Wabco has started a new long-term supply agreement with Dongfeng Liuzhou Motor Company (DFLQ), an existing customer and one of the largest truck manufacturers in China.

The new business involves braking solutions, including anti-lock and electronic systems (EBS); as well as ESCsmart electronic stability control and OptiRide controlled air suspension, among other vehicle safety and efficiency technologies.

Wabco will start series delivery immediately to supply DFLQ's current medium and heavy-duty truck platforms. DFLQ produces trucks for the Chinese market and export destinations include South East Asia, Africa, the Middle East and South America.

"We are transforming our range of medium and heavy-duty trucks to be more competitive for long-haul transport and logistics," said DFLQ general manager, Cheng Daoran.

"We are leveraging Wabco's leadership in safety and efficiency technologies to improve vehicle performance.

"We also benefit from Wabco's maturity in globalisation that results in local connectivity and service, including local engineering and manufacturing at world-class levels."
