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.

Brembo, the global leader in braking systems, has opened its first production site in Thailand. The investment, totalling approximately EUR 40 million, 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. 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,” Daniele Schillaci, Brembo CEO, said.

On Friday, February 16, the local ground-breaking 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.
