COMPANY AND TECHNOLOGY
As a result of the BRAID's growth, our factory in Igualada is being expanded with the addition of two new buildings, in order to supply wheels faster to our constant growing customers.
This expansion, with more square meters, will also allow us to increase our production capacity and our number of stockholding wheels for a quicker delivery reaction, as demanded by the current market.
HIGHLIGHTSForged I: this forged wheel has hollow spokes with spherical milling, in I-beam structural shape. The final result is a wheel even ligther and stronger than the other standard Forged wheels. In some cases this reduction in weight can reach down to 1 Kg. less.
MONO BRANDED CHAMPIONSHIPS
Braid is specialized in supplying wheels for mono-branded cups and championships, both rallies and circuits. Because of the unbeatable quality/price relation, manufacturers are choosing our wheels as an official and exclusive part to equip their cars. This tradition started back in 1988, equipping the AX Circuit Championship from Citroën with Serie 1R 3-Piece wheel. After that we start equipping the Hyundai cups, and for the next 15 years our wheels was used in all Hyundai championships, starting with the Hyundai Pony Rally championship, followed by Accent 1 and Accent 2 cups, Coupe and Getz Cup. Also we have been involved in challenges such as Nissan Raid, Nissan 350Z Cup, Suzuki Swift Rally Cup, Mitsubishi RMC cup, Fiat 500 cup and many others. Later we got the deal to develop and manufacture a specific design for Seat Leon Eurocup in size 9,5"x18" and also collaboration with Peugeot Sport France to equip in exclusivity the asphalt and gravel rally wheels for 207 RC. We have accomplished a new partnership with Renault Sport France, to develop, manufacture and equip in exclusivity the asphalt and gravel rally wheels for the new Renault Clio 4 R3T.
