WABCO Named ATA Corporate Partner

[ February 18, 2016   //   ]

American Trucking Associations announced WABCO as an ATA Corporate Partner, in recognition of its long-term commitment to ATA and the trucking industry. Founded nearly 150 years ago, WABCO is a leading supplier of technologies that improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles.

“WABCO provides the trucking industry with advanced safety and efficiency technologies that help save lives and increase productivity,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. “Many ATA members and their employees have directly benefited from WABCO’s leading solutions to some of the trucking industry’s greatest challenges.”

ATA and WABCO have a long-standing partnership, continually working to improve safety and efficiency in the trucking industry. Since its founding as the Westinghouse Air Brake Company, WABCO has served the commercial trucking industry and continues to provide advanced safety products to truck, buses, and trailers around the world.

WABCO’s OnGuard is North America’s leading collision mitigation system, with more than 90,000 systems sold and over 32 billion miles now on the road. OnGuard detects moving, stopping or stationary vehicles ahead and alerts the driver of a possible rear-end collision with audible, visual and haptic warnings. Should the driver be unable to take preventative action, OnGuard automatically applies the brakes slowing down the vehicle or bringing it to a complete stop to mitigate or avoid a rear-end collision.

In addition, WABCO’s line of air disc brakes offers a number of advantages over traditional drum brakes, including better braking performance, lighter weight, fewer parts and shorter service intervals.
