The year 2018 is a very
important one for the growth of Brembo operations in India, where the company
works exclusively for the two-wheeled market, driven by the recent introduction
of new safety regulations that require the use of higher performance braking
systems on all small and large engine motorcycles sold in the country.
In fact, in addition to
celebrating ten years of production presence since the acquisition in 2008 of
all the shares of the Indian KBX Joint Venture from Bosch, Brembo Brakes India
- a subsidiary of Brembo SpA - the company announced the beginning of work to
build a new plant in Chennai for motorcycle braking system assembly.
Brembo, which operates in
India with the ByBre (“By-Brembo”) brand developed for the mass market and
already boasting more than 50% of the market share in the two-wheel segment,
anticipates further growth due to the Indian government's introduction of new
legislation which, from next month, will make combined braking systems (with
front disc and rear drum) mandatory for vehicles with engine displacement lower
than 125cc, as well as ABS, which Brembo will integrate into its braking
systems on all vehicles with engine displacement over 125cc.
Construction of the new plant,
which will be completed within the year and which falls under the 2018
investment plan of about €9 million (Rs 71.9 crore) that the company has launched for process
expansion and innovation in the existing Chakan (Pune) and Manesar plants, will
allow Brembo to further consolidate the quality of the ByBre brand products and
technical collaboration with customers in the Chennai region.
