BRUSSELS, BELGIUM--(Marketwire - April 18, 2012) - WABCO Holdings Inc. (NYSE:WBC), (www.wabco-auto.com) a global technology leader and tier-one supplier to the commercial vehicle industry, today announced that from Q2 2011 to Q1 2012 the company has entered into contracts with customers globally totaling $570 million of expected cumulative incremental business from 2012 through 2016.
