Jacobs expects the plant in Brno is expected to play an important role in the further growth of the company. Future, phased development of the 2,000 square-meter plant in Brno could see production gradually increase to 200,000 units annually, Jacobs says.

Since September 2019, Jacobs has manufactured all engine brakes for Daimler in Europe in Brno, with the supply of Daimler’s North American orders satisfied by Jacobs’ production facility in Bloomfield, USA. To date, Jacobs has supplied over 8 million engine brakes to heavy-duty engine manufacturers and commercial vehicle manufacturers worldwide.
