Despite global supply chain challenges, Momentum USA delivers best-in-class fill rates

Longtime family-owned company has continuous hands-on control in all areas of its brake pad manufacturing process to assure product quality all the way through to installation

By now it is clear that all during the pandemic, supply chain demands and shortages have exacted a negative toll on the aftermarket channel, from manufacturing parts and distribution to the shops and techs who need to make timely repairs. However, Momentum USA, Inc. has taken on these unexpected challenges by creating opportunities and solutions through our North American manufacturing and distribution, and today we can boast a best-in-class fill rate of more than 95 percent.

How? Momentum USA, Inc. has continuous hands-on control in all areas of the brake pad manufacturing process to assure product quality all the way through to installation and customer satisfaction. This allows us to remain a consistent, competitive and dependable source for supply and distribution no matter the global conditions. And we can — and do — implement Factory Direct Private Label Programs with industry-leading shipment times for all North American customers. Here are just a few of our advantages that differentiate us from the competition:

  • High Percentage Fill Rates (95% ++)
  • Fastest Turn Around in the Industry
  • No Global Supply Chain Issues
  • Low Prepaid Freight Minimums

Within the Momentum family of companies is New World Friction, a brake pad manufacturing facility in Cambridge, Ontario. In this 140,000-square-foot facility, New World Friction manufactures a wide range of brake pads including car, light truck, fleet and medium/heavy-duty service, and air disc. Our team of formulators and engineers were one of the first to introduce a 100-percent copper-free brake program to the market. Our environmentally friendly friction formulations met and exceeded federal standards many years ahead of schedule. 

New World Friction supports Momentum’s brand AmeriBRAKES,which offers a full-coverage program that is 100 percent manufactured and distributed in North America. The design of the pads is OE matched with slots, chamfers, and optimum noise abating insulators. Through a series of stringent SAE Protocol testing, AmeriBRAKES has demonstrated proven performance among competitors.

AmeriBRAKES offers three unique brake pad kits: AmeriPLATINUM (Best), AmeriPRO (Better), and AmeriSTAR (Good). AmeriPLATINUM includes a complete set of industry-best hardware, which contributes to bringing the brake system to a “like-new” state. AmeriPRO includes necessary abutment clips that deliver best brake system results, while AmeriSTAR’s robust coverage remains a good option for the entry-level market segment. All three options are fully stocked and supported by our sister company AutoPartSource in Richmond, Virginia.
