Disc brakes specialist wins £100m order at expense of its main competitor

Surface Transforms, the Knowsley-based specialist high performance brakes manufacturer, has been awarded a £100m contract by an automotive client.

The group makes brakes for high performance cars and jet aircraft.

It said the £100m deal to provide a carbon ceramic brake disc for the client, previously described as “OEM 10”, is the single largest contract awarded to date. But, it said, it crucially sees Surface Transforms discs replacing those historically provided by its main competitor.

Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use.
