Tietjen GmbH is delivering the 100,000th air brake system

A story of success for 86 years – a new milestone has been achieved now.

2022 already is a record year for Dipl.-Ing. Tietjen GmbH from Calle. This is not only the case in terms of turnover, in spite of the many delivery bottlenecks and coronavirus-related limitations. Tietjen delivered the 100,000th air brake system in Mid-August. The client was Swecon Baumaschinen GmbH from Isernhagen. The kit was installed in the L90H Volvo wheel loader by Grass Agrardienstleistungen from Burgwedel near Hanover. That is also where the vehicle was handed over by Swecon Baumaschinen, complete with air brake system, trailer hitch, ABS socket, light socket, and the required road licensing. The managing directors of the German market leader in air brake systems, Jürgen and Hauke Tietjen, attended that event in Burgwedel to participate in handover of the vehicle and present the certificates for the 100,000th air brake system.

“Serial number 100,000! A magical number, and reason to celebrate together with our long-term customer Swecon and with Grass. We are happy that this special serial number plate is now riding along on the agricultural service provider's L90H Volvo wheel loader,” says Hauke Tietjen.

Long-term cooperation

It's a story of success in the cooperation with Dipl.-Ing. Tietjen GmbH”, says Thomas Brandenstein from product marketing at Swecon Baumaschinen GmbH.
