"BRAKING WITH TRADITION"
Established over 40 years ago, BG Developments specializes in the manufacture of high performance brake calipers and discs for specialist applications.
During that time, an extensive library of designs has been built up, covering many high performance road cars, and even more historic race cars. All the vented brake discs are sourced from AP Racing, and every castings used is made & heat treated in the UK. As an extension to the manufacture and supply of brake components - 3D scanning, 3D printing and 5-axis machining centres allow the recreation of obsolete calipers and discs samples.
