Caliper Remanufacturer

Our remanufactured brake calipers provide an economical alternative to OE brake calipers. Not only are remanufactured calipers a more sustainable option, but they are also considerably more cost-effective compared with fitting a new brake caliper. Remanufacturing requires fewer raw materials and saves energy in comparison with the production of a new brake caliper.

One of our core values at EBS Aftermarket Group is 'Green'. That is why we are happy to be a proud member of APRA (Automotive Parts Remanufacturers Association).
