From 0 to 10,000 in only one year - the Krone Trailer Axle has reportedly succeeded in accomplishing this major sales feat.
Since its launch at the 2014, IAA commercial vehicle transport show in Hanover, Germany, over 10,000 axle units have been installed. Managing Director Bernhard Krone is extremely satisfied with this positive development.
"Our strategy to offer the "All-in-Krone-Trailer" including our own Krone axle has proved to be the right approach. Our customers trust in the Krone brand and the axle too. We are grateful for their confidence, as our axle represents a true matter of personal importance as far as I am concerned."
The Krone axle is manufactured by Krone's partner gigant - Trenkamp & Gehle based in Dinklage; the company has been part of the Krone Group since 2013. The Krone axle system with disk brakes is distinctive for its innovative, maintenance-free bearing unit (stepped hub unit), and exceptionally lightweight air-spring suspension arm with bolted clamping attachment. A further plus are the homogeneous material characteristics from bearing seat to bearing seat, which ensure special stability.
Krone grants its customers a six-year warranty on the axle with unlimited mileage. Additionally, Krone offers the "One-Check-Per-Year System" requiring only one check per year within the scope of the main service.
Since the introduction of the "All-in-Krone-Trailer" Krone has succeeded in significantly extending its service portfolio. For example, all vehicle components feature a Krone part number, thus enabling customers to conveniently and quickly order all parts directly from Krone.
"For our customers' benefit, we have lined up as an all-round service provider when it comes to trailers and the 10,000 Krone trailer axles which have already been installed are testament both to the acceptance of the axle in the market and to our 'All-in-Krone-Trailer' approach." said Bernard Krone.
