Today the company is a joint venture between Honeywell International of the U.S.A. and Pacifica Group Pty Ltd, an Australian company. The company’s manufacturing plant in Ballarat, Victoria employs an average of 250+ personnel and manufactures a large range of disc brake pads and has gained a reputation of manufacturing, marketing and distributing quality products with high levels of customer service.

It also manages two smaller manufacturing plants in Malaysia and Thailand, producing similar products.
