BPI recently completed a comprehensive restructuring of its global manufacturing footprint in best-cost countries investing in new world-class, state-of-the-art operations, incorporating lean manufacturing principles for optimum quality consistency and maximum productivity and efficiency. Equally important in the BPI global strategy is a strong commitment and dedication to research, development and testing to ensure entire offering of friction, drums and rotors, calipers and hydraulic products meet or exceed original equipment fit, form and function specifications and performance requirements, the company noted.

“We are in one of the most dynamic categories in the global automotive aftermarket,” said Overbeeke. “We are dedicated to continuous improvement in everything we do, each and every day in order to meet the demands of our highly valued customers.”
