In a readership survey conducted by publishers ETM, Knorr-Bremse, the global market leader for braking systems and a leading supplier of other subsystems for rail and commercial vehicles, has won the “Best Brand” title in the Brakes category for the fourteenth time in succession.

Once a year, publishers EuroTransportMedia (ETM) invite readers of their most widely read commercial vehicle magazines in Germany, “trans aktuell”, “lastauto omnibus” and “Fernfahrer” to vote for the best brands in the industry. On the one hand, 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, while on the other it is considered an important indicator of the state of the brand’s image. This year, the readers of the three commercial vehicle magazines again voted for Knorr-Bremse in the Brakes category. This is the fourteenth time in succession that the global market leader for braking systems has won this accolade.

According to Dr. Peter Laier, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG responsible for the Commercial Vehicle Systems division: “When it comes to the development of innovative mobility and transportation technologies, Knorr-Bremse is the global leader. In the market segments that we serve, we are the undisputed number one for connected system solutions. As a result, we are ideally placed to help shape the global megatrends of urbanization, eco-efficiency, digitization and automated driving, making Knorr-Bremse the ideal sys-tems partner for its customers.”

Bernd Spies, Chairman of the Management Board of Knorr-Bremse Systeme für Nutzfahrzeuge GmbH, who stepped up to accept the award in Stuttgart, said: “We develop our products and services in close dialog with our customers and continuously adapt them to meet customer needs. This award reflects how much this expert audience appreciates the top-class products and services through which, as their preferred system partner, we aim to continue to impress them in the future.”
