WABCO

WABCO Holdings Inc., a leading global supplier of technologies that improve the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles, announced it will locate its new Americas headquarters to Auburn Hills, MI. The facility is currently under construction and is expected to open in the third quarter 2018.

The new, 102,000 square-foot facility represents a significant investment and demonstrates WABCO’s commitment to serve commercial vehicle manufacturers, fleet operators, and aftermarket customers in North America. WABCO has significantly expanded its presence in the region since its launch in 2007. Over the past two years alone, WABCO has tripled its workforce as it acquired four high-tech manufacturing businesses: MICO Inc., Laydon Composites Ltd., R.H. Sheppard Co. Inc., and the buyout of Meritor WABCO Vehicle Control Systems, the 50-50 joint venture with Meritor.

WABCO’s Americas headquarters will house approximately 200 employees when it opens, including employees who are currently located at separate sites in Rochester Hills and Troy, MI. The Company plans to increase employment prior to the opening and is forecasting to add as many as 90 professional jobs at the site during the next three years.

“WABCO’s investment in a new Americas headquarters reflects our leadership in technologies that advance the safety, efficiency and connectivity of commercial vehicles in this region,” said Jon Morrison, WABCO President, Americas. “We are driving dynamic growth and expansion in North America, and this new headquarters will enable our team to anticipate and respond to customer needs even better. In addition, the new office will now co-locate our talented teams, fostering seamless collaboration as we advance innovations to enable autonomous driving in the commercial vehicle industry.”

In addition to office space on two floors, the premises at 1220 Pacific Drive will feature a Customer Experience Center, a vehicle test lab, training center, and other amenities.
