- Knorr-Bremse TruckServices expands engine air management portfolio
- Customers benefit from proven service solutions
- Almost all turbochargers also available as EconX® products
Knorr-Bremse, the global market leader for braking systems and a leading supplier of other rail and commercial vehicle subsystems, is expanding its product portfolio for the aftermarket. From January 2019, through the usual Knorr-Bremse TruckServices channels, customers can order turbochargers for vehicles from all the major OEM brands and benefit from a comprehensive range of services.
According to Dr. Peter Laier, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG and responsible for the Commercial Vehicle Systems division: “Engine air management is key to ensuring low real-world driving emissions for diesel vehicles in longdistance operation. Our exhaust valves offer precision control of engine air circulation and reflect Knorr-Bremse’s extensive experience in this field. Now, by expanding our aftermarket portfolio to include turbochargers, we are taking this expertise a logical step further.”
Turbochargers harness the exhaust energy to force compressed outside air into the combustion chamber. This boosts the engine output and makes for cleaner combustion.
Extensive service concept
Knorr-Bremse is offering turbochargers from the leading original equipment suppliers. They will be supplied in the familiar Knorr-Bremse packaging and in most cases with the corresponding mounting kit. As well as offering high standards of technical performance, the tur-bochargers are also backed by the comprehensive Knorr-Bremse service concept, providing a highly attractive overall package for customers.
Knorr-Bremse’s extensive logistics network will ensure fast and reliable supply, while a returns system for used turbochargers will be integrated into the existing core management program. All products are also backed by the highquality range of aftermarket services offered by TruckServices, including regularly updated multilingual product documentation for turbochargers. Customer contact is handled by local sales teams and by the sales support and technical hotline. The existing training program will also be extended to cover turbochargers.
EconX turbochargers for value-based repairs
In line with the Knorr-Bremse TruckServices Lifetime Efficiency principle, almost all turbochargers will also be available as remanufactured EconX products, allowing Knorr-Bremse to offer sustainable, cost-efficient repair solutions for older vehicles too.
