AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE: WBC), the leading global supplier of braking control systems and other advanced technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles, announced the launch of the WABCO Service Partner (WSP) program in North America.
Through this initiative, the company will certify vehicle service facilities that meet WABCO’s stringent technical and safety standards in the maintenance and repair of commercial vehicles. This launch represents an enhancement to the company’s aftermarket support offering, which was introduced at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) earlier this year.
The WSP program creates a network of certified service facilities that have undergone specialized training by WABCO technical experts to attain extensive knowledge of the company’s products and services. Certified WSPs provide service, repair or replacement of WABCO’s suite of products for trucks, trailers, off-road equipment and other vehicles including buses and RVs.
“To become a WABCO Service Partner, a facility must excel in all areas of training and safety standards and be a proven industry leader in the work they do,” said Abe Aon, Business Leader, North America Aftersales, Service and Support. “Customers can rest assured that if service is done by a WSP, it is done by a highly trained, WABCO-endorsed provider.”
The WSP program’s goal is to increase uptime for its customers, getting them back on the road as quickly as possible, and providing peace of mind that the service was done by a certified facility. All WSPs have access to WABCO Customer Care Center and expedited warranty claims handling to provide customers with quick and reliable service.
