According to the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), trailer giant Kögel achieved an above-average rate of growth in 2011.

Kögel's turnover  more than doubled in the last 12 months in comparison to the previous year, to around 12,000 units. “Kögel recorded by far the highest growth compared to its competitors in 2011,” the renowned trailer specialist says in an official statement. 

Around 14 per cent of the 83,694 trailers produced by German manufacturers were supplied by Kögel. Kögel's export ratio, meanwhile, has increased more than threefold – to 67 per cent.

“Kögel is now using the positive upturn seen in 2011 to continue to drive forward innovative ideas in 2012 that are focused on increasing efficiency,” the company says. Furthermore, the company is planning to widen its portfolio of trailers by adding several rail-loadable models for combined transportation, as well as a completely new product range. “The forwarding industry should expect to see even more from Kögel in 2012.
