I like their products because of their TÜV, ABE and ECE R90 approvals. British made was an added bonus.
What's interesting though, is not that long ago, they mentioned using British iron for their brake discs. Now the language on their website has changed:EBC Brakes produces G3000 grey iron castings in numerous plants, either owned by its sister Company in the UK or from carefully selected sources in Italy, Europe and Asia with over 82% of EBC brake discs are MADE in the UK.
With all those imports from China, I guess things have definitely changed:EBC automotive rotors or discs are made from G3000 grey iron many castings being made in the UK by our sister company who has full casting facilities, research, chemists and tech analysts and a quality control department. Other imported rotors are made to EBC specification in ISO approved and German TUV accredited facilities that are inspected and approved by EBC Brakes engineers. All EBC brake discs/rotors carry German ABE labelling. EBC Brake rotors are made from OE spec grey iron made to SAE J431 cast iron which is known in the USA as G3000 grey iron. This is the exact spec used by OEM car builders.
As long as the quality is there, I guess that is really all that matters. But if they're charging UK manufacturing costs for Chinese sourced rotors through marketing gimmicks, that's a whole different ball game. Still, it raises the question; which discs are actually made in the UK and the U.S., and which discs are made at "other" facilities?
