Wabco Holdings Inc. has laid the foundation stone for its new Engineering Innovation Centre in Hanover, Germany. With this investment in the facility the company further strengthens its position as a global technology leader. The innovation centre will play a significant role in the development of new solutions that support the commercial vehicle industry to pave the way towards more connected and automated driving and create safer and more efficient trucks, buses and trailers. In addition to laboratories and test rooms, innovative office spaces will be created, helping to make the cooperation of various product development teams even more efficient. In order to continuously advance an atmosphere of creativity, a team of engineers was involved in the designing process of the new offices. Also situated in the Innovation Centre will be WABCO’s advanced development department, which works on future projects such as e-mobility and automated driving in the commercial vehicle sector. WABCO invests approximately 25 million Euros in the construction of the Engineering Innovation Centre.
