The global engine brake pioneer collaborates with engine manufacturers to develop engine brakes that solve 21st century performance and efficiency challenges.

Coinciding with the company’s 50th anniversary, the launch of the new site catalogs how Jacobs Vehicle Systems has evolved from a manufacturer of its trademark Jake Brake™ Engine Brake to a trusted partner that companies including Cummins, Daimler, Hino and Dong Feng invite to design discussions from the earliest stages of development.

Today, Jacobs serves both OEMs and end-user customers, providing solutions for the global commercial vehicle industry. The website details the company’s commitment to deliver exceptional quality and technologically advanced products and services to all customers. With an international customer base, Jacobs technology can be found across the globe.

“During the past 50 years our business philosophy has been rooted in core values which have not changed,” said Rob Tykal, President of Jacobs Vehicle Systems. “The Journey Continues as we look forward to the next 50 years of striving to deliver exceptional quality and technologically advanced products and services to all of our customers.”
