Roadlink International opens new caliper remanufacturing facility

Published:  25 March, 2016

A new £700k facility has been opened by caliper remanufacturer Roadlink International at its head office in Willenhall, West Midlands.

Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) chief executive, Mike Hawes, officially opened the new facility on Monday 14 March, at an event attended by more than 50 dignitaries from the trade and the locality.

Roadlink currently offers a complete range of new and remanufactured braking parts, including calipers and brake shoes as well as an extensive range of pads, discs and drums.

Despite the labour-intensive process required in remanufacturing brake calipers, the cost-effective benefits can be significant, offering considerable savings in comparison to manufacturing a brand new caliper.

Keith Sedgley, Roadlink joint managing director, said: ‘With the demand for remanufactured braking products increasing year on year, we have been alarmed at the number of low quality parts entering the trade.

'Roadlink's investment in this area underlines our position as a quality supplier and demonstrates exactly what customers can expect to receive in relation to product quality, technical support and customer service.

‘The new facility, which is one of the largest in the UK, will also enable us to remanufacture a higher quantity of calipers, ensuring this increased demand is met and product availability remains high.'

Helen Arthur, joint managing director, said: ‘We expect to create a significant number of new jobs over the next three-to-five years following this expansion of our remanufacturing facilities. Staff joining Roadlink will benefit from high quality training and development in line with ‘Investors in People' (IiP) principles, this accreditation having been held continuously for more than 15 years.'
