G.U.D. Holdings, South Africa's leading automotive filter manufacturer since 1949 has acquired Safeline Brake Pads.

Founded in 1992, Safeline has rapidly grown to become one of the largest manufacturers of high quality Original Equipment (OE), P&A and Aftermarket disc brake-pads in South Africa.

The transaction is subject to the successful conclusion of a due diligence procedure and the approval of South African Competition Authorities in terms of the Competition Act No. 89 of 1998, as amended.


New environmet friendly packaging

This is another first for Safeline in its drive to become “green” and environmentally friendly, Safeline is now using reusable and re cycle able plastic containers to pack their brake pads.

They are water resistant, durable and flexible. The plastic containers come in 5 different sizes, the best part is that they can now be reused after the pads have been removed for packing nuts and bolts, pencils and crayons and makes a handy lunchbox as well as many other useful applications.

One set of brake pads is placed into a machine that shrink wraps the brake pads together which are then placed in the uniquely designed reusable plastic box.
