KOEGEL TRAILER (KOEGEL)

Kögel Trailer GmbH is one of the three biggest manufacturers in Europe for Truck Trailers. In the product portfolio of Kögel all kinds of Trailer types can be found such as Tipper Trailer or Cooling Trailer for example. Kögel products are able to provide excellent performance combined with high durability. The company reacts quickly to market needs to keep operating costs low for its customers. Kögel is working hard to implement “green” technologies into their products in order to get emissions and costs down in the transportation sector. Examples are the newly developed CNG Modules for trailers, which allow up to 70% less CO2 emissions in regional and long distance transport by use of liquid gas as engine fuel. Another feature is the lightweight design of the Trailers, which allows customers to bring payloads up and emissions down in service. Right now, only metallic lightweight design is applied in Kögel Trailers.

The company is owner led and has production and service sites in Germany and eastern Europe. Kögel generated a turnover of 400 million € in 2012 with about 900 employees.

Department involved in the project

The project activities will be carried out at the production site within the headquarters of Kögel GmbH & Co.KG located in Burtenbach.
