Sheppard currently offers a suite of power-steering gears that has set the industry standard for heavy-duty commercial and specialty vehicles.

Moving forward, Sheppard will be fully integrated into WABCO’s North America Business Unit, with its technology becoming part of WABCO’s Vehicle Dynamics and Controls Business.

“We are very excited to welcome Sheppard employees to the WABCO family,” said Jon Morrison, WABCO’s president for the Americas. “It’s the dedication and ingenuity of all its team members that have enabled Sheppard to emerge as a leader of world-class steering technologies over the past 80 years. As we grow together and combine WABCO’s and Sheppard’s industry-leading technologies, we will provide differentiating solutions for braking, stability and steering control to commercial vehicle manufacturers and fleet operators across the globe.”
