Compton, Calif. - (October 2011) StopTech ®, the ultra performance and racing division of Centric Parts ®, announces the addition of high performance AeroRotor ® brake rotor manufacturing to its production facility in Compton, California. The patented StopTech AeroRotors join a wide range of other components in being milled, machined and assembled on the premises. By taking this step, StopTech strengthens its ability to offer the best Balanced Brake Upgrades® in the industry.
StopTech AeroRotors are 100% made in the USA, with both casting and machining taking place in California. The StopTech AeroRotor manufacturing line is equipped with state-of-the-art Doosan vertical turning centers, a Doosan three-axis CNC mill and a Balance Technologies brake rotor balancing machine. Raw castings are produced at a U.S. foundry with over 100 years of experience. Together these resources allow StopTech to make a truly world class two-piece racing and high performance disc.
"Bringing StopTech's brake rotor manufacturing on-shore is a win-win for our customers and for us," explains Centric Parts President Dan Lelchuk.
