The driving force in the brakes market
Always Looking Ahead
We are brake specialists, but we’re also acceleration experts, because we regularly introduce ground breaking developments. We want to make the best better and focus on the future for our partners.
The Brake Specialists
We’ve been working with brake systems for more than 100 years. We have brought numerous innovations to the market – from the hydraulic brake to ABS. And we keep going too. As part of the Continental Group, one of the largest international automotive suppliers, we have expertise in the entire automotive sector. We can draw on a global network, in which more than 200,000 people are already working today on the solutions of tomorrow. With our extensive product range and additional know-how, like that of the electronics and mechatronics specialist VDO, we are a truly reliable partner for workshops and the automotive industry – today and in the future. Whether it’s for OE or for spare parts and services. We also develop brakes for vehicle manufacturers’ small production batches and special vehicles, including sports cars, light vehicles, motorcycles, industrial vehicles and agricultural vehicles.
First Class ATE Quality
When it comes to quality, “very good” is simply not good enough for us. We meet high standards of quality management – and ATE even exceeds the European safety standard ECE-R90. We also perform many additional tests, including wear and thermal performance. Sustainability is also important to us. We convert the compounds for ATE brake pads to copper - free materials and opt for low abrasion with ATE Ceramic. We only use environmentally friendly material for the coating of brake discs – and we re-manufacture products like brake calipers.
The Safe Way
As specialists for brake systems, we know the high-level requirements of big car brands and their drivers, and this is also shown by the high quality of our wear parts. Our brake pads, brake discs and drum brakes are the premium choice – they are durable, reliable and matched to interact with one another. Our broad market coverage says it all – ATE is the brake specialist!
