DBA has grown from its humble beginnings as a family-owned business over 40 years ago to being Australia’s number one disc rotor manufacturer and complete ‘brake solution’ supplier. Since 2018 DBA has been owned by ASX-listed GUD Holdings Limited, one of Australia’s leading conglomerates of automotive aftermarket product brands.
With its unparalleled technical expertise, DBA not only engineers and manufactures the most comprehensive program of disc rotors and drums, but offers a complete range of brake pads and shoes, calipers, brake fluids, sensors and other ancillary items.
In recognition of its uncompromising approach to quality and performance, DBA was recently voted #1 preferred and recommended brand, #1 for product range, and #1 for technical expertise in brake rotors by Australian workshops.
The company has long been a champion of safety in the Australian Automotive industry, and our dedication to quality has been recognised with over 16 manufacturing awards from the Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (AAAA). DBA is also a founding member of the Australian Auto Innovation Centre (AIC).
