PEDDERS CHOOSES MAHA
German manufactured test equipment gets the green light from Aussie-owned company
Family owned Australian business of 70 years, Pedders, has chosen 50-year-old German family owned MAHA as a preferred equipment supplier.
Under the arrangement, the worldwide supplier of German made premium workshop equipment has begun fitting its Automotive Test Lanes at Pedders’ premises.
Trial equipment was fitted at the Pedders Moorabbin location in November 2019 with a group-wide release announced at Pedders’ 70th birthday conference in February of this year.
“The MAHA test lane is absolutely the best test lane in the world. We couldn’t be the best at what we do without it,” Pedders Moorabbin’s Nick Papasergio said.
Pedders reportedly chose MAHA products as they are 100 percent German made with repeatable accuracy guaranteed from the German factory.
The Australian brake and suspension company claims that dealing with MAHA Australia is like dealing direct with the manufacturer, as a factory trained technical team supports the products.
Pedders will also install MAHA supplied two-post lifts, wheel alignment lifts, truck lifts and other suspension testing equipment.
“MAHA provides us with customised solutions in the fields of automotive brake and shock absorber testing, diagnostics and workshop fitting,” Pedders Senior Executive Product Research and Integration, Rob Davis, said.
“We have chosen MAHA Australia equipment as a preferred supplier. They provide well-thought through concepts for workshop fittings ranging from German made vehicle lifts, brake testers, suspension testing technology, modern emissions testing, 2WD/AWD dynamometers and much more.”
MAHA claims that it offers the most durable quality combined with the highest accuracy in lifting and test equipment.
“A huge part of our role at Pedders is to assist our stores in ensuring they are at the leading edge of specialist customer service and are able to deliver accurate diagnosis and offer appropriate solutions efficiently to our customers. Our people are specialists and that philosophy underpins our business,” Rob said.
“We are constantly reviewing tools we can utilise to enhance the customer experience and we take any addition to the Pedders method very seriously.
“By teaming with MAHA we are able to provide our stores with state of the art test lanes that not only provide them with excellent drive on brake and suspension testing but also allows each store to add on to the base units to provide a tailored diagnostic solution depending on their customer base. Some stores will value add and opt to upgrade to the knock detection and tread depth modules as well.
“Pedders stores are not limited to one or two vehicle segments but instead offer product across all segments. The MAHA machines have the flexibility to handle passenger cars up to commercial vehicles where we will be offering GVM upgrades.
“It is a pleasure to be partnered with a company that shares our values and prides itself on its product and its people, which is what Pedders is built on.”
