Brembo expands to Thailand with new production site

The investment of approximately 40 million euros consolidates Brembo’s role as a Solution Provider and enables the Group to seize new opportunities in Southeast Asia.

Brembo, the global leader in braking systems, opens its first production site in Thailand. The investment, totaling approximately 40 million euros, reflects the Group’s strategy to expand its industrial presence globally 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 motorcycle industry hub of the country, situated in the Rayong province, south of the capital Bangkok. Once fully operational, the Brembo site will employ around 150 people.

“The opening of the new production site in Thailand is a crucial step in our global expansion strategy,” said Daniele Schillaci, Brembo CEO. “We strengthen our position in the key two-wheeler segment and consolidate Brembo’s role as a Solution Provider for our customers operating in the country. With this investment, we lay the groundwork for further developments of our business in the ASEAN region.”

On Friday, February 16, the local groundbreaking ceremony marked the commencement of construction work. 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 product offerings dedicated to two-wheelers. The motorcycle business currently accounts for approximately 13% of Brembo’s overall revenues.
