CORPORACIÓN UPWARDS 98 S.A. (BREMBO ESPAÑA) is a market leader, dedicated to the production and distribution of automotive brake systems. As part of BREMBO, an international group, it operates in the Spanish and Portuguese markets which generate 100% of its turnover.
Originally set up over 55 years ago as a family business (Auto Industrial Urpa), after the first agreements with Brembo in 1994, Brembo España has become an international company committed to product and service quality.
Corporación Upwards 98 S.A., Brembo’s commercial name in Spain, was set up in late 1997, aiming to take advantage of the opportunities of the Iberian market in all the fields in which Brembo operates as a market leader.
Brembo’s plant in Spain covers a total area of 50,000 sq m, with a 16,000 sq m warehouse and a 2,000 sq m office building.
Brembo’s business philosophy includes the entire range of brakes – discs and pads, drums and shoes, wear indicators, hydraulic components, brake master cylinders, wheel cylinders, hoses, etc. Brembo is a distributor of the brands Brembo, Villar, Urpa, Textar, Mintex and Don in Spain, while diversifying not only the product ranges but also the brands it offers. Brembo offers a solution for each of its customers’ needs as well as for the market as a whole.
The company manufactures all types of automotive brake systems, both spare parts and original equipment.
At its facilities in the Centrovía industrial park in La Muela, it also manufactures the suspension arm for Mercedes Vito, a vehicle by Daimler Chrysler, in response to the car maker´s intentions to reduce its number of partners and the decision of the car maker to increasingly involve its suppliers in the production process, with a preference for the purchase of whole brake modules. As a result, the corner module of the vehicle, incorporating Brembo´s products, is also assembled at Brembo´s plant.
