industry, today announced that it will participate at FENATRAN 2013

braking systems (ABS) for trucks, buses and trailers; electronic
braking systems (EBS) for trailers, as well as a suite of intelligent
technologies and product innovations that help to make commercial
vehicles safer and more efficient.

diagnostic systems and genuine parts distribution through its network
of more than 2,000 WABCO Service Partners in over 110 countries,
including the continent of South America. 
"At FENATRAN 2013, we will showcase our industry-leading capabilities
in vehicle safety, efficiency and environmental sustainability to

deliver a world of difference through the innovative technologies,
global connectivity and service excellence that WABCO offers to local

WABCO joins FENATRAN 2013 as Brazil and South America are viewed as
growth markets driven by new vehicle safety regulations and
increasing concern for fuel efficiency, among other commercial
transport factors. For example, as of 2013, new vehicle and road
safety legislation in Brazil is in effect. It mandates ABS on 40
percent of trucks, buses, trailers and passenger cars manufactured
during 2013. From January 2014, all such vehicles must have ABS
installed.

control (ESC), conventional brake systems, transmission automation
controls and other safety and efficiency technologies. Established in
1980 and headquartered in Sumare, near Sao Paulo, WABCO South America
