Wabco unveiled a comprehensive brand, product, and technical service platform for North American aftermarket distributors, independent service garages, and fleets. The new aftermarket offering, launched in conjunction with Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) 2019, is designed to address the needs of customers throughout the vehicle ownership lifecycle.
The Wabco aftermarket brand and product portfolio encompasses Wabco original products, the same parts selected by original equipment manufacturers; Wabco Reman Solutions, featuring a full range of OE parts carefully remanufactured and upgraded to the latest performance specifications; MICO hydraulic components, controls and brake locks for medium and light duty vehicles; Sheppard commercial steering components; and ProVia quality aftermarket replacement parts for vehicles that are later in their service lifecycles.
The company further supports its customers via sales and technical training, diagnostic solutions, technical services, and parts ordering support. Each of these is offered through the recently launched Wabco Customer Care Center in Auburn Hills, Mich.
The official launch of the Wabco aftermarket platform is the latest of several significant company achievements in the North American market. In the past three years, Wabco has acquired four leading commercial vehicle industry suppliers: MICO Inc., Laydon Composites Ltd., R.H. Sheppard Co. Inc., and the remaining share of the former Meritor WabcoVehicle Control Systems joint venture. Former Meritor Wabco aftermarket parts – including air compressors, air dryers, braking systems, collision safety systems, electronically controlled air suspensions, and stability control systems – are distributed exclusively by Meritor in the U.S. and Canada and on a non-exclusive basis in Mexico.
