MUNICH – One of the many ways Knorr-Bremse, the global market leader for braking systems and other rail and commercial vehicle (CV) systems, is helping to make road transportation safer and more efficient is by supplying systems for digital and data-driven aftermarket solutions.

In June 2022, aiming to expand the company’s presence in the field of digital, data-driven aftermarket solutions, Knorr-Bremse signed an agreement to acquire a majority stake in Spanish company COJALI S.L., an international developer and manufacturer of diagnostic systems for commercial and other types of vehicles.

The acquisition is currently under review by the relevant competition authorities.

Under the Jaltest brand, Cojali is already a global supplier of multi-brand diagnostic solutions for commercial vehicles. Now Knorr-Bremse’s customers will also benefit from them, confirms Alexander Wagner, Vice President Aftermarket/TruckServices EMEA at Knorr-Bremse Commercial Vehicle Systems:

“We’re already supporting our customers with workshop solutions for precise vehicle component diagnostics, as well as assistance with troubleshooting. To further streamline workshop efficiency, we plan to integrate Knorr-Bremse’s NEO workshop diagnostics solution into Jaltest and include it in the range of services offered by Jaltest. In the medium term, we’re planning to steadily expand our range of brand- and system-independent diagnostics solutions and establish them even more firmly in the market under the Jaltest brand for workshops, dealers and fleets.”

A Jaltest-integrated NEO diagnostics solution will make workshops even more efficient by allowing workshops that already use Jaltest diagnostics to add Knorr-Bremse’s diagnostics solution as required, further enhancing their functionality. With this additional diagnostics expertise, based on Knorr-Bremse’s extensive OE know-how, workshops and fleet operators will be able to analyze the status of all Knorr-Bremse vehicle components quickly and accurately, whilst also enjoying comprehensive troubleshooting support.
