Veteran owned, BuyBrakes.com was originally founded 20 years ago by 35-Year Automotive Aftermarket Industry Pro, John Butler. His stated Mission in 1998 prior to launch was "To simplify the complex." Take the category of brakes and its 300,000+ part numbers and simplify the selection and ordering process and make it easy for customers to order and communicate with us as they need for help and guidance and delivery."
Armed with two extraordinary decades of company building and performance product marketing, John was the Marketing Director during the original introduction of Brembo Big Brake Kits to the North American market. To launch his own company BuyBrakes.com, he combined that industry experience and the relationships he had developed with the founders and/or Presidents of most all performance brake companies and launched the pioneering brake category site you are now visiting.
