Recaro acclaimed as the best commercial vehicle seat brand

Kaiserslautern, Germany. Germany’s commercial vehicle pros have had their say: in a “The Best Brands 2013” survey, readers of the “Lastauto Omnibus”, “Trans Aktuell” and “Fernfahrer” magazines voted Recaro Automotive Seating as the leader in the “Seats” category. The prize was presented to company representatives at an award event in Stuttgart, Germany, on June 18, 2013.

More than 10,000 truck fans took part in this year’s “The Best Brands 2013” reader survey. Recaro Automotive Seating was voted top of the “Seats” category, attracting 60.6 percent of the votes cast. Dr. Klaus Heldmann, Vice President Commercial Vehicle Seating, says: “We are extremely pleased about receiving this award – especially since we only launched our new Recaro C 7000 and Recaro C 6000 seats for the aftermarket in December 2012. The positive reception, reflected by the readers’ votes, shows us that we are on the right track with our new generation of products.”

In developing the new seats, Recaro Automotive Seating put people at the heart of all its thinking. “We first of all researched the needs of truck drivers, before creating a new standard with tailor-made seats”, reports Dr. Klaus Heldmann. “Our branded products lead the field in terms of design, innovation, ergonomics, quality and safety – so the user enjoys all-round benefits.” And as the sole commercial vehicle seat to have been awarded the AGR (Aktion Gesunder Ru?cken e.V. – Campaign for Healthier Backs) seal of approval, Recaro’s contribution to driver health has also been recognized.

Both the top product – Recaro C 7000 – and the standard model – Recaro C 6000 – provide all the adjustments required to allow the seats to be individually set up to the needs of different drivers. There are also several product-dependent innovative functions and features, including the unique combination of adjustable pelvic and lumbar support, adjustable side supports on the seat cushion and backrest, adjustable shoulder support, comfort release seat length adjustment, and a seat climate package that allows the simultaneous use of seat heating and climate control.
