Brembo opens new carbon factory in Curno
On 13 February the chairman of Brembo SpA Alberto Bombassei placed the first stone of a new building that will host Brembo’s Carbon Factory, the flagship of the company for the processing of carbon fibre materials for competition use.
The new facility is dedicated to the design, development and production of the company’s competition carbon brake pads and discs. This all-new green field operation vertically integrates the carbon brake process under one roof. The new facility is an addition to the existing Brembo operations in Curno where the company already develops and finishes braking components for racing.
The new building will occupy an area of approximately 7,000 square metres (23,000 sq./ft.), in addition to 10,000 square metres (33,000 sq./ft.) for green areas, parking, logistics and storage areas. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018, with production activities expected to be fully operational by the end of 2019.
The new facilities production will be dedicated to equip the cars and the motorcycles of the teams competing in all the main motor racing disciplines, starting from Formula One and MotoGP.
