We are continuously looking for new ways to provide our customers with the best products, service and expertise,” said Silvano Veglia, Federal-Mogul Motorparts, Aftermarket Product Director Braking EMEA. “The expansion of our Ferodo range with cables, to be followed soon by the introduction of brake calipers and drums, provides customers and installers with a one-stop-shop solution for all braking components to meet the evolving needs of the customers, while continuing to deliver its promise ‘You’re in control’.”
