes. También estamos en conversaciones para la participación en el PERTE en Castilla-La Mancha.

La compañía ha desarrollado un motor eléctrico sin imanes. ¿Se fabricará en España?
No está planificada esta actividad en el ámbito de nuestra unidad de negocio de MAHLE Electronics.

MAHLE ha participado en el programa de inversiones de empresas extranjeras en actividades de I+D organizado por ICEX-Invest in Spain. ¿Qué ha significado para la compañía?
Nuestra participación es muy positiva y a la vez fundamental para poder continuar con el objetivo de atraer estas actividades de desarrollo que garantizan la continuidad y el futuro de las organizaciones, particularmente en los grandes sectores industriales, como es automoción, y estratégicos, como lo es la movilidad eléctrica.

¿Cómo ha sido esa colaboración con ICEX-Invest in Spain?
Desde el inicio, la colaboración ha sido muy cercana y fluida, pero sobre todo profesional. Nos han ayudado durante todo el proceso para resolver conjuntamente cualquier obstáculo, participando en revisión de nuestras instalaciones confirmando el potencial tecnológico del que disponemos como proveedor clave en desarrollo y fabricación de aplicaciones electrónicas de potencia para el vehículo eléctrico.

A pocos días de cerrar el año ¿Cómo esperan la facturación?
En el año 2021 y considerando todas las dificultades de disponibilidad de materiales para fabricación que afectan a todo el mundo y especialmente al sector de automoción, nuestra previsión actual es conseguir aproximadamente 200M€ de facturación, lo cual significa un crecimiento del 50% con respecto al año anterior.
