Knorr Bremse Merak Getafe headquarters

MERAK: Knorr-Bremse has unified its worldwide rolling stock heating, ventilation and air-conditioning activities under the overall brand name Merak.

This covers Merak’s global headquarters at Getafe in Spain, Merak North America, the Merak-Jinxin joint venture in China, the rail HVAC activities of Sigma in Australia, Kiepe Electric in Austria and Knorr-Bremse India, and Rail Services locations.

‘Having one single brand for intelligent rail climate control is the next logical step in anchoring this family of systems in our overall portfolio’, said Dr Peter Radina, management board member responsible for the HVAC business of Knorr-Bremse Rail Vehicle Systems, on September 2. ‘The new brand combines the values, financial strength and advanced technology of the Knorr-Bremse Group with the proximity, passion and expertise in air quality and climate control of all its HVAC sites.’
