The KS Kolbenschmidt division develops, produces and markets gasoline and diesel engine pistons for cars and commercial vehicles and is among the foremost players in its segment. Other products include pistons for two-cycle and compressor engines as well as large pistons for stationary, marine and locomotive engines.
Upgrading power density as well as achieving further reductions in fuel consumption and emissions have for years now been the factors driving the development of new types of pistons at KS Kolbenschmidt.
Neckarsulm-based KS Kolbenschmidt GmbH, an international company, harnesses to maximum effect the synergies among its various units: large-bore, commercial vehicle and car pistons. Available for this purpose is the experience derived from local development departments and the development centers and production facilities in Europe, North and South America and Asia.
For years now, many notable OEMs have been regular customers of this division. The chief markets are Europe, North and South America, and Asia.
