TIP takes the millionth Krone

Werlte, Germany: A Cool Liner with the millionth chassis number WKESD000001000000 has rolled off the Krone production line for the Norwegian branch of the TIP Trailer Services.

In 1971, TIP was one of the first customers for Krone when it started building trailers.

Bob Fast, chief executive, TIP said at the handover ceremony: “We are particularly pleased that we can look back on half a century of extremely reliable cooperation with Krone today. Receiving the millionth vehicle produced by Krone is a powerful symbol for TIP. We are convinced that we can always rely on Krone’s high-quality and innovative trailers in the future as well.”

Ingo Geerdes, managing director sales, Krone, said: The millionth Krone trailer handed over to TIP today is a Cool Liner. This refrigerated vehicle in particular underlines how many facets our cooperation has – because it was a request from TIP that made Krone enter the refrigerated trailer market 25 years ago.”

The first Krone commercial vehicle was produced in Werlte in 1971. Today, Krone makes trailers in plants at Werlte, Lübtheen, Herzlake and Tire (Turkey). Over the last 50 years, Krone has averaged around 20,000 units annually – more than 1 million vehicles in total.
