Quality and know-how from the inventor of the disc brake: In 1952, the British firm Lucas launched the first disc brake system and succeeded in setting the standard for vehicle brakes to this day. The American technology company TRW built Pioneer 1, the first satellite to be launched into space by NASA in 1958. Today, TRW is the market leader in Germany for brake pads and steel-braided brake lines. They also produce brake discs, clutch sets and chassis components. Multiple test wins in the trade press are convincing proof that you can rely on safety made by TRW.
