WABCO Holdings Inc. has been awarded a new long-term agreement by a major manufacturer of commercial vehicles headquartered in Europe. WABCO is a leading global supplier of technologies designed to improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles.
As part of the agreement, WABCO will supply brake actuator technologies for a new truck platform that will be introduced into Southeast Asian markets.
WABCO will leverage its facilities in India and Thailand to ensure timely delivery of the order.
Superbly designed by WABCO engineers in India, these brake actuators have been optimally adapted for the customer’s local product applications in the Southeast Asian region. WABCO will also supply these products from its factory in Rayong, Thailand. Opened in 2013, the Rayong facility is WABCO’s newest factory within its global manufacturing network in 11 countries on four continents.
Leon Liu, WABCO President, Truck, Bus & Car Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) Division comments that the new long-term contract demonstrates how the company has further leveraged the global power of WABCO through outstanding engineering and design capabilities in India combined with newly established world-class manufacturing capacity located in Thailand. WABCO’s globalisation power is helping a major European commercial vehicle maker to further expand its success in Southeast Asia.
Under the extension of an existing long-term agreement, WABCO’s factory in Rayong will continue through 2021 to equip the customer’s standardised medium- and heavy-duty truck platform, which is manufactured at its plants in Thailand, India and China.
WABCO has been working with this customer in Europe, India, Japan, and North and South America. WABCO supplies electronic control systems and solutions for braking, engine transmission and chassis applications that improve vehicle safety and efficiency.
