The Schmitz Cargobull agreement is billed as an important milestone to continue to grow in this segment, and further strengthens the Haldex market position for air disc brakes for trailers in Europe

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, according to the supplier. The agreement includes the supply of both 22" and 19" ModulT versions.

The deal is billed as 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, the company noted.

"We are proud to have extended our partnership with this customer. Supplying the ModulT disc brakes adds a new dimension to our long-standing relationship", says Stephan Kulle, executive vice president EMEA.
