A history of first-to-market applications for brakes

Quick to bring the right parts to the aftermarket in the shortest possible timeframe, Delphi Technologies has a history of first-to-market brake pads.

For both the Land Rover and Volkswagen applications, the company achieved a milestone in speed to market by being quicker than the vehicle manufacturer.

“As a manufacturer of the pioneering propulsion technology fitted as OE to many of these vehicles, we work hand-in-hand with the world’s leading automakers, years before launch,” adds Tibbert. “And by combining the best of both worlds – OE technological leadership and innovative aftermarket solutions – we can always be one step ahead on new product introductions coming to the aftermarket.”
