Founded in 1978, the EBC Brakes Group is still a private company owned exclusively by the current managing director Andy Freeman. From its early days of being one of the pioneers of the disc brake pad aftermarket for motorcycles since they were first introduced on motorcycles in 1976, EBC Brakes has grown to be a worldwide group with strengths in every area of the brake industry. Pioneers in the true sense of the word, describes the EBC Group. Having successfully dominated the motorcycle industry with majority market shares in most western markets, EBC Brakes has developed a huge range of brakes for mountain bikes, automobiles, race and rally cars, vans, trucks, buses, commercial vehicles and even mainline locomotives.
Being also the last truly independent British friction materials manufacturer, EBC Brakes has manufacturing facilities in Northampton & Bristol, England as well as Cleveland, Ohio in the United States. EBC products are distributed throughout the world with distributors in many countries.
