WABCO opens disc brake, compressor facility

March 27, 2017 by John Smith

LOUISVILLE, KY – WABCO has opened the doors to a new US $20-million facility in South Carolina that will for the first time give it a place to build air disc brakes in the U.S.

The 145,000-square-foot facility employs 230 people.

The manufacturing facility is 60% larger than a previous Charleston location that made air compressors, and will continue that work by producing single- and twin-cylinder models under a joint venture with Cummins, first established in 1998.

But it also has the capacity to produce about 200,000 air brake units per year, says Jon Morrison, president – Americas. In five years, he predicts the market for those products will be double what it is today, in part because of the rollout of active safety systems.
