WABCO: A Global Technology Leader
WABCO employees thrive in a culture of innovation and diversity as our goal is that our technologies, products and services meet customer needs in both developed and emerging markets. Our commercial, engineering and manufacturing operations span the globe.
Three strategic differentiators anchor WABCO’s global success: Technology Leadership, Globalization and Excellence in Execution
- Technology Leadership – Pioneering technologies has defined WABCO for the last several decades. Our leadership is rooted in unique capabilities to develop the overwhelming majority of our industry’s breakthroughs in safety and efficiency systems for trucks, buses and trailers. WABCO technologies also help the industry to respond to increasing government regulations around the world for safer and more efficient commercial vehicles on the road.
- Globalization – WABCO is globalizing constantly by growing, leveraging and optimizing our network of capabilities in manufacturing, sourcing and engineering. This translates into increased speed, adaptability, quality and lower cost structures that benefit our customers around the world. WABCO develops local teams to lead our business in every region. Two-thirds of WABCO’s manufacturing takes place in best-cost countries; over one-third of our engineers are now based in emerging countries.
- Excellence in Execution – The accelerating globalization of the commercial vehicle industry underscores why excellence in execution is central to WABCO’s continued success. It calls for more than technology; it demands continuous change. Our response is to transform how we do business through an integrated operating system: change management involving all employees; organizational development across the value chain; long term customer partnerships; fast and flexible product development, and Six Sigma Lean processes from suppliers to customers.
