Motorcar Parts of America, Inc. recently formally announced that brake caliper production has commenced at the company’s recently opened 370,000-sq.-ft., state-of-the-art facilities located in Tijuana, Mexico.
“The launch of the caliper operation represents the achievement of an important milestone for the company, as our product categories continue to expand,” said Selwyn Joffe, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Motorcar Parts of America, Inc.
The company’s replacement brake calipers are engineered and manufactured to fit and perform like original equipment.
The brake calipers feature a specially formulated zinc-dichromate finish designed to provide superior corrosion protection in the harshest environments. The OE-style plated coating is tested for 72 hours with continuous salt-spray exposure to evaluate lasting corrosion protection. The company’s premium brake caliper program, by application, provides 100 percent replacement with new phenolic pistons, ensuring worry-free performance. For a complete repair solution, each caliper unit is assembled with 100 percent new dust boots and EPDM rubber seals, and includes application-specific brake pad installation hardware and application-specific brackets.
