HELLA – Technology with Vision

HELLA Australia Pty Ltd was established in 1961 in Mentone, Australia, and is part of the worldwide group HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA, Lippstadt, a global, family-owned company listed on the stock exchange that has a rich history spanning over 100 years.

With global sales of € 7.0 billion, about 39,000 employees and over 125 locations in some 35 countries, Hella is a world leader in the development and manufacture of lighting technology and electronic products for the automobile industry and independent aftermarket sectors of the automotive, mining and marine industries. 

The company has one of the largest retail organizations for vehicle parts and accessories in Europe.

HELLA Australia celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2011 and this historic milestone highlights the company as one of the true pioneers of the modern Australian automotive industry. HELLA Australia services interstate customers through a network of five state sales offices nationwide. 

HELLA Australia's aftermarket portfolio includes the entire HELLA product range, the MANN Filter aftermarket filtration range, the HELLA Marine product range and Behr Hella Service for premium quality engine cooling and thermal management products.

Following the recent acquisition of all outstanding shares of Behr Hella Service (BHS) by MAHLE Aftermarket, all existing activities of BHS will be integrated into MAHLE on January 1, 2020. 

This will give MAHLE customers access to a broad portfolio of thermal management products for passenger cars and trucks, as well as agricultural vehicles and construction machines. In the future, products will be offered under the BEHR sales brand, and new products will be introduced on an ongoing basis. Hella Australia will remain the authorised national distributor. 

Hella Australia is also the sole distributor for the German based TMD Friction Group, the world's largest manufacturer of original equipment and aftermarket brake friction products. With research, development and manufacturing sites on four continents, the group has a global turnover in excess of $1.1 bn and has been developing brake friction products under the Textar brand for more than 140 years. 

As TMD Friction's flagship brand, an uncompromising approach and a multi-million-dollar annual investment in product development puts TEXTAR at the cutting-edge of braking technology.
