TROY, Mich. — Meritor WABCO Vehicle Control Systems, the joint venture between ArvinMeritor and WABCO, has expanded its commercial vehicle brake products portfolio with the addition of innovative air disc brakes from both partner companies.
The joint venture becomes the exclusive North American source of WABCO’s new generation, lightweight single piston air disc brake. In addition, Meritor WABCO will offer the Meritor brand EX225 air disc brake family, designed for severe service conditions.
Effective immediately, the expanded product portfolio enables North American customers to select from one of the most innovative and complete braking systems in the marketplace; incorporating the leading products like ABS, stability control systems, air dryers, compressors, and now air disc brakes.
“Customers will now have access to a comprehensive selection of the latest technology in braking systems for medium- and heavy-duty trucks, trailers, and bus applications,” said Jon Morrison, general manager of Meritor WABCO. “The expanded product portfolio and collaboration between the two partners is also an important signal to the North American market of the partners’ strong commitment to the joint venture.”
This first step bolsters the joint venture’s ability to lead the market’s transition to disc brakes in preparation for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shorter stopping distance regulations.
