Marathon Brakes | Rand DMarathon Brakes | R and D

At the core of our business success is a tradition of developing new products that raise standards for our industry. This is exemplified by our commitment to develop quality brake linings that lead the heavy–duty trucking industry. Our application–specific friction materials demonstrate just one of the many ways that Marathon works hard to maintain the “customer first” focus that has been our heritage. Additional current projects include a focus on going “green” as well as a new ultra long–life friction material.
