Wabco to supply heavy duty power steering system to Tata Motors

Wabco, the leading global supplier of technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles, today announced its first major steering system deal in India, with Tata Motors, following its September 2017 acquisition of U.S.-based RH Sheppard, a key supplier of industry-leading steering technologies for commercial vehicles.

In line with its growth strategy to expand and to globalise its steering business beyond the US, this latest supply agreement with India’s commercial vehicle market leader Tata Motors in India represents an important first milestone in delivering leading steering solutions to customers internationally.

As a full systems Tier 1 supplier to Tata Motors, Wabco will supply its hydraulic power steering systems, helping the CV maker to meet increasing demand for new heavy-duty trucks locally following recent legislation changes to restrict axle weight loads.

Wabco’s M110 heavy-duty hydraulic power steering gears and assemblies meet Tata Motors' power-steering performance and reliability requirements. M-Series gears have been the industry design standard since 1986 and use the highest quality materials and components manufactured to extremely rigorous tolerances.

“This landmark steering technology agreement with Tata Motors in India is another example of Wabco’s powerful ability to globalize our rich technology portfolio,” said Jorge Solis, Wabco president, Truck, Bus and Car OEM Division. “Further augmenting our advanced driver assistance and braking systems with our industry-leading steering capability makes Wabco uniquely placed to serve OEMs in every market.”

“We are delighted that the introduction of Wabco’s industry-leading steering systems for the first time in India further differentiates our strong partnership with Tata Motors, while helping them to meet this additional level of demand,” added P Kaniappan, Wabco India managing director. “As the only commercial vehicle supplier able to offer both braking and steering capabilities in India, Wabco is uniquely placed to provide our customers with increasingly higher levels of automation.”
