Hi there and welcome to the website. My name is Ben de Meillon and owner of Superior Friction (PTY) LTD supplier of performance brake upgrades.

I registered the business as a company back in 2012 and started trading online. From modest beginnings, the company moved from strength to strength. At the beginning there was not a lot of competitors that offered performance brake upgrades like discs | rotors and brake pads.

Today there is a few but they don’t explain in detail the differences and reasons why to buy the different upgrades.

One of our advantages to our competitors is the fact that we have experience in website building and don’t need to outsource our work.

My Dad Hans de Meillon with more than 30 years experience in the motor industry  based in Randburg Gauteng joined me in November 2016 and was appointed as the general manager.

We feel it’s very important to have an “about us” page so that new visitors can have at least an idea who they are dealing with. Whether you’re building your own website or are just browsing for information on a business, organization, or individual, the ‘About Us’ page is a vital part of every website and blog.

As a qualified engineer in the shipping industry since 1981, Erdogan Yucel identified a gap in the South African market for quality automotive parts which were expertly manufactured yet affordable.

1994 saw the birth of Yucel with distribution of quality automotive parts for the aftermarket industry as the primary function. The company prospered and branches were opened throughout SA. As an expert in the engineering field, the progression into product research and development was natural.20 Years later, due to the increasing demand, it became obvious that a solution needed to be found. Our manufacturing plant was the answer.

Today the plant boasts 2400 square metres with a capacity of 75 000 sets of brake pads per month. Optima has been established as a superior brake pad for the passenger and light commercial vehicle markets. Our technical researchers are currently in the process of developing products for heavy duty vehicles as well as a product in the brake lining field. We are excited to announce the launch of the new product lines for later this year. Optima brake focuses on providing a flexible and fast service, short delivery time, approved quality and competitive prices.

Optima disc brake pads are tested by ECE90,SABS and authorised by the NRCS.
