Today the foundation stone was laid for the new factory dedicated to the processing of carbon special materials that will compete on the tracks all over the world
The Chairman of Brembo SpA Alberto Bombassei has placed today at Curno the first stone of the new building that will host the “Carbon Factory”, the flagship of the company for the processing of carbon fiber materials for competition use.
The new plant is dedicated to the design, development and production of the company’s competition carbon brake pads and discs. This all-new green field operation verticalizes the carbon brake process under one roof.
The new factory is an addition to the Brembo operations already existing in Curno where the company already develops and finishes braking components for racing.
The new building will occupy an area of approximately 7,000 square meters (23,000 sq./ft.), in addition to 10,000 square meters (33,000 sq./ft.) for green areas, parking, logistics and storage areas planned by the project.
Construction is scheduled to be completed completion by the end of 2018, with production activities expected to be fully operational by the end of 2019. In the “Carbon Factory” Brembo will produce semi-finished carbon-carbon discs and pads – different from the carbon-ceramic discs destined to super-performing road cars, produced at Stezzano and in Germany.
The new facilities production will be dedicated to equip the cars and the motorcycles of the teams competing in all the main motor racing disciplines, starting from Formula One and MotoGP.
