STEZZANO, Italy – Brembo, one of the world’s leading brake component manufacturer, has been named Best Brand 2020 in the brake category by the prestigious German monthly magazine Sport Auto.

The Italian company received 83.3 percent of the votes in the category and enjoyed the largest margin when compared to the second-place finisher in a contest determined by the magazine’s readers.

The company said about the award in a post on its Website:

Coming first for Brembo, both on-track and off-road, is always very satisfying.

But, in addition to its performance on the track, it is just as important to win the race that brands take part in every day to be foremost in the minds of consumers.

That is why it is so important when you are selected for your quality or popularity by a jury made up of the general public, especially when it consists of tens of thousands of people. ​
