The Westinghouse Air Brake Company (WABCO) was founded on September 28, 1869 by George Westinghouse in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania..
Haulpak was a very successful line of off-highway mining trucks. The name was used from 1953 until around 1999; the line continues under the Komatsu name. The name was adopted as Wabco Haulpak when R. G. LeTourneau's business was bought by Wabco, and the Haulpak name continued through Wabco's purchase by American Standard, the operation's purchase by Dresser Industries, the merger into Komatsu-Dresser, and for a time after Komatsu took over complete ownership from Dresser.
Before WABCO, it was impossible to stop a train in an emergency. The company's founder, George Westinghouse, invented the air brake in 1868. The global auto parts maker designs and sells braking, stability, suspension, and transmission control systems for heavy-duty trucks, trailers, buses, SUVs, and luxury cars, such as AUDI and Mercedes-Benz. It also makes shock absorbers, cruise control components, and tire pressure monitors. The company's products are sold directly to auto and component manufacturers, including Ford, GMC, Nissan, Volvo, and Volkswagen, while spare parts are sold through independent aftermarket dealers. WABCO gets about three-quarters of its sales in Europe.
