LANDSKRONA, Sweden — Haldex has signed a long-term agreement with KRONE Commercial Vehicle Group, a leading trailer manufacturer, for the supply of the fourth-generation electronic brake system (EBS) platform for trailers.

The new generation EBS, the EB+4.0, brings parking brake control into electronic management and offers a new modular and customizable approach to customer-specific functions.

This agreement extends a long existing partnership with KRONE and is an important step to expand Haldex’s market share within this segment. With this product offer, Haldex contributes to improved road safety and an increased level of digitalization of the industry.

As a multi-voltage platform that can be used as both ABS and EBS, and with a significant weight reduction and an estimated CO2 footprint reduction of up to 30 percent compared to the previous generation, this new platform is aligned to market needs.

“With this agreement, Haldex has taken a step forward to extend our position within the trailer market. Our collaboration with KRONE is developing at a new promising stage, which strengthens the confidence in our ability to continue innovating to meet market needs and exceed customer expectations,” said Stephan Kulle, Executive Vice President EMEA.
