Meneta Group Celebrates 70 Years of Innovation

Meneta Group, a leading supplier of high-quality braking components to the automotive industry, is celebrating its 70th anniversary. Since its inception as a local toolmaker shop in 1953, the company has expanded into a global network of companies with a presence in several countries, including Denmark, India, China, Germany, and the United States.

The company’s success can be attributed to its commitment to quality, reliability, and innovation, which are critical when it comes to passenger safety and comfort. Meneta’s history is marked by several notable achievements that have helped the company establish its reputation as a leading supplier to the automotive industry.

One of the most significant milestones in Meneta’s history occurred in the 1970s when Roulunds Braking became its largest customer. Meneta began supplying high-quality backing plates, and with the introduction of fine blanking, production expanded to include other industrial components for hi-fi speakers, doors, windows, and other applications.

The issue of noise reduction in brake systems was another area where Meneta made significant contributions. The company’s engineers built their very first noise-testing machine in 1992, and produced their first noise-damping shim in 1994. In more recent years, Meneta has developed unique simulation tools, the Meneta Black Box ™ and the Meneta Virtual Dyno ™, which can help find noise-damping solutions much faster than traditional methods. Since 2018, Meneta is the world’s first and only shim manufacturer with both calendered and liquid rubber technology in-house.

In recent years, Meneta has also been focused on sustainability, setting ambitious goals to reduce CO2e emissions and become a net-zero carbon company. The company’s sustainability journey has been driven by its commitment to environmental responsibility, which has become an increasingly important issue for the automotive industry.

Meneta’s 70th anniversary is an opportunity to reflect on the company’s rich history and celebrate its many achievements. It is also an opportunity to look forward to the future and the new challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. With a commitment to innovation, quality, and sustainability, the company is well-positioned to continue to be a leading supplier to the automotive industry for many years to come.
