Brake Parts Inc.’s brake components manufacturing facility in Longkou, Shandong, China, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary with a special ceremony for employees called, “Create a Great Cause with Ambition, Share the Same Destiny for a Brilliant Future.”

“Our 20th anniversary ceremony was not only a chance to celebrate the success that we’ve achieved at the BPI-Haimeng facility over the past two decades, but also an opportunity to inspire everyone to strive for even greater accomplishments going forward,” said David Overbeeke, president and CEO of Brake Parts Inc. “We are very proud of the fact that our BPI-Haimeng facility produces millions of rotors and drums each year and continues to maintain an exceptionally low warranty rate. We are steadily increasing the production of coated rotors to meet the market demand which is growing by double-digits.”

The BPI-Haimeng plant is one of 10 facilities operated by BPI. BPI-Haimeng employs more than 2,400 people from the local area. The anniversary festivities celebrated their ingenuity and included performances by employees and special recognition of several team members.
