Knaus Tabbert resumes production in Germany after shutdown- The corona virus affected and continues to affect almost all industries and companies – including recreational vehicle manufacturers. Knaus Tabbert GmbH resumed production in its Jandelsbrunn and Mottgers plants this Monday after a shutdown of several weeks.

Managing Director Gerd Adamietzki commented: “This is a pleasing step towards normality, which was only possible because important suppliers in the region were also able to resume production and we have taken preparatory measures to protect the health of our employees.

Knaus Tabbert observes and evaluates past and current developments very closely – in order to make the daily work routine as safe as possible for the employees, special safety and hygiene concepts were implemented. Among other things, body temperature is measured at the entrances and masks are compulsory on the entire company premises.

Additional protective measures, such as disinfection stations, are installed at all relevant stations. Break times were designed in shift models in such a way that as few colleagues as possible are in the canteen at the same time and the necessary safety distance can be maintained. Through flexible working time models and the splitting of some departments into office presence and home office, it was also ensured that the company was accessible to customers during the shutdown and still able to act. The health of the employees and visitors is the top priority in all decisions and the trade partners are also supported with a lot of assistance.

At the main location in Jandelsbrunn in Lower Bavaria alone, there are about 1500 employees, and in the Tabbert factory in Mottgers, about 400 employees. The majority of Czech employees are also able to return to their jobs as a result of the relaxation for business travellers.

New approaches, future-oriented technologies and a unique design – coupled with a focus on the customer – make Knaus Tabbert a highly successful innovation driver in the industry.

In model year 2020, Knaus Tabbert impresses with innovative new developments and fresh ideas – all in-line with the aim of the Knaus Tabbert team to continuously improve. On a large scale, that begins with two exciting show cars (KNAUS L!VE I and WEINSBERG The CORE) and includes numerous innovative details. In the coming model year 2020, for instance, all motorhomes and CUVs will be equipped as standard with a charging converter, with which the battery of the vehicle can be charged more quickly and safely. Plus, all vehicles will be fitted with a space-saving BWT water filter system, to ensure a supply of clean, pleasant-tasting and bacteria-free water. From 2020, the innovative e.hit rear carrier – with detachable trailer couplings will be available on request. It is attached directly to the chassis and automatically swings out from underneath the bumper at the touch of a button. The media package also includes a head-up display. The transparent screen, which is directly in the driver’s field of view, is a major plus for road safety. The voice control feature in TABBERT CELLINI makes it possible to operate various functions in the caravan by voice command. The relevant interface is optionally available as a factory-installed feature. Moreover, Knaus Tabbert is working with Bosch Engineering to completely redefine “freedom” with an intelligent 48 V on-board power system. This means an independent power supply in the caravan, and longer self-sufficient caravanning experience – with all imaginable comfort. Innovation does not stop at good service. From now on, all KNAUS and WEINSBERG motorhomes can be serviced, attended and repaired at twelve MAN service stations.

Great innovations and new, future-oriented and innovative motorhomes, CUVs and caravans will also be on displayed by the Lower Bavarian company at the Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf. The highlights of model year 2020 include:
