PFC Brakes Europe has announced that the Andreani Group is its new Italian distributor of car and motorcycle brake parts, for both road and motorsport use. Headed by former motocross rider and suspension expert Giuseppe Andreani, the company will use its famed expertise to provide PFC Brake Europe’s Italian customers, on both two and four wheels, with local sales and technical support.
Whilst the Andreani Group is best known for its involvement in motorcycling, the firm now has a substantial presence in four-wheeled motorsport with technical support trucks and technicians attending a range of motorsports in Italy from shows, rallies, circuit races, hill climbs and off-road events.
To ensure the shortest lead times, the Andreani Group based in Pesaro, will stock brake pads, discs and associated parts at its massive facility from where it distributes other renowned performance brands such as Öhlins, Samco, Marchesini and Termignoni. “Andreani Group commands huge respect in Italy and is known for the high level of technical support it offers its trade and private customers,” says Peter Babbage, PFC Brakes Europe’s managing director. “Its knowledge of vehicle dynamics will be particularly relevant when supporting customers.”
2014 will see PFC Brakes Europe further expand its motorsport and road ranges for both cars and bikes. Nominating additional specialist distributors is the latest stage to support growth that has included being selected as a supplier to the Porsche Supercup, with new series announcements imminent. “Our European headquarters have grown significantly in the last six months with two new account managers providing technical support for motorsport, automotive and fleet customers across Europe,” adds Babbage. “With other significant announcements in the coming months, we are creating a robust infrastructure for all customers, wherever they are.”
