Disc Brakes Australia Completes Triple Crown at Recent AAAA Industry Awards in Melbourne, Australia

Disc Brakes Australia awarded “Best New Performance Product.”

Disc Brakes Australia is pleased to announce that we have won Three major awards, including the top prize at the prestigious AAAA industry awards in May 2011. The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association’s biannual awards are highly prized, and in 2011 it was “gold, gold, gold” for DBA with two other awards also being presented.

1. DBA was given the AAAA’s top award for Best New Performance Product for their all new T2 & T3 rotor designs.
With distinctive ‘T pattern’ curved slots on each face and a host of other unique features, these rotors introduce major performance and practical advantages to motorists. This is the same prestigious award won by the company 14 years ago when DBA shook up the ‘direct replacement’ brake market by offering the first affordable cross-drilled and slotted rotors.

The new rotors have built up a motorsport pedigree before they were even ready for sale. The Disc Brakes Australia Honda Integra Type-S of Terry Conroy, Bob Hughes and Gerry Burges ran Club Spec T3 discs in prototype form in the Eastern Creek Eight Hour at the end of 2010. Their car achieved first in class and fourth outright. Shortly afterwards, the organizers of the spectacular V8 Ute Australia series completed their own trials and announced the new rotors as the standard fitment for the 2011 season.

The new T-Series rotors can be fitted on the left or right and will make their debut at the upcoming SEMA and PRI Shows later this year.
This innovative universal bi-directional design will help improve market coverage with minimum inventory requirements. More details on this exciting new rotor technology will be coming soon.

2. For a record ninth time, Disc Brakes Australia garnered the Gold Manufacturer of the Year Award for Excellence in Manufacturing in the Over $10 Million Annual Turnover category.
This award acknowledges the company’s state-of-the-art facilities where all new rotors are produced to the highest international quality standards in the world

Phillip Joseph of Disc Brakes Australia inducted into the AAA Hall of Fame.

3. Completing the triple crown, DBA Managing Director Phillip Joseph was inducted into the AAAA Hall of Fame.

 

In presenting the award, AAAA representatives praised Mr. Joseph’s strong commitment to the industry and to road safety. Mr. Joseph has run Disc Brakes Australia for more than 30 years, overseeing its rise from a small spare parts maker with a handful of part numbers to a major international supplier of aftermarket and original equipment rotors for hundreds of models. During that time, he has been a passionate advocate on behalf of Australian manufacturing, and a regular campaigner for improved road safety and higher vehicle maintenance standards.

DBA is greatly honored and humbled to earn these awards and is proud to be a part of this great market we serve.
