Brake Parts, Inc. was founded by E..F (Bud) Mikesell in
1981. In the beginning we supplied our quality components
only to the Caliper Rebuilding industry. Today those same
components are now found within disc & drum brake
hardware kits in thousands of service outlets worldwide.
We cover your domestic and import brake hardware application
needs with minimal SKU’s.
We were the first Aftermarket
Brake Component Company to be ISO Quality Certified.
Quality is not a slogan with BBP. Each component is tested
for dimensional and material integrity as well as various
fluid compatibilities by our in-house design & engineering
department. Our Products meet or exceed S.A.E. specifications
on quality, safety and performance or it doesn’t leave
Another first for BBP was their
CD catalog. Better Brake Parts was the first Aftermarket
Brake Component Company to supply their customers with a
CD catalog with digital photos. In 2009 we introduced our Web
Based Catalog and are leading the industry in providing information
on new products. We are very proud of our comprehensive, easy to
use Web Based Cataloging. Our catalog
is linked to this website with the RED "B" on the left side of the page
For those who prefer a paper catalog we have our 2011 catalog and it can be sent.
With dedication to Quality,
Service and Price Competitiveness our company has continued
to prosper. Recently we have added a Los Angeles warehouse
to more efficiently serve our west coast customers. We are
always searching for improvement in our customer service.
Bud Mikesell had over 40 years
of aftermarket brake hardware experience. He also had the
vision and understanding that our customers require a quality
product at a fair price. His vision still lives today and
that is why Better Brake Parts is your source for Quality
Domestic & Import Brake Hardware.
