Italian Braking Systems Specialist Constructs Factory in Thailand

March 2024

Brembo, an Italian company leader in braking systems, just commenced construction of its first production site in Thailand. The investment, totaling approximately EUR 40 million (USD 43 million), reflects the Group’s global strategy to expand its industrial presence and allows Brembo to seize new growth opportunities in the Southeast Asian region.

The new site will manufacture braking systems for motorcycle manufacturers in Thailand, starting with European and American producers. It will be located in the country’s motorcycle industry hub, the Rayong province, south of Bangkok. Once fully operational, the Brembo site will employ around 150 people.

The site is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2025, covering an area of approximately 17,000 square meters on a plot of land spanning about 40,000 square meters, expandable up to 95,000 square meters to facilitate future expansions.

This project complements Brembo’s recent investments in the motorcycle market, including the acquisitions of SBS Friction in Denmark and J.Juan in Spain between 2020 and 2021. These acquisitions have enabled the Group to enhance its two-wheeler product offerings. The motorcycle business currently accounts for approximately 13% of Brembo’s overall revenues.
