Brake Engineering pads and discs now available in Irish market

Having been a sister business of TRW for over 15 years, more recently within the ZF Group, Brake Engineering has grown from being the leading UK Brake Caliper re-manufacturer into a complete braking solution provider.

This includes a market leading brake pd proposition, manufactured in the EU, alongside a comprehensive disc, drum, shoe and caliper programme.

In Ireland, Brake Engineering has partnered with CD Group to bring this complete braking solution to market.

Terry Knox, Managing Director of CD Group said: “With a strong history as a braking supplier to the Irish market, we understand what our customers need.

“Bringing the Brake Engineering programme to market is really exciting, as we know it delivers what is needed.

“The Pad programme is all manufactured in Spain to a high quality, in factories we know and trust.

“With a wide range, a good catalogue, a competitive market position, and excellent commitment to new to range development, it is a very compelling proposition, and we are pleased to have already appointed a number of stockists.”

The comprehensive range of Brake Engineering Pads is supported by the complimentary range of discs.

Knox continued: “The trade in Ireland will know the Brake Engineering brand as a leading range of quality Calipers.

“As their Distributor we are delighted to not only stock the full range of the Calipers but also to work with ZF to fill out the friction portfolio so that it fulfils the needs of our customers on range and quality.

“The complete braking solution from Brake Engineering is now available from all three of our sites on the island of Ireland.”

Martyn Houghton, country manager of ZF UK added: “As an existing customer with our Sachs brand, CD Group are well known to ZF Group not only in UK & Ireland but also in Europe.

“We have long been aware of their strength as a supplier of Brake Friction, making them the ideal candidate to bring our complete Brake Engineering solution to market.

“Given their position as a stable independent, family-owned business we recognise the values that CD Group bring to the table and look forward to a mutually successful long-term partnership moving forward.”
