Webasto awarded for its heating and air conditioning systems

Stockdorf/Munich – June 19, 2013 – With over 71 percent of the vote Webasto has taken 1st place in the “Best Brand” survey. Readers of top German magazines Fernfahrer, lastauto omnibus and trans aktuell – published by ETM – have placed Webasto first in the category “air conditioning and heating systems for commercial vehicles” every year since 2005. This year the company was even able to exceed its previous year’s score. The lead over the competition is 23 percent.

“The award is all the more pleasing for us because over the past year we have significantly expanded our range of air conditioning systems for commercial vehicles. This means we have even more to offer our customers. From us they receive a customised complete heating, air conditioning and transport refrigeration system from a single source”, says Robert Lang, Director Product Market Management Heavy Duty at Webasto.
