SAF-HOLLAND receives the Gold Award at the 2017 Solutrans Innovation Awards

Luxembourg, December 7, 2017 - SAF-HOLLAND, Europe's largest listed commercial vehicle supplier, received the gold award at the 2017 Solutrans Innovation Awards for its SAF Adaptive Air Damping System at the Solutrans international transportation trade show.

At the Solutrans Innovation Awards, launched in 2001, the Lyon Chamber of Commerce, Lyon Métropole CCI, honors the most innovative solutions in the transportation industry in the categories of Bodywork Manufacturers and Equipment Manufacturers. The expert jury, consisting of well-known representatives from businesses, associations and the media, selects the winners in the categories gold, silver, bronze and sustainable development.

This year, SAF-HOLLAND's innovative air damping system SAF Adaptive Air Damping received the gold award - the highest accolade in the equipment category. The air damping system simultaneously assumes the functions of the air spring and the damper and can be integrated into the usual chassis systems in today's vehicles. As a result, semi-trailers no longer need hydraulic shock absorbers.

"We are very pleased to receive this award. SAF Adaptive Air Damping makes a noticeable contribution to optimizing a trailer's weight. Components and steering save around six kilograms of weight per axle, thereby facilitating a higher payload. SAF Adaptive Air Damping highlights the SAF-HOLLAND Group's expertise in lightweight construction and weight optimization." explains SAF-HOLLAND CEO Detlef Borghardt.

The new system is set to enter the market in 2018.


SAF-HOLLAND S.A., located in Luxembourg, is the largest independent listed supplier to the commercial vehicle market in Europe delivering mainly to the trailer markets. With sales of approximately EUR 1,042 million in 2016, the Company is one of the world's leading manufacturers and suppliers of chassis-related systems and components primarily for trailers, trucks, buses, and recreational vehicles. The product range comprises axle and suspension systems, fifth wheels, kingpins, and landing gear marketed under the brands SAF, HOLLAND and Neway. SAF-HOLLAND sells its products to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) on six continents. The Group's Aftermarket business supplies spare parts to the service networks of Original Equipment Suppliers (OES), as well as to end customers and service centers through its extensive global distribution network. SAF-HOLLAND is one of the few suppliers in the truck and trailer industry that is internationally positioned in almost all markets worldwide. With the innovation campaign "SMART STEEL - ENGINEER BUILD CONNECT," SAF-HOLLAND combines mechanics with sensors and electronics and drives the digital networking of commercial vehicles and logistics chains. A total of 3,500 committed employees worldwide are already working today on the future of the transportation industry.
