BARCELONA — J.Juan has relocated most of its production of high-quality stainless-steel brake hoses from its headquarters to its facility in St. Cugat (Barcelona).

“We did so in just a week without disrupting supply to any of our clients worldwide. Right now, our plant in St. Cugat houses the production of both our braided stainless-steel brake hoses and our brake systems,” a company spokesperson said.

After 23 years working at full steam, time has come for the floor of the production plant at the company’s headquarters in Gavà to be both reworked and improved as we expect increased production for the coming years.

With a revenue of €103 million in 2022, J.Juan keeps investing in its future as production increases and its brands J.Juan and Braktec expand.

J.Juan is a world leader in the manufacture of meshed metallic hydraulic tubes and the second European manufacturer of motorcycle brakes. It is a company founded in 1965 in Barcelona and employs 640 people directly. The company is part of the Brembo Group, world leader of brake technology, founded in 1961 in Bergamo (Italy), with more than 12.000 employees in 15 countries on threee continents, with 29 production and business sites.
