FDP Friction Science, based in Virginia, provides premium quality brake kits, calipers, rotors, brake pads and all the hardware for today’s most popular vehicles, from daily drivers to SUVs as well as light trucks. This line of brakes is backed by a national warranty, engineering excellence and decades of production experience.

The brake pads are manufactured in the U.S. using a proprietary green production process by a company with more than 50 years of experience in friction science. Calipers are remanufactured in North America, and today a majority of that manufacturing process has returned to the United States, bringing important manufacturing jobs back to the American economy.


“We’re very proud to have manufactured our brake pads in Virginia for many years,” said John Carney, vice president of sales for FDP Friction Science. “We employ some 150 team members at our facility and contribute to hundreds of additional jobs in the community as well as incremental economic impact. We look forward to supporting the ‘Buy American’ movement to rebuild American manufacturing and help all U.S. manufacturers compete against global competitors.”

FDP Friction Science noted that it has a full assortment of U.S.-amade brake pads and shoes available to meet replacement needs on the standard sedans, SUVs, vans and trucks used in government and fleet programs as well as consumer vehicles.
