Safeline Brake Pads set the benchmark for automotive braking systems in South Africa when they were awarded the prestigious SABS certification. This has a significant impact on the automotive aftermarket parts and accessories industry as Safeline Brake Pads is the only brake pad manufacturer in the country to be SABS approved.
The announcement was made official with a ceremony held at their manufacturing site in Muldersdrift, Johannesburg on the 25 June 2013.
The SABS gave Safeline Brake Pads their stamp of approval, initially on 5 part numbers, after conducting strict product tests to comply with the South Africa National Standards as well as a visit to the manufacturing facility to assess the quality assurance systems.
Red Shuttleworth, CEO of G.U.D. Holdings (Pty)Ltd said that, “We are proud of this achievement which attests to our dedication to ensuring our brake pads are the safest on South Africa’s roads. Our commitment to stringent manufacturing processes is now further validated and we will continue to develop our brake pads to preserve the high standards motorists can depend on. ”
