SOUTHFIELD, Mich. — Federal-Mogul Motorparts has introduced its line of Jurid-brand replacement brake pads for German vehicle models to the North American market.
In Europe, Jurid offers OE and replacement brake products for premium German nameplates.
The new range of Jurid pads offers coverage of about 98 percent of German passenger vehicles registered in the U.S. and Canada, according to Federal-Mogul.
More than 40 percent of the 156 Jurid pad sets feature the same shapes supplied as OE to German vehicle manufacturers, the company said.
Jurid brake pads have been standard equipment on many Volkswagen Golf models since the mid-1970s and other German vehicle OE applications have included the Audi A3, BMW 4 Series and i8, Mercedes-Benz A-Class and Volkswagen Passat, according to Federal-Mogul.
Founded in Düsseldorf, Germany, in 1915, the Jurid business today is based in Federal-Mogul Motorparts' friction products engineering and manufacturing complex in Glinde, Germany.
"The Jurid brand is known and trusted by automotive professionals worldwide based on its more than century-long heritage of advanced technology and premium performance for German passenger vehicles," said Christine Fisher, Federal-Mogul Motorparts group brand manager, friction, North America. "We are pleased to bring many of the same leading-edge, OE-based technologies and aftermarket brake pads to distributors, service providers and consumers throughout North America."
