A world-leading manufacturer of performance brake and clutch systems, AP Racing has opened its new state-of-the-art production facility. Visitors to the multi-million-pound, Coventry-based development included the Italian Ambassador to the UK, His Excellency, Raffaele Trombetta, Lord Mayor of Coventry, Cllr Linda Bigham, and senior delegates from Brembo S.p.A., AP Racing’s parent company.

David Hamblin, managing director at AP Racing, said: “We’re delighted to have been joined by so many esteemed delegates and colleagues, all here to celebrate the opening of our new production facility for OEM brake callipers, an important moment in the history of AP Racing

“The addition of this new facility comes at a very important time, as we look to capitalise on recent global growth and strive for product innovation, excellence and further growth across the rapidly changing market sectors in which we operate.”

The event included presentations from AP Racing and Brembo, who discussed the company’s growth, heritage and new capabilities alongside plans for the new development. Future plans include a new research & development area and a state-of-the-art Noise, Vibration & Harshness (NVH) dynamometer augmenting the company’s current brake and clutch testing capabilities.

The 2,700m2 development incorporates industry-leading technology for the manufacture of performance road car brake callipers, with the potential to expand further, adding further product lines going forward. It increases AP Racing’s production capacity while enabling it to achieve the highest levels of product traceability, quality and security – alongside offering the flexibility required to support the company’s full range, including motorsport and performance upgrade.
