Farmington Hills’ Chassis Brakes International to Begin Production in NAFTA Region


Farmington Hills-based Chassis Brakes International, a global manufacturer of automotive brake systems and components, has announced production of brake calipers and rotors will begin at a new plant in Queretaro, Mexico for two major automakers with assembly operations in Mexico and the United States.

Volume production at the 100,000-square foot facility will begin in April, and production capacity is expected to reach 8,500 units per day by 2020.

The Queretaro plant is Chassis Brakes’ first North American manufacturing facility. The company plans to double the plant’s size over the next five years, as well as seek out additional production sites to support sales growth throughout the region.

“We are establishing production in North America to meet the needs of our automotive customers in the NAFTA region,” says Dennis Berry, president for the Chassis Brakes’ Americas region. “Our goal is to not only support existing business, but also to grow organically across customer lines and industry vehicle segments.”

Chassis Brakes International produces disc brakes, drum brakes, electro-mechanical parking brakes, and rotors for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. The company’s portfolio of clients includes Ford Motor Co., FCA US, Toyota, Daimler, Renault, BMW, and more.
