Wabco Holdings said it had entered a long-term agreement with Hyundai Motor to supply medium duty trucks with electronic braking systems (EBS), anti-lock braking systems (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC) and electronically controlled air suspension (ECAS) systems as well as air processing units (APU).

The supplier added it would also become the first to supply Hyundai with EBS and integrated pedal units (IPU) for its medium duty trucks. Wabco's light-weight and robust IPUs require less maintenance time and help reduce costs over conventional units.

"Following closely on our contract in July to supply Hyundai with Maxx single-piston air disc brakes for the new truck series, this latest agreement further validates the strength of our relationship with this leading manufacturer, and ensures that their new medium-duty trucks are equipped with the most advanced safety and efficiency technologies," said Sujie Yu, Wabco president APAC.

"While Hyundai continues to place its faith in Wabco's technology and our intimate knowledge of the local market dynamics, this agreement also bolsters our three pillar strategy of technology leadership, globalisation and excellence in execution to sustain value creation for our customers," added Hyung Keun Ji, Wabco Korea business leader.
