Wabco has entered into a new long-term agreement with an unnamed global manufacturer of trucks and buses, headquartered in Europe.
Wabco will supply the customer’s vehicle brands with its modular braking system platform (mBSP). The contract represents Wabco’s single largest order ever for supply of mBSP technology.
Introduced in 2014 as an industry-first, Wabco’s mBSP enables vehicle makers to equip their global truck and bus platforms with either anti-lock braking (ABS) or electronic braking systems (EBS) anywhere in the world.
By avoiding different braking configurations, the supplier maintains its mBSP saves development time, reduces design overhead and lowers production costs for OEMs.
Wabco now counts four global original equipment manufacturers as customers for its mBSP technology, which also provides integration of a vehicle maker’s own intelligent software and added system functionalities.
“Modularity strongly differentiates Wabco’s mBSP as a game-changing braking system platform for OEMs, particularly by delivering high levels of flexibility and scalability to support their global strategies,” said Wabco Truck, Bus and Car Original Equipment Manufacturers Division president, Jorge Solis.
“Wabco’s technology enables our customers to develop and produce diverse models on the same vehicle platform and to bring new trucks and buses to market faster.”
