BRUSSELS, Belgium and SHANGHAI, China, July 30, 2014 — WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE: WBC), a leading global supplier of technologies to improve the safety and efficiency of commercial vehicles, today announced that its Remanufacturing Solutions business has been named “Most Popular Remanufacturer” by the China Association of Remanufacturing (CAR) in association with Duxes, a leading remanufacturing consulting firm based in Shanghai. The award, which was presented recently at a ceremony in Shanghai attended by dignitaries from CAR and the Chinese National Development and Reform Commission, among other government and industry officials, recognizes WABCO Reman Solutions’ well established local presence in China as well as the company’s significant contributions to support the continued growth of China’s remanufacturing industry.
