With over a century of combined knowledge and experience, KBC has evolved in many ways. Since our creation in 1972 in Rockville, Maryland, our continuous growth led to our facility being moved in 1991 to the Westminster location where we stand today, and will continue standing throughout our planned expansion (in Westminster) in the coming years. We have been involved in the thriving Westminster and local Maryland communities and continually search for ways to be involved. Throughout the decades of development, technology comes and goes, expanding capabilities and power while contracting footprints and drawbacks, but certain facets of KBC life has remained constant:
• To our employees, we are never-ending supply of engineering and production challenges waiting to be solved through the development of new and ground-breaking projects sprouting up across the entire world.
• To the community of Westminster and its surrounding areas, we are the support for generations of local families through employment and aide, of which we are proud to be involved in the following:
American Caner Society
Arc of Carroll County
Boy Scouts of America
Carroll County Chamber of Commerce
Carroll County Food Sundays
Carroll County Youth Services
Carroll Technology Council
Girl Scouts of America
Human Services Program

• To our parent company, Knorr-Bremse, we are the provider of the leading braking technology for the North American mass rail transit markets.
• And to our customers, we are a technology partner, working hand in hand with them to improve their operations, a company with well-defined product vision and a dedication to making our products work.
When it comes down to it, being a KBC employee means walking onto most any rail transit car in the country and knowing you were a part — whether it be sales to engineering; production to manuals, and anywhere in between — of making that train stop safely, the doors open reliably, and the interior environment the most comfortable it can be ... with a quiet, knowing smile.
