• Kögel has sold more than 6,800 vehicles in the first 6 months of 2012
• Thomas Heckel: "In contrast to our competitors, we have once again been able to increase our share of the market in Germany considerably"
• Exports accounted for 69 percent of sales

The IAA commercial vehicle year of 2012 has so far been very good for Kögel: Europe's third largest trailer manufacturer has demonstrated an increase in production in the past six months when compared to the previous year of 1.213 to 6,888 units.

German trailer market
The current registration figures for the first six month in 2012 issued by the Federal Authority for Powered Vehicles show that: Even though the trailer market in Germany has shrunk by 6.9 percent, Kögel has been able to buck this general trend by increasing its share of the market by 2 percent. In the field of curtain-sider trucks Kögel recorded a market share of over 18 percent.

Export strength
Around 17 percent of the 40,149 trailers produced by German trailer manufacturers were supplied by Kögel, according to the VDA. That is 4 percent more than the comparable time period in 2011, and also bearing in mind the reduction in production of all German manufacturers. 69 percent of the Kögel trailers were destined for the export market.
In the first two quarters Kögel has been able to continue to increase its market share, even though the general trend was in the opposite direction. Because all Kögel innovations help forwarding companies to save costs and to increase transport efficiency. Under the motto "Added value for the forwarding companies and the construction industry" will, of course, also be the IAA Highlights, that Kögel will be presenting in September in Hanover in Hall 27 on Stand F18.

"In contrast to our major competitors, we have once again been able to increase our share of the market in Germany considerably. This is not only as a result of our high quality vehicles, but also primarily because of the long-term added value that they represent“, explains Thomas Heckel, CEO and Managing Director at Kögel, the reasons for the continuing success of his company.

Kögel, a brand with over 75 years of tradition which earned a leading position all over Europe, is once again in focus with new energy and its distinctive experience and competence. Kögel has reinvented itself – by returning to the strengths that originally made the company great: Passion for transport. Quality characterised by engineering expertise. Innovation which deserves the name because it provides relevant benefit to customers. In addition to products for the forwarding industry, there are now models for the construction industry, which is not entirely a new sphere of activity for Kögel.
