For the eleventh time in succession, Knorr-Bremse won the accolade of “Best Brand in the Commercial Vehicle Industry” in the “brakes” category. Before an audience of prominent representatives of the German commercial vehicle industry, Bernd Spies, Chairman of the Management Board of Knorr-Bremse’s Commercial Vehicle Systems division, stepped up to receive the award at the Wagenhallen event location in Stuttgart.
“The fact that an expert audience continues to appreciate and honor our performance in this way is a great source of motivation for us every year to do even better,” said Spies. “We are already looking forward to welcoming our customers to the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show and the Automechanika fair in September. These trade fairs present a great opportunity for us to showcase the full breadth of applications covered by our commercial vehicle portfolio and offer a glimpse of what the future holds in terms of the next steps in driver assistance systems and automated driving. These advances will offer even greater safety and reduce operating costs throughout the vehicle life cycle, leading to another marked increase in customer benefits. And with our planned entry to the steering business, in the future we will also be able to offer our customers even more fully integrated system solutions.”
Over 9,000 readers of three commercial vehicle magazines published by EuroTransportMedia (ETM) took up the invitation to vote for the best commercial vehicles and brands in the industry. An endorsement from this expert audience is widely respected as a seal of quality for the safety and reliability of the winning brands and products, as well as being an important indicator of the state of the brand’s image.
