Kiekert AG Key Developments

Kiekert AG Plans to Introduce an Innovative Brake System for Car Doors

Kiekert AG is planning to introduce an innovative "brake system" for car doors called i-protect. The company's sensor-based system is designed to reduce sheet metal damage and costly insurance claims by automatically stopping car doors from striking other objects as they are being opened. The mechanism built into the company's i-protect system will stop car doors from slamming into parked cars, garage walls and other obstacles and potentially could eliminate millions of irritating and often costly dings and dents.

Kiekert AG Names Lukas Hlava as General Manager at its Plant in Prelouc, Czech Republic

Kiekert AG has named Lukas Hlava as general manager at its plant in Prelouc, Czech Republic. Lukas Hlava, who has been working for Kiekert for 13 years, takes over plant management with immediate effect and will continue to develop the business of the latch factory. Hlava will report directly to Jurgen Peulen, Kiekert Executive Vice President Operations. Prior to joining Kiekert, the Czech native worked for Foxconn in Pardubice, Czech Republic.

Kiekert Introduces New Automotive LED Latch System

Kiekert AG has developed an industry-first LED door latch with a variety of unique safety, security and product-branding features. Compared to conventional warning-light systems, Kiekert's new system has an LED warning light built into the latch itself. The LED light is more clearly visible to other drivers and pedestrians when a vehicle's door is being opened and closed. The new design also is lighter and easier to install during assembly operations. LED color and brightness can be varied to enhance brand awareness, support vehicle design themes and adapt to individual customer preferences. Child- and emergency-lock options also are available and the system's door-latch LEDs can be made to flash to further enhance visibility and safety.
