SSBC Company History

Stainless Steel Brakes Corporation (SSBC) first pioneered the stainless steel sleeved caliper for classic Corvette and Mustangs back in 1975. We are the industry standard for high quality brake systems and components, offering a complete line of disc brake conversions and performance brake upgrades for classic muscle cars, late model performance vehicles, street rods and customs, trucks/SUVs and sport compacts.

Starting out as a small business, SSBC broke through the challenges many small companies face, and is now thriving in its 2nd generation of family ownership. Located in Clarence, NY (near Buffalo), the past few years have seen the purchase and expansion into an adjacent building, and the construction of a new Research & Development wing. In all, over 15,000 square feet was added.

SSBC Industry Technology Leader

At SSBC, braking is all we do. It's who we are. Our experts are dedicated to bringing you the best braking technology, for as much as 25% shorter stopping distances. We have and will continue to take steps to improve our capabilities. Some recent steps include:

  • Bringing higher levels of standardization and quality control to our organization
  • Installing three automated parts carousels and a modern shipping system, allowing us to quickly fill and ship orders
  • Utilizing state-of-the-art CAD software for rapid product development
  • Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software to provide powerful design validation and stress analysis prior to manufacturing
  • Purchasing a 3D printer that allows us to produce sample parts to check fitments
  • The installation of a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), allowing us to measure product tolerances, further ensuring proper fitments and safety
  • Replacing three outdated CNC machining centers with four new ones in 2004; another new CNC has since been added, bringing our total number to nine
  • Installation of a cutting edge CNC Bridge & Rail System that utilizes Plasma/Oxy-Fuel sources to mass produce various brake components to precise standards

Continued Innovation & Growth

These improvements give us design, testing, quality and manufacturing capabilities that very few aftermarket companies can match. We will continue to look at areas and methods to improve, enabling us to consistently provide high quality, high performance braking technologies.

Our signature line of aluminum calipers was first introduced in the late 1990's. These lightweight calipers greatly reduce unsprung weight, which improves ride quality. Most are available polished and all can be powder coated a variety of colors for added visual appeal. They are available in both front and rear kits, and come in single, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8-piston configurations.
