Wabco Holdings Inc., a leading
global supplier of technologies and services, has announced that it has
extended its long-term agreement with Russian truck manufacturer Kamaz to
supply a comprehensive range of advanced technologies, including Wabco’s
breakthrough modular braking system platform (mBSP) for anti-lock braking (ABS)
and electronic braking systems (EBS).
This major agreement will support Kamaz’s
series production in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS),
resulting in new incremental business for Wabco, including Wabco’s support as
sole supplier for Kamaz’s newest heavy-duty vehicle platform.
Headquartered in Russia, Kamaz
is the country’s largest manufacturer of heavy-duty trucks. It produces a wide
range of trucks, tractors and dump trucks whose new generation performs at
world-class standards for vehicle safety, efficiency and electronic
Introduced in 2014 as an
industry-first technological breakthrough, Wabco’s mBSP enables vehicle makers
to flexibly equip their global truck and bus platforms with either ABS or EBS
anywhere in the world. By avoiding different braking configurations, Wabco’s mBSP
saves development time, reduces design overhead and lowers production costs for
original equipment manufacturers.
Based on results of a tender,
this extended agreement marks further expansion of Wabco’s partnership with Kamaz
for supply of ABS and EBS, automatic traction control, electronic stability
control (ESC), and OptiRide electronically controlled air suspension (ECAS).
Local Wabco application engineers support Kamaz throughout product development
and completion of successful homologation. In addition, it is planned that Wabco’s
factory in Russia will produce braking-related components, which further
differentiates Wabco through localisation.
Headquartered in Moscow, Wabco
Russia has been supplying Kamaz for more than 15 years. Wabco has been serving
original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket customers within the
Commonwealth of Independent States for more than 40 years.
“We are proud to extend and
further expand our long-term partnership with Kamaz, particularly as we have
earned their preference as sole supplier to help prepare for their newest
heavy-duty truck platform,” said Dmitri Medvedev, Wabco Business Leader, Russia
“Our technology leadership
differentiates WABCO as we mobilize vehicle intelligence at optimal cost to
continually improve commercial vehicle safety and efficiency through increased
connectivity and systems integration to support driving automation,” he further
