Independent Workshops

Get an insight into what projects we have already implemented with our partners in the independent workshops sector in Germany and worldwide.
Independent workshops are workshops that are independent of brands and manufacturers and often represent several brands.

Project: Autohaus Geisser


Partner: Rolf Schaub GmbH

MAHA first had some involvement with this project in 2015. The client, Autohaus Geisser in Karlsruhe, was very keen to have MAHA in-ground lifts in its new dealership location. MAHA’s partner, Rolf Schaub GmbH based in Mühlacker, sparked the client’s enthusiasm for MAHA lifts. The sales team, the product managers, engineers from R&D, as well as MAHA’s specialist Construction Engineering department, conducted a feasibility study on the sandy surface on site. Once approved by MAHA, the architect was instructed on how the installation boxes should be sunk into the sand base. First of all, the sandy ground had to be removed, and a base plate had to be created onto which the boxes would then be placed and installed in pre-fabricated quivers.

A geometer was then used to align them with millimetre precision, before the quivers were concreted one step at a time. In total, 26 installation boxes were precisely positioned and brought to the correct height in this way. Once the quivers had been pulled out, the foundations could finally be filled with sand and the workshop area was built around the installation boxes.

MAHA’s partner Rolf Schaub GmbH also supplied and installed the complete oil supply and disposal system, as well as the compressor and exhaust system for the new car dealership. All departments involved in this project demonstrated their competence and exceptionally strong performance, producing a really impressive overall result (which the client was more than satisfied with) in great cooperation with MAHA’s local partner despite the difficult general conditions on the sandy base. This success was instrumental in MAHA being involved in the implementation of another new build that Autohaus Geisser is planning in Heidelberg.

Project: CMV Truck & Bus


Partner: MAHA Australia Pty Ltd.

With over 1,200 employees and an annual turnover of AUD 1 billion, CMV Truck & Bus is an extensive dealer and service network for Mack Trucks, Volvo Trucks, Volvo Buses and UD Trucks.

 The company has six subsidiaries as well as ten authorised repair service partners all over Victoria. The new subsidiary in Laverton is one of Australia’s largest commercial vehicle dealers – with 105 workstations in total.

The customer had two fully-equipped brake test lanes including roller set lift, load simulation and axle play detection installed. The subsidiary also has an integrated, digital MLT 3000 headlight tester. The equipment integrated in this test lane therefore significantly exceeds the usual Australian standards. The front area of the test lane is used as a sighting station to detect problems with the suspension, the brakes or the headlights. The second test lane is located at the rear of the workshop pit.

This is where all the defects are repaired and where the test report, which gives the customer an overview of all the repairs carried out, is printed.Following implementation of the first project with CMV, which was only made possible thanks to the commitment of our former Managing Director of MAHA New Zealand, Bruce Hundley, we have received requests for further CMV subsidiaries. We are proud that we succeeded in implementing this fantastic project for our customer in Australia.
