Centric Parts Opens New Brake Pad Assembly Plant
CENTRIC PARTS OPENS NEW BRAKE PAD ASSEMBLY PLANT
Los Angeles (August 2009) – Centric Parts, a leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket brake components and systems for everyday cars, performance-duty vehicles and ultra-performance vehicles, has opened a new 40,000 square foot brake pad assembly plant located in Carson, California.
“Centric’s brake pad sales continue to grow at an unprecedented rate,” explains Dan Lelchuk, President of Centric Parts. To support that continued growth now and in the future, this division has been moved to a stand-alone facility.” Centric Parts offers several brake pad lines including Posi Quiet Premium, Centric Premium, and C-Tek, along with OE brake pads.
“The amount of value-added production that Centric Parts performs internally is largely unseen by our customers,” notes Lelchuk. “Our premium brake pad programs require scorching, shim and clip assembly, and wear sensor attachment in specific applications. This new Centric Parts facility adds necessary production capacity and keeps these jobs here in North America.”
Centric Parts (www.centricparts.com), a Southern California company that includes StopTech and Power Slot, was founded in 2000. The company has experienced solid growth every year since. Centric Parts now operates multiple warehouse and manufacturing facilities totaling 473,000 square feet and exceeds 500 employees.
Centric Parts continually innovates improvements to brake technology for the street and track, delivering products that provide superior performance, quality and value. Centric Parts offerings include PosiQuiet premium Metallic, Ceramic and Extended Wear formulas, an OE product line, plus Axxis and C-TEK standard grade materials. StopTech (www.stoptech.com), Centric’s ultra-performance division, is a leading innovator of world class brake components and systems for production-based racing cars and high performance vehicles on the street and track. Power Slot (www.powerslot.com), Centric Parts’ performance division, focuses on entry level brake upgrade solutions and pioneered direct fit performance rotors for trucks, SUVs and severe duty vehicles.
