WREXHAM, U.K. — Brake Engineering marked its 40th anniversary by inviting all staff at its Wrexham-based site to a Covid-safe event, celebrating the support, hard work and dedication of staff during the past four decades.

Started in 1981 by John Willis, the Brake Engineering brand has always had a reputation for doing things a little differently with a multi-discipline in manufacturing, remanufacturing and distribution.
