August 25th 2014 Kiekert AG, Heiligenhaus Kiekert AG, world market leader in automotive locking systems, has developed its truck latch, adding a host of innovations for heavy commercial vehicles. The light, small and compact truck locking system brings together the full extent of Kiekert’s expertise, garnered from decades of experience in the development of innovative locking systems and its competence in global high-volume production. The truck latch can be expanded flexibly to incorporate a wide array of comfort functions in line with customer wishes. These include central locking, anti-theft security, switches and sensors. With the latest generation of the truck latch, Kiekert will continue to expand its customer-oriented service on the strategically important truck market.
Through a weight saving of around 30 percent per truck in comparison to conventional truck latches, Kiekert’s newest generation of truck latches unites intelligent system architecture with a compact construction.

Through flexible fixing points, Kiekert’s truck latch can be integrated into any door and provides the driver with a new dimension of safety, efficiency and comfort. The truck latch has been developed to production maturity and has been successfully validated.

The newest generation of our truck latch is a successful synergy of German engineering skill and more than a century of product expertise in our development and production of first-class side-door locking systems. We will set new benchmarks in safety and comfort within the global truck market,” said Dr. Karl Krause, Chairman of the Board of Management of Kiekert AG.
