Brembo CEO Daniele Schillaci said: “The opening of the new production site in Thailand is a crucial step in our global expansion strategy.

“We strengthen our position in the key two-wheeler segment and consolidate Brembo’s role as a solution provider for our customers operating in the country. With this investment, we lay the groundwork for further developments of our business in the ASEAN [Association of Southeast Asian Nations] region.”

FDI inflows in Thailand have made a quick recovery following Covid, but the country continues to struggle with more investment due to the rising interest rate, which now stands at 2.50%. As a result, foreign direct investment levels dropped from $14.64bn in 2021 to $10.03bn in 2022, according to UNCTAD.

Founded in 1961, Brembo is headquartered in Curno, Bergamo. The motorcycle business currently accounts for around 13% of the company’s total revenues.
