Brembo joint venture to expand production capacity

Brembo SGL Carbon Ceramic Brakes (BSCCB), a joint venture between Brembo and SGL Carbon, will expand its production capacity to meet growing market demand for carbon ceramic brake discs for passenger cars and commercial vehicles.

BSCCB will invest around €150 million until 2027 to expand by more than 70 per cent production capacities at the sites in Meitingen in Germany and Stezzano in Italy.

The capacity enlargement includes the construction of two new production facilities at the SGL Carbon Meitingen site with a total area of around 8,500 square metres and the installation of new production machinery.

The groundbreaking in Meitingen will take place this autumn.

At the Stezzano site, production areas will be extended by around 4,000 square metres to existing buildings and investments will be made in new production machinery.
