In 1965 Bendix Mintex commenced manufacturing Disc Brake Pads, which was followed by orders from original equipment manufacturers to become the sole Australian supplier of friction materials to local automotive companies.
Up until 1970 Bendix Mintex products were confined to passenger car and commercial vehicle brake linings and disc pads. In 1971 they acquired the Australian manufacturing operations of H.K. Porter who had a considerable number of Original Equipment contracts for clutch facings. As a result, the Company reinforced itself as a leader in the manufacture of automotive friction material. During the 1980’s Bendix Mintex invested heavily in advanced manufacturing facilities and became Australia’s largest friction material manufacturer.
