Knorr-Bremse in North America.

Knorr-Bremse’s North American rail vehicle business in the United States of America, Canada and Mexico is built on two strong pillars. New York Air Brake (NYAB) brings together the Group’s freight transportation activities in the region, while Knorr Brake Company (KBC) is responsible for the mass transit business.

The railroad industry is without doubt among the most important modes of transportation in the vast expanses of North America, while it is almost impossible to imagine mass transit in the major cities without their high-frequency metro services. The Knorr-Bremse Group is firmly established in both sectors thanks to its subsidiaries NYAB and Knorr Brake Company. The Company has put down deep roots in the region through its local sites, management team, career opportunities and its range of different activities. Click on the following links to find out more.
