We design braking systems for over half the world’s vehicles, building much of the original equipment they are fitted with when they roll out of the factory*. We are also the leading brake parts manufacturer serving the independent aftermarket.
All TRW True Originals aftermarket parts (including brake pads, calipers, discs and actuation systems) are developed, designed, built and tested with the same level of expertise and precision that goes into our OE braking systems.
Because we produce every type of vehicle braking solution, no one knows better than we do how every component works and interacts with others to perform effectively together. That’s why choosing TRW True Originals means the most efficient fit for you, the highest level of safety and quality for your customer, and the best results for your business.
For example, independent testing has shown that the unique COTEC friction coating on TRW True Originals brake pads can cut stopping distances by up to 7 metres during bedding in**. That’s a difference that could save a life.
We are the only IAM braking manufacturer to develop our own testing hardware and software. We test our True Originals products in the factory and on the road, including Alpine tests, high performance testing and hill holds.
Our product development team works hard to ensure that we’re leading in the changes the market needs. For example, our innovative Electric Blue range is growing fast to meet increasing demands from the electric and hybrid vehicle market.
The TRW research and development team maintains mutually beneficial relationships with major vehicle manufacturers around the world, to make sure that we can offer you – and your customers – the safest, best-performing products possible.
The huge range of TRW True Originals braking products is available for the European vehicle parc, which means you can easily find and fit the right part with confidence. Precision engineering helps you to quickly achieve a perfect fit, keeping jobs moving swiftly through your workshop while providing your customers with uncompromising quality and value.
You’ll find that TRW brake pads and discs arrive with essential accessories and fitting kits included in the box. You’ll like our attention to detail, too - for example, our black painted discs don’t need to be cleaned before fitting. We also understand every detail of every part, so the instructions we provide are clear – it all helps make life easier.
The TRW True Originals catalogue will help you to quickly identify exactly what your customer needs, and order TRW disc brake system components that you know will be an efficient fit every time.
We manufacture in our own automated factories, using the latest techniques, technologies and testing methodologies to ensure that we’re always at the cutting edge. Complete visibility and management of every stage from design to delivery means that we can confidently offer our product guarantees, knowing that you and millions of customers all over the world are relying on us for their vehicle safety and performance.
