Knorr-Bremse has signed a global maintenance framework agreement with CAF, initially for an eight-year period. The agreement covers the maintenance of multiple Knorr-Bremse subsystems installed in various types of trains operating on several continents.

The contract has been awarded as part of CAF’s development of a global purchasing strategy based on establishing long-term agreements with its strategic suppliers in order to improve its competitiveness, raise the quality of its services and propose future solutions and supply alternatives. This agreement reaffirms Knorr-Bremse’s position as a leading, globally active Partner of Choice specializing in the end-to-end life cycle management of rail vehicles.

The agreement includes the maintenance of braking systems (including friction materials), HVAC systems, and entrance systems, as installed in various vehicle classes such as subway and regional trains. In addition, the contract provides a comprehensive technological and commercial framework, meaning that there is no further need to spend significant time and effort negotiating maintenance contracts between the two companies. Instead, individual contracts can be swiftly subsumed into the recently concluded framework agreement and adapted to the specific vehicle maintenance requirements in each case – further streamlining and synergizing the relationship between the two parties.

“With a global presence that’s embedded at a local level, our worldwide service offering for rail vehicles is one of the mainstays of our business, putting us right next to our customers,” explains Dr. Jürgen Wilder, Member of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG and responsible for the Rail Vehicle Systems division. “That’s why we’re delighted that CAF has reaffirmed their confidence in us by entering into this global service agreement and relying once again on the systems expertise, tailored services portfolio, and solution-finding abilities of Knorr-Bremse RailServices. Through our services, we’re supporting CAF’s efforts to safeguard train operating life by helping to improve on-track availability and provide attractive mobility options to the general public.”
