WABCO's roots and rich history
A Rich History
WABCO’s roots are deep and strong. They go back nearly 150 years to the invention of the revolutionary air brake system by George Westinghouse in 1869. This technological breakthrough greatly improved the safety and performance of the US national railways.
That same year, engineering genius George founded the Westinghouse Air Brake Company (WABCO), which flourished for the next century. It also expanded way beyond railway technology – making major advances for the commercial vehicle industry in Europe and North America.
In 1968, WABCO was acquired by American Standard Companies Inc. and on August 1, 2007, WABCO became an independent public company listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the stock symbol WBC.
