Company’s Fast-Growing Aftermarket Portfolio Designed to Help Fleets Increase Equipment Uptime at Every Stage of Service Lifecycle
AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (USA), January 29, 2020 – WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE: WBC), the leading global supplier of braking control systems and other advanced technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles, today announced the availability of several new best-in-class aftermarket product and service solutions for commercial vehicles, including an expanded range of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) retrofit kits. The full range of WABCO aftermarket products can be seen in the company’s booth (no. 309) during the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) ’20 conference and exposition this week in Grapevine, Texas.
New product and service solutions unveiled today in the WABCO booth include:
- OnSide® ADAS retrofit kits for major OEM vehicle applications:
Now available for several additional applications, WABCO OnSide retrofit kits enable fleets to enhance the safety of existing equipment by adding blind spot detection technology. This proven, radar-based system supports drivers in all visibility conditions by providing a warning when it detects a moving vehicle within a 160-degree arc in the adjacent passenger-side lane. WABCO also offers OnGuardACTIVE® and OnLane® ADAS retrofit kits for an array of popular vehicle applications.
- Genuine remanufactured air compressors:
The WABCO Reman Solutions product offering has been expanded to include premium remanufactured air compressors guaranteed to provide original equipment (OE) equivalent performance in even the most demanding operating conditions. Each unit is fully disassembled, inspected, cleaned, honed, updated with new components, reassembled and tested to the latest OE specifications, with all operations performed in the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Rochester Hills, Mich. Other WABCO Reman Solutions products include air dryers, automated manual transmissions, hydraulic power brake systems, gears
and Enhanced Easy-Stop™ trailer anti-lock braking systems
- Subscription-based TOOLBOX™ PLUS diagnostic software:
WABCO’s popular TOOLBOX software has been enhanced to help users save time in diagnosing WABCO systems. The new version, TOOLBOX PLUS, supports the latest WABCO product releases, including Intelligent Anti-lock Braking System (iABS™)
for trailers, Modular Braking System Platform (mBSP™) for trucks and TailGUARD™ reverse collision avoidance system
for trucks and trailers. A timesaving new “roll call” feature automatically identifies installed WABCO systems upon connection to the vehicle. In addition, warranty forms are pre-populated with VIN, fault code(s) and other information to help speed the claims process. As with the previous version, TOOLBOX PLUS offers aftermarket ECU programming capability to help reduce downtime and unit inventory requirements. The new software is being offered through one-, two- and three-year subscriptions.
- Expanded air dryer and cartridge offerings:
WABCO now offers three ranges each of replacement air dryers and cartridges to meet the performance and cost-per-mile demands of commercial trucks at each stage of the ownership lifecycle. Available air dryers now include System Saver® premium OE; WABCO Reman Solutions; and new ProVia™ quality aftermarket units. The company’s air dryer cartridge offering now comprises System Saver premium OE; new WABCO Essential™ mid-range; and Provia quality aftermarket cartridges. Each range of dryers and cartridges is engineered to offer best-in-class performance and value.
"WABCO has become a true single-source solution for aftermarket distributors, equipment dealers, independent service providers and fleets dedicated to improving uptime and ROI throughout the operating life of each vehicle,” said Abe Aon, WABCO North America Aftersales, Service & Support Leader. “Our OE leadership helps drive innovation, quality and value in every product installed in service bays across North America and our customers trust us to help support the bottom-line performance of today’s commercial fleets, no matter what type or size.”
