In doing this, Knorr-Bremse is optimizing its portfolio and consistently aligning its business activities with core competencies and performance. The transaction closed in late January 2024.

Dr. Nicolas Lange, member of the Knorr-Bremse AG Executive Board and responsible for the Rail Vehicle Systems division: “With its focus on electric vehicle equipment, Kiepe Electric ( has proved to be a dynamic, efficient business unit. Overall, however, only a small amount of synergy could be achieved between Kiepe Electric and the Rail Vehicle Systems division, which is why we made the decision to separate from Kiepe Electric. This process has now reached a successful and final conclusion following the sale. We thank all the Kiepe employees for their fantastic dedication and wish them all the best for their future under the new owner.”

Frank Markus Weber, Chief Financial Officer of Knorr-Bremse AG, added: “The ongoing review of our business portfolio’s performance and its fit with our strategy is going successfully. With the sale of Kiepe Electric, we have now reached another important milestone, and Kiepe Electric will be able to focus clearly on its own strengths and business”.

The transaction consists of the acquisition of all Kiepe Electric business activities and all employees by Heramba GmbH, based in Berlin. In October 2023, Heramba entered into a business combination agreement with Project Energy Reimagined Acquisition Corporation (PERAC). Following consummation of the business combination, the combined company’s securities are expected to be listed on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC.

The sale of Kiepe Electric is an important step for Knorr-Bremse in its BOOST program. On the whole, Knorr-Bremse is seeking to grow sustainably and profitably over the next few years by applying a range of strategic initiatives and measures. Knorr-Bremse will continue to hold a 15 percent interest in Kiepe Electric’s capital.
