StopTech is the high performance and racing brand from Centric Parts. StopTech was the first manufacturer to offer balanced brake upgrades for production cars and remains a worldwide leader with over 700 platform offerings which dramatically improve overall braking performance, according to the company.
StopTech was founded in 1999, with the singular mission of becoming the leading aftermarket manufacturer and supplier of high performance brake components and systems. The company founders sought to challenge the status quo in known brake technology, and set new paradigms for brake system upgrades, according to the company. United by their passion for racing and high performance vehicles, the company quickly earned a reputation for quality and performance both on and off the track.
StopTech’s industry-leading technologies and materials, from rock solid calipers to efficient heat-handling rotors, have earned the company four patents and numerous industry honors. In 2013, StopTech earned full ISO/TS 16949:2009 Quality Management System certification for the design and manufacture of automotive brake systems and components, allowing the company to supply OEM vehicle assembly plants directly in a Tier 1 relationship.
