Opening of new Knorr-Bremse Center in Getafe

Offical opening of new Knorr-Bremse plant in Getafe, Madrid-Spain

On 25 June, 2008, and in the presence of their Royal Highnesses Prince felipe and Princess Letizia, Knorr-Bremse opened its new facilities in Getafe, which represent a clear commitment to technological innovation in Spain, bringing together the design and manufacture of systems for braking, air conditioning, railway vehicle doors and platform doors, as well as their maintenance.

The development of the new technological centre meant an investment of more than 23 million euros for purchasing the land, building, machinery and equipment. The site covers a surface area of 22,370 m2, with a production area of 9,000 m2 and 4,500 m2 of office space.

There are 550 direct employees, of which at least a third are formed by specialised engineers, making the facilities one of the group’s most important technological centres in the world.

The Knorr-Bremse Group is a world leader in the manufacture of braking systems for commercial and railway vehicles. For more than 100 years, the company has been a pioneer in the development, production and marketing of high technology braking systems.
