Wabco Holdings Inc, Brussels, Belgium, a tier-one supplier to the commercial vehicle industry, has begun construction on its new Engineering Innovation Centre in Hannover, Germany.

The centre is expected to open in 2018, and will be staffed by approximately 450 employees over an area of 11,500 m2 and will be equipped with the latest technologies and systems for commercial vehicles. Wabco has expressed its hope that the new centre will play a significant role in the development of new solutions that support the commercial vehicle industry.

In addition to laboratories and test rooms, the centre will feature new office spaces which Wabco expects to aid in the efficient cooperation of various product development teams across the company. Wabco’s advanced development department, which is concerned with future projects such as e-mobility and automated driving, will also make the move to the new centre.

“With the investment in the Engineering Innovation Centre we are setting new standards for a modern engineering environment which will enable the development of many new efficient systems and innovative solutions. At the same time, we are strengthening Wabco’s position as a technology leader due to additional product development capacities and the flexible infrastructure that will be created here,” stated Juergen Heller, Managing Director at Wabco Germany.

“The Engineering Innovation Centre will be the new hub of our product development,” added Dr Christian Wiehen, Wabco’s Chief Technology Officer. “We are looking forward to working on the next generation of technologies that make commercial vehicles even safer and thus help to save lives.”
