WABCO Holdings has extended its long-term agreement to supply air compressor technology for a major global manufacturer of trucks and buses in Europe. Under the agreement, valued at almost $100 million, WABCO will continue to supply the c-comp clutch compressors, as well as water-cooled w-comp and m-comp non-water-cooled crankcase air compressors, across Europe, the Americas and Asia.
WABCO’s 318cc and 636cc single and twin cylinder compressors feature either an integrated clutch or an Optimised Power Reduction system which reduces power consumption during the off-load phase. The water-cooled crankcase compressors significantly reduce oil carry-over and carbon build up resulting in lower maintenance costs.
“This important supply agreement clearly demonstrates the value our customers place on WABCO being able to meet their needs with industry-leading technology in all markets that they choose to operate in. WABCO’s globally proven air compressor design offers customers multiple benefits including a reduction in fuel and vehicle operating costs, as well as superior unit performance to value,” said Jorge Solis, WABCO President, Truck, Bus and Car OEM Division.
