Who We Are
We're the founders of Brake Depot
We're a family run business which designs and manufactures Sport Grooved Brake Discs and then distributes around the world. We offer brake components to both trade customers and the public via our many selling channels such as eBay, Amazon and our Website. Customers can also collect from our premises in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
Founded in 2009
Brake Depot Limited was founded in 2009 by Paul who has more than 28 years experience within the Automotive sector, in his early days Paul worked for his Dad's company as a vehicle technician but it soon became apparent Paul's passion laid firmly within engineering, so he soon began to follow his passion.
Starting with specialist engine building and conversions came the requirement for more specialised machining of parts, with this came the purchase of his first CNC Vertical Machining Centre, a brand new XYZ 710 VMC equipped with Siemens Shopmill.
Shortly afterwards Brake Depot Limited was founded with his wife Sarah, and to this day Brake Depot is very much still a family run business with Paul and Sarah working full time within the business... their youngest son Jamie who is showing a keen interest in precision machining and their eldest son Reece taking an active role in the business's IT requirements.
Only our best products
With more and more of our customers choosing to buy online, the problem we face is "how do we show our products are different to other manufacturers?", most grooved brake discs look the same or similar but the prices can vary drastically.
To combat this we are launching our new website, this will be on a 'build your own brake kit ' style, so basically you can choose a brand of disc that suits your needs and more importantly your budget, then you can choose whether to have the discs grooved in one of our 6 designs (not available for all applications), then add your chosen brake pads, whether you want performance for the front, standard for the rear or a matching set, the choice is yours!
This new website ensures you get the brand you want, in the style you choose at a price you can afford, no more wondering whether your discs are branded or cheap Chinese imports, at Brake Depot you are in control.
