Profile of activity

 

FRENOPLAST was established in 1985. It manufactures friction materials and products  mainly for rail but also  for braking systems used in various industries. The company has its own technology in the field of asbestos-free, environmentally-friendly friction material. As the only company with the former socialist countries, has gained approval of the International Union of Railways (UIC) for the disc brake pads according to its own technology.
 
For the past  twenty years Frenoplast’s rail products have been applied by PKP (Polish railways) in their Inter- and Eurocity trains. The acceptance of the International Union of Railways has also allowed the use of Frenoplast’s pads in the European Union markets for  traffic up to 200 km/h. This has opened up the opportunity for Frenoplast to  export its products and  to compete with  companies from Germany, France, England and Italy. Competition  is helped by the virtues of Frenoplast pads: long disc and pad life as well as outstanding performance in cold and  wet  conditions.

 

 

In 2000 the owners of Frenoplast built a new factory in the  Warmia-Mazury Special Economic Zone. The new factory enables to increase the production capacity and creates new jobs in the region, where unemployment is a serious problem. Our work has been appriciated by Marshall of the Province of Warmia and Mazury with the prize „For a contribution to the promotion of Warmia and Mazury”.
