Chassis Brakes International benefits from a strong expertise gained throughout years in the foundation brakes industry under different banners
Our history started in the 30s, when Vincent Bendix acquired the rights to French engineer Henri Perrot’s patents for drum brakes. Bendix Corporation was then created in the USA and launched the manufacture of 4 independent wheels braking system s. In 1983, Bendix was acquired by the Allied Corporation later named Allied Signal Inc.
In 1996, Robert Bosch Gmbh acquired the brake business of Allied Signal Inc. This particular milestone turned the company into a systems supplier of complete braking and brake control systems for vehicles.
In June 2012, Chassis Brakes International is born from the sale of Bosch Foundation Brakes activity to KPS Capital Partners, LP and we are now one of the world’s largest manufacturers of automotive foundation brakes and foundation brake components.
