Braking specialists Brembo, has laid the foundation stone for a new factory dedicated to the processing of carbon special materials that will compete on the tracks all over the world
The Chairman of Brembo SpA, Alberto Bombassei laid the first stone at the flagship new building in Curno, Italy, that will process carbon fibre materials for competition use.
The new facility is dedicated to the design, development and production of the company’s competition carbon brake pads and discs. This all-new green field operation brings the carbon brake process under one roof. The new facility is an addition to the Brembo operations already existing in Curno where the company already develops and finishes braking components for racing.
The new building will occupy an area of approximately 7,000 square meters in addition to 10,000 square meters for green areas, parking, logistics and storage areas. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018, with production activities expected to be fully operational by the end of 2019.
Brembo will produce semi-finished carbon-carbon discs and pads – different from the carbon-ceramic discs destined for super-performing road cars, produced at Stezzano and in Germany. The new facilities production will be dedicated to equip the cars and the motorcycles of the teams competing in all the main motor racing disciplines, starting from Formula One and MotoGP.
