THE THREE KEYS TO OE Quality Friction


The OE Quality Friction (OEQF) Process has been refined and continually improved over the last 16 years to ensure consistency of quality across every product we manufacture right here in North America. From product design to procurement of materials to mixing, molding, painting and grinding, we ensure our quality exceeds our customers’ expectations and provides a safe, reliable and durable product for the end-user. Our packaging and shipping processes, aided by our North American footprint, have been designed to deliver our product on-time and in the condition you expect from your partner. Learn more about our design and manufacturing process.


Anyone can sell you brake pads.  But by buying a product, you are buying the involvement and investment of dozens, if not hundreds of people who have some level of accountability for delivering a quality product with the timing and service you expect. 

Because we are based here in North America and our management team has direct involvement in every part of our process, we know every person who has responsibility for your satisfaction by name. And we like it that way. It is a close-knit culture of customer service, not a loosely-configure network of people and companies who are all in it for their own gain. 

We work hard for your business and harder to keep it. 


Ultimately, you need a product that you can have confidence providing to your customers. Your good name depends on it and we appreciate that. We have a full line of product and we are typically fastest to market with new products, keeping your product line relevant to today’s rapidly changing automotive marketplace. 

From car and light truck to commercial and fleet to performance and racing applications, we have product for nearly every vehicle on the market today. Our goal is to ensure you have the OE quality product your customers need. Search available OEQF products.

OE Quality Friction STORY

OE Quality Friction (OEQF) was founded in 1997 on the principle of marketing Original Equipment quality disc brake pads at competitive aftermarket prices. Originally located in a small 14,000 square foot plant, the company quickly worked to keep pace with demand by expanding into 82,000 square feet of space. 

In 2009, new investors purchased the company, management was reorganized in 2012 to ensure future growth. Since then, OEQF has expanded its world-class, North American-based manufacturing capabilities to provide our customers with an expedited supply chain and consistently quality outcomes. We recently added a 120,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Juarez, Mexico which has improved every part of our operation, expanded our capacity and allows us to deliver an entire range of product for customers across the region.

Today, our company culture, from top to bottom, is committed to providing products and services of the highest quality to continually exceed our customers’ increasing expectations.
