A Look at Brembo's North American Future

Brembo has determined that the North American market will be the its largest by the end of this year, and, as such, has been pouring $115 million into its largest U.S. facility – a 440,000-square-foot plant 100 miles west of Detroit in Homer, Mich. that manufactures brake, disc, caliper and corner modules.

“This expanded and modernized production facility represents a new foundation for Brembo in North America, enabling us to increase our presence in the U.S. market,” Alberto Bombassei, Brembo S.p.A. chairman, said during the grand reopening of the plant in late May.

The plant, of which Brembo took control in 2007 when it acquired the brakes discs division of wheel maker Hayes-Lemmerz, manufactured 10 million discs and 300,000 calipers and corner modules in 2013, and is expected to produce 12.5 million discs and 400,000 calipers and modules in 2014.
