Automotive parts maker building new plant in Wroclaw


Chassis Brakes International (CBI), one of the world’s largest manufacturers of automotive foundation brakes and brake components, on 2 October initiated the construction of a production plant in Mirkow near Wroclaw. The value of the project is €13.5m. It is expected to start operations in August 2013.

CBI is the former foundation brakes business of Bosch, which in June 2012 was acquired by KPS Capital Partners in a global deal. The transaction covered brake production operations at Bosch’s facility in Mirkow. These activities will now be moved to a separate, new plant erected for CBI. Whether the relocation brings new jobs will depend on the outcome of large contract tenders the company is currently participating in, said Wojciech Sliwinski, head of CBI’s Wroclaw unit.

CBI has 21 manufacturing facilities and engineering centres in Europe, Asia, and South America and employs approximately 6,000 people worldwide.
