The beginning of the relationship between Teknia and Brazil started in 1999, when the company acquired a historical local company dedicated to the manufacture of tubular parts. From that moment on, Teknia started its activity in the country and began to work with local manufacturers and other suppliers, providing service to the company's first customers and projects in Brazil.

Teknia manufactures nothing less than 25 million brake pistons per year in our plant in Parets del Vallés (Barcelona, Spain). That means that 6 out of 10 vehicles in Europe have a Teknia brake piston. And this leads us to state that more than half of the cars manufactured in Europe have a Teknia brake piston.

These are frenzied times in our sector, in which change is ever-present and it is crucial to swiftly adapt to it. Therefore, it is essential to know where the changes will be coming from, to keep a steady eye on the market, on our competitors and on our customers, to listen to their demands and to anticipate their needs.

It is therefore key in vehicle’s passive safety. But do you know how it works?

In the last years, the commitment to sustainability has made its way into the automotive world as well, and electric vehicles are steadily taking up a bigger share of the market. Carmakers and part suppliers have to quickly adapt to all these changes.
