LANDSKRONA, Sweden — Haldex has entered an agreement with Schmitz Cargobull, a leading trailer manufacturer in Europe, for the supply of ModulT disc brakes.

The Haldex ModulT program is an innovative air disc brake platform developed specifically to meet increased customer demands on performance, robustness, service up-time, weight and total cost of ownership. The agreement includes the supply of both 22-inch and 19-inch ModulT versions.

The deal is an important milestone to continue to grow in this segment, and further strengthens Haldex already strong market position for air disc brakes for Trailers in Europe.

This is an important and strategic deal for Haldex but based on estimated order value it is not significant in relation to total sales for the Haldex Group.

“We are proud to have extended our partnership with this customer,” said Stephan Kulle, Executive Vice President EMEA. “Supplying the ModulT disc brakes adds a new dimension to our long-standing relationship.”
