The Group

Knorr-Bremse has pursued a single mission for over 110 years: to make mobility on roads and railways safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly. Today the Knorr-Bremse Group, based in Munich, is the world’s leading manufacturer of braking systems and a leading supplier of safety-critical sub-systems for rail and commercial vehicles.

French location - Tinqueux

Founded in 1972, Knorr-Bremse Systèmes Ferroviaires France is the Group's French subsidiary for the railway branch.

The subsidiary employs 150 people, generates a turnover of 64 million euros and has 3 main fields of activity: the supply of braking, door and air conditioning systems, as well as a service branch for spare parts, overhaul and maintenance activities. Its mission is thus to design, sell and maintain, in France and in French-speaking Africa, the equipment and associated services throughout the life of railway equipment, whatever it may be (tramway, metro, regional train, suburban train, high-speed train, passenger car, wagon). The priorities for that end are safety, passenger comfort and customer satisfaction. The company also holds certifications in the fields of quality, health, safety and environment.

Regarding environment issues, the Group has achieved a key climate milestone : carbon neutrality across all Group sites. Operations at the Group’s global locations have been carbon-neutral (Scope 1 und 2) since the end of 2021. Knorr-Bremse is also on track to achieve the ambitious goal of halving carbon emissions by 2030 – without applying carbon credits or offsets.


French location - Lisieux

Knorr-Bremse Lisieux belong to the commercial vehicule division of the group. As LeadPlant, Lisieux factory concentrate the group know-how regarding R&D, assembly, and marketing of actuators and compressors. In addition of the OE business, the aftermarket activity propose AM pieces on the french market and to the export. 

Our Team will present ProFleet Assist +, a retrofitable collision warning system specifically designed for trucks, buses and trailers. The collision avoidance system is based on Mobileye's advanced computer vision algorithms, which continuously analyse the driving environment to identify hazards, such as other vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists. Hazards are identified in real time, and the driver is alerted with visual and/or audible warnings, whether in the city, countryside or on the motorway

As a market leader, the group makes an essential contribution to safety on the rails and on the roads, working in particular on the current problems of the industrial world. Our latest innovations are in complete adequacy with these issues, linked to an approach of safety, innovation, sustainable development and passenger comfort.

Air Supply Smart

Intelligent air production combines conventional oil-free air production with a converter and live data monitoring. The innovation lies in the ability to communicate and analyze air production data live. Adjustments according to use are then possible, taking into account the environment, the user or the state of the air production.


The Merak clean[air] solution is a complete air treatment system that reduces air pollution (bacteria, viruses, etc.) by 99%. This solution combines several innovative solutions, whether in the field of air distribution, filtration or purification. 

Retaining 99% of particles between 0.3 and 2.5 μm for a railroad air conditioning system, requiring high levels of airflow, is a great industrial achievement. By comparison, an FFP2 mask is limited to 95%. The clean[air] concept thus provides the most effective barrier against the smallest pathogens.


LED light strips are added to the doors of railway equipment, without calling into question the design and the initial validation of the door system. Indeed, the driving and safety functions are not modified.

The innovation is designed to be installed without heavy modification of the door leaf structure.
The light signals are synchronized with the door opening and closing phases, allowing a better visibility of the sequence for the users and an improvement of the flow.
