Knorr-Bremse in South Korea.

Knorr-Bremse has pursued a single mission for over 110 years: to make mobility on roads and railways safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly. Today the Knorr-Bremse Group, based in Munich, is the world’s leading manufacturer of braking systems and a leading supplier of safety-critical sub-systems for rail and commercial vehicles.

Knorr-Bremse Rail Systems Korea Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Knorr-Bremse Asia Pacific (Holding) Ltd. Its head office is located in the center of Seoul, Jung-Gu district. Rail Service center, located in Suwon, is specialized in overhaul, maintenance service and the production of air supply and brake control components for both domestic and export markets. All Knorr-Bremse products for the domestic market can be tested and inspected in the service center according to Korean railway regulations. To meet the Korean customer requirement for the in-time service locally, Knorr-Bremse Korea is constantly striving to develop its technology and product which has more than 110 years of experience in braking technologies in order to satisfy our customers.

As Korea continues to invest heavily in rail transportation, with particular focus on high speed trains, but also on LRVs, Metros, Multiple Units and Locomotives, this sets the stage for strong growth in the rail industry. Moreover, Knorr-Bremse Korea is on the constant look-out for new market opportunities around the world together with Korean clients.

We want to make a significant contribution to greater safety and efficiency on roads and railways – both for passengers and for goods transport. Every day. All over the world.
