“Globalization of the marketplace, coupled with ever increasing pressure to shift to low-cost manufacturing centers emphasizes the requirement for increased and consistent controls in what is fundamentally a safety critical industry,” states James Hall. “With a combined approach, the Global Break Safety Council and its members should be striving to educate and advise legislative bodies on requirements for change and global alignment in order to further restrict the ability of poor quality and in some cases fraudulent manufacturers to deliver an unsafe product through to the consumer.”
The GBSC’s current Chairman, Scott Lambert said: “James is an accomplished braking executive with an in depth understanding of engineering, product development and comes with a proven track record of success within the braking industry. The GBSC’s mission has never been more relevant. We help raise worldwide awareness of the importance of safe braking through powerful industry connections and collaboration. James’ wealth of experience and knowledge will aid us in that mission.”
