Wabco to supply AMT valves to European OEM 12 January 2018

Wabco has signed a deal with a major European truck and bus manufacturer to supply automated manual transmission (AMT) valve technology.

Belgium-based Wabco says it will support the unnamed OEM’s future series production as the sole supplier, primarily in Europe and South America. It has production and supply chain capability close to the sites where the manufacturer plans to produce new gearbox and transmissions.

As well as making vehicles easier to drive, Wabco says its AMT technology means reduced mechanical wear on gearboxes, lower maintenance costs and less vehicle downtime.

Jorge Solis, president of Wabco’s truck, bus and car OEM division, describes it as a “significant supply agreement”, adding: “Wabco’s technology leadership in automated manual transmission offers multiple benefits to our clients, including a reduction in fuel costs and increased safety and driver comfort.”
