Wabco’s investment in Turkey has grown significantly in recent years. The new manufacturing facility follows the October 2018 opening of Wabco’s distribution centre in Istanbul. Additionally, in 2011, Wabco opened an international sourcing and purchasing office in Istanbul which currently purchases over $50 million of parts and sub-assemblies from a wide range of Turkish suppliers annually.“The new manufacturing facility will enable Wabco to leverage the local manufacturing talent base and benefit from the country’s exceptional infrastructure and logistics capabilities. This will allow us to further strengthen our customer intimacy locally as well as export products from Turkey across Europe and the Middle East to further enhance Wabco’s competitiveness in those regions,” said Nick Rens, Wabco President EMEA.
“The new facility will allow Wabco to progressively localise the manufacturing of its products supporting the local market. This will further enhance our service to local customers by delivering high quality, cost efficient products with agility, speed and flexibility,” said Kazim Eryilmaz, Wabco country leader-Turkey.
