Chassis Brakes International Expands Its German Footprint 

The company has doubled the size of its German sales and application engineering center.

Chassis Brakes International is opening a new 5,000-square-meter (about 54,000-square-foot) sales and application engineering center in Heilbronn, Germany.

The new facility includes 4,000 square meters (43,000 square feet) for product-development activities and 1,000 square meters (around 10,800 square feet) of office space on three levels. The new Heilbronn technical center is more than twice the size of the company’s previous facility in nearby Abstatt.

“Our move from Abstatt has been driven by the significant growth of our group in Germany and lays the groundwork for further expansion in the future,” said the company’s Global CEO, Thomas Wuensche.

Bernd Schemer, board chairman for the company’s German operations and global vice president of sales, engineering and project management, added. “We have created a state-of-the-art facility in Heilbronn, 80 percent of which is dedicated to engineering activities, including extended capacities and capabilities for vehicle testing and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), both on a bench and vehicle level. In addition, we are prepared to address future trends in electric and autonomous vehicle technology.”

Chassis Brakes International, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of automotive foundation brake systems and components, is developing advanced braking systems especially designed for electric and autonomous vehicles. Considered a leading developer of next-generation “dry” brake systems, the company recently opened a technology center to focus on brake-by-wire technology in Eindhoven, Netherlands, which also serves as the group’s corporate headquarters.

The company has a balanced customer portfolio that includes all of the world’s major European carmakers, as well as leading auto manufacturers in North America and the Asia Pacific region. They include Peugeot, Citroen, Toyota, Ford, Renault, Nissan, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Volkswagen, Honda, Fiat, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo, Geely, GAC, Maruti Suzuki, Mahindra & Mahindra and Tata.
