No Stopping Repco's Unrivalled Braking Solutions
The investment, part of the Repco's Even More Parts for Even More Cars program, has reinforced Repco as the leader in unrivalled braking solutions and a specialist in parts for the increasing number of European vehicles within the Australian car parc.
"When it comes to braking, dependability is key, Repco's brake program is all about quality, reliability and choice, offering our customers real affordable solutions to meet and suit their needs," said Gary Dunwell, Executive General Manager of Repco Australia & Strategic Marketing and Merchandise Australia and New Zealand.
"We are number one in Auto Parts and there is no exception when it comes to our Braking category. We proudly source from the World's leading manufacturers, bringing a sense of global confidence and quality assurance to our range."
Repco's $15 million investment in braking parts includes the launch of the TRW European Braking Program featuring both Brake Pads and Disc Rotors.
Repco's Market-Leading 5 Tier Brake Pad Range
Repco offers customer an extensive five-tier brake pad program including Bendix, TRW, Repco, Silverline and Tru Stop.
Repco has partnered with the leader in European Aftermarket Friction, TRW, to launch the most complete European Friction Program in Australia, providing for 98% car parc coverage. Repco's partnership with the European Leader in Braking Technology, TRW, means they can now provide their customers with a market leading program to support the growing European car parc in Australia.
The new Euro Brake Pad program will complement Repco's existing range of Brake Pads and Rotors. Repco's extensive European braking range from TRW will consist of over 600 part numbers in brake pads and 500 part numbers in brake rotors. This new and improved range will now allow Repco to service more than 8000 vehicle applications. Utilising COTEC technology, Repco's TRW Brake Pad range is coated with a specialist treatment reducing the need for mechanics or the driver to bed in the pads by providing optimum performance from the very first stop. Results from independent tests have proven TRW Brake Pads to stop in some cases up to four meters faster when compared to the competition in the first five stops.
Repco offers the dependability and durability of Bendix, Australia's leading brake specialist. Manufactured using Ceramic Friction formulation and Blue Titanium Stripe Technology, benefits include high fade resistance, enhanced durability, quieter braking and less dust. Bendix has a comprehensive range of brake pads to cater for the different style and vehicle application.
Repco ThermoQuiet (TQ) brake pads are revolutionary Original Equipment (OE) Quality one-piece brake pad sourced from the world leader in brake friction, Federal-Mogul. The patented Integrally Moulded Insulator (IMITM) Sound InsulatorTM along with superior friction formulation produce one of the most sophisticated products currently on the market.
The IMITM one-piece brake pad design removes the need for conventional shims, instead incorporating the friction material, the backing plate and the insulator into a single, high-strength component.
For the mid segment, the Ceramic Technology from TruStop brake pads provides dependable braking performance, less dust and safe and smooth stopping. All Tru Stop brake pads are fitted with Silent GuardTM shims designed for sound dampening and reduced vibration brake pads.
Silverline's pads provide customers with good quality pads at a great price. The extensive range is suitable for older and base model vehicle applications
Repco's Three-Tier Disc Rotor Range
To complement the Brake Pad Program, Repco offers customers a three-tier Disc Brake Rotor program, devised to meet with all customer needs providing Even More Choice with Even More Brands.
Best OE Quality
Expanding on the TRW Euro Brake Pad program , the TRW Disc Rotor Range has increased by over 300 part numbers taking the total part numbers of Disc Rotors to over 1000 covering 95% of the vehicle population in Australia.
Repco's own solid and dependable range of disc rotors has expanded to over 200 part numbers, offering customers a direct replacement for OE with a premium quality product at a better price. All Repco disc rotors are manufactured using high quality cast iron.
For the high performance street and track driven vehicles, DBA provides specialist products using Kangaroo PawTM technology: a 144 diamond and tear drop pillar ventilation system which increases the surface area to in turn minimise brake fade and increase braking efficiency.
