Serfac launches latest applications from Knecht filters

Distributed in Ireland by Serfac Limited for over 20 years, Knecht has been part of the Mahle brand family for decades and has a global reputation for strong brand values and excellent customer relationships. For over 80 years, the Mahle Group has been one of the leading international manufacturers of high-quality components for the automotive industry.

All the company’s products are quality certified and are subject to stringent multistage quality control.  Knecht filters are supplied to practically all large OE manufacturers, including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volkswagen, Ford, Opel, Porsche, General Motors, SEAT, Renault, Volvo, SAAB, Rover, Rolls Royce, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Suzuki and Skoda.

The company’s central R&D facility in Stuttgart services and supports the development of its brands through comprehensive scientific research and it is this scientific approach which puts Knecht Filters at the leading edge of filter manufacturing technology and makes the brand the choice of the world’s most prestigious manufacturers.

Knecht offers a comprehensive product range encompassing air, oil and fuel filters for passenger cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles and the brand continuously expands its filter range with innovative, high quality products. This includes eco filters that can be completely incinerated and cabin air filters, all of which are produced to original equipment quality.

Mahle places particular value on the fact that new trade products are brought onto the market as close as possible to the start of the vehicle’s production and, in most cases, before the first service interval.

Accordingly, the “time to market”, i.e. the period of time required from product development to market launch, is given a high priority. Mahle has invested heavily in this area: in new, flexible, and efficient manufacturing technologies, in central and decentralised provisioning of goods, and in expanding its team of experts.

The latest popular application releases from Knecht include:
Air Filters for the BMW 5 & & Series ’08 on (LX3598); the Hyundai Santa Fe Diesel ’12 on (LX3760) and the Citroen/Peugeot 1.6Hdi ’13 on (LX3987).

Oil Filters for Nissan Quashqai/Renault Captur ’13 on (OX968D); Mercedes C-Class (10/12 on) (OX982D) and Audi A6/A7/Q7 3.0TDI ’14 on (OX1076D).

New fuel filters are now available for the Mercedes A/B/CLA/GLA 1.5D ’13 on (KL942) and Audi A6/A7 2.0TDI/3.0 TDI (4/11 on) (KL915).
