This has a considerable advantage, as each customer location in the NAFTA region can be reached within just a few days.”

Customers in the replacement market are benefiting from the development expertise that ContiTech Air Spring Systems has built up in close collaboration with vehicle manufacturers and is bringing new product solutions to the industry. “Our versatile products provide attractive solutions,” said Hilkirk, “and their optimal price/performance ratio impresses every market segment.”
