Wabco Holding announced that it has entered into a long-term agreement with Iveco to supply anti-lock braking systems with Wabco’s ESCsmart technology that faciliates electronic stability control for commercial vehicles. Wabco’s ABS and ESCsmart technologies will equip Fiat’s Eurocargo Euro 6 medium-duty on-road trucks starting in 2013 for series production in Europe.
The multiyear contract represents new business and further expands Wabco’s supply relationship with Iveco. The company furnishes Iveco heavy-duty on-road trucks with ABS, ESC, electronic braking and electronically controlled air suspension systems, as well as air compressor technology, braking products, adaptive cruise control and vehicle control modules, among other vehicle components.
“This new contract with Iveco is another mark of technology leadership as we continue to contribute to Iveco’s success in Europe through Wabco innovations that increase vehicle safety performance and maximize reliability,” says Jean-Christophe Figueroa, Wabco vice president, Vehicle Control Systems. “With ESCsmart technology, Iveco can respond faster to market needs by introducing new vehicle types within significantly shorter development phases as we help optimize the total cost and effort of adopting electronic stability control.”
