Knorr-Bremse has changed the name of its reman brand. Launched at Automechanika Frankfurt, the name ‘EconX‘ replaces the previous term ‘Genuine Remanufactured Exchange Parts’. The company says this sums up the products’ qualities: “Original, value-based and sustainable.” The company revealed the latest additions to the EconX portfolio, including an electronic clutch servo. “As the world’s biggest trade fair for the automotive aftermarket, Automechanika is an appropriate venue for the launch of our new brand,” said Wolfgang Krinner, member of the management board of Knorr-Bremse Commercial Vehicle Systems.
“Knorr-Bremse Truck Services understands customers’ needs and can deliver a wide range of reliable, economical aftermarket products and services. As well as the usual Knorr-Bremse OEM products, we also supply many remanufactured ones for value-based repair of older vehicles.” Reman products will have “a life expectancy appropriate for the age of the vehicle concerned”, the company added.
