At Akebono, “safety” is our top priority when it comes to developing and manufacturing products. It is our mission as a brake expert to ensure “safety and peace of mind” for our customers around the world.

Akebono has been developing and manufacturing brake products for automobiles since the company was founded in 1929. Sales of automotive products, including motorcycles, account for more than 95% of total sales. Main products are disc brakes and drum brakes, and the corresponding friction material, which are the brake pads and brake linings, respectively.

Market share for OEM (for automobile manufacturing plants) is about 46%* in Japan and about 21%* globally. These figures serve as testament of the trust we won from our customers. Technology refined through developing automotive products are now being applied to brake products for other areas of transportation, such as rolling stock and industrial machinery. Furthermore, Akebono also develops and manufactures sensor products which harness the vibration-analysis technologies of brakes. Akebono is aggressively opening up new business opportunities in the infrastructure and mobility fields with these products.
