WABCO Core Program

May 02, 2022

Effective 4/4/2022 WABCO has initiated a core program for Electronic Control Units (ECU)’s and NEW air compressors. This will affect all WABCO ECU and New Air Compressor part numbers distributed by Stoughton Parts Sales.

Effective May 2, 2022, When purchasing these items from Stoughton Parts Sales, a core part number and charge line will be added to your Order and Invoice.
A core “bank” will be established at time of shipment. The core bank expires 11 months after original invoice date. In other words, you have 11 months to return cores against each invoice bank.

There are also very specific guidelines around how cores being returned should be packaged and what will be accepted for credit by WABCO.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact your sales representative or Michelle Haworth at

How to return cores:
1. Email and include:
  a. PO used
  b. Stoughton Invoice #
  c. Item # (of the Wabco product)
  d. Core Quantity to return
