The new Mahle Group tech center in Jundiai, Brazil, is defined in several rings instead of floor levels and therefore accords harmoniously with the surrounding landscape of the Japi mountains. Thus, all laboratory installations could be located in bottom floors.

The Mahle Group has opened a new tech center in Jundiai, Brazil. The newly built 16,800-m2 (180,800-ft2) complex for research and development houses laboratories and test cells. During planning, construction, and operation of the new building, severe environmental restrictions were followed as the area is situated in the environmentally protected zone of the Japi mountains. The Mahle tech center will provide research and development as well as engineering and sales departments for South America. Customers consist of local and international vehicle and engine manufacturers. Approximately 260 employees work in the tech center, mainly engineers, researchers, and qualified technicians.
