The company’s success has been marked by a long list of major product contributions in the automotive, aviation, aerospace and transportation industries. With brakes on cars, trucks, trailers, buses, farm and construction equipment, airplanes, golf carts and even bicycles, Bendix was long recognized as the producer of more brakes for more kinds of vehicles than any other producer in the world. With over 80 years of experience backing us up, Bendix brake pads offer quality that is unmatched. From domestics to imports ? SUVs to fleet vehicles. We’ve got the right brake pad for just about anything with an engine and four wheels. And, since the recent introduction of our enhanced friction formulations, Bendix semi-metallic brake pads combat noise and dust better than ever before ? minimizing customer comebacks after they have brake work done.


Driving innovation to meet industry demands has been a company tradition since its founding by Vincent Bendix in 1924. While this innovator’s earliest automotive interest prompted him to a career in car manufacturing, extreme competition quickly pushed him out of the market. He became determined, however, to solve the problem associated with starting automobile engines at the time and soon saw success with his invention of the starter drive in 1911. Bendix advertised it as "the mechanical hand that cranks your car."

1969 In July 1969, one giant leap for mankind also became a giant leap for Bendix as Apollo 11 astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin Jr. became the first men to walk on the moon, carrying scientific instrument packages designed and built by Bendix. The Bendix Corporation, as it was then known, was heavily involved in space missions during the late 60s and 70s and had a Bendix Launch Support Division located at the Kennedy Space Center. Bendix Corporation acquires 100 percent ownership of Bendix-Westinghouse.
1971 Only a few years later in 1971, Bendix introduced the industry to Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), with the first four-wheel ABS system being used on the Chrysler Imperial.
