Wabco To Supply Electronic Brake Systems To Kamaz

Posted on September 9, 2013

Wabco Holdings announced that it has further expanded its relationship with Kamaz, one of the largest manufacturers of commercial vehicles in Russia. Starting from September, Wabco will supply its newest generation of electronic braking systems (EBS) with integrated electronic stability control (ESC) for series production on Kamaz’s new truck platform.

This additional business also marks the first time in the commercial vehicle industry in Russia that a local truck manufacturer adopts advanced EBS and ESC technologies in series production, Wabco said.

Kamaz has also engaged Wabco to supply its latest generation of electronically controlled air suspension (ECAS). Wabco began supplying ECAS to Kamaz in 2007.

Wabco has supplied anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and components for braking controls to Kamaz for more than a decade. Based on results of a tender earlier this year, Wabco has become Kamaz’s sole supplier of ABS.
