Richard Bennett is the new kid on the block in the braking world.

And his company, Global Braking Systems, has scored a major coup, having been appointed by Metelli Co as its official UK Cifam distributor.

Global will sell the complete Cifam branded range of parts into the UK aftermarket and will launch with the brake hydraulics portfolio.

The range includes:

  • wheel cylinders
  • brake & clutch master cylinders
  • slave cylinders
  • press regulating valves
  • brake shoe kits
  • brake hoses

Based in a 4k sqft distribution centre in Warwickshire, GBS promises to offer factory gate prices, exclusive brands and OE quality products all on next day delivery.

It is seeking to establish relationships with UK buying groups and independent motor factors.

With over 15 years experience in the UK car parts aftermarket, Bennett said: “I have worked with [Metelli] successfully in the past, and look forward to a new beginning.

“We have OE quality manufactured products with the official Cifam brand whereas a lot of companies selling these products are private label, non-manufacturers.”
