16,000 square meters; more than 30,000 products; $25 million investment
Tuesday June 21, 2016 – Usually the doors of the state-of-the-art factory are closed for visitors, but today Knorr Bremse opened their factory doors in Granville (West Sydney) for customers, press and replacement parts experts of Whites Diesels. The Knorr Bremse experts showed us their production and test activities for rail and commercial vehicle brake components, IFE-Tebel door systems, and Sigma Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) systems. In the commercial vehicle systems sector, the Knorr Bremse product range includes complete braking systems with Driver Assistance System solutions, as well as powertrain-related solutions and transmission control systems for enhanced energy efficiency and fuel economy.
The site is the provider for OE and aftermarket services for brakes, doors and HVAC in Australia. In addition the warehouse stocks in excess of more than 30,000 products to support the diverse range of rail and commercial vehicles. The Knorr Bremse Factory was built in 2013 and has been designed in line with the latest environmental and industrial health & safety findings. The facility provides almost 16,000 square meters of office and production space. The plant provides work for around 260 employees. The facilities in Granville represent a total investment of approximately €25 million.
We would like to thank Joseph Stapleton, Sales and Marketing Manager and Adam Magnoli, Product and Supply Manager for organizing and opening the doors for the attendees. We also want to thank Ronnie John, Application & Quality Engineer and Kieran Kinselle, Distribution Manager for their explanation in the factory.
