Sundaram Brake Linings Ltd. (SUNDRMBRAK) - Company History

Sundaram Brake Linings (SBLL), formerly known as Sundaram Abex, was incorporated in Sep.'74 by T V Sundaram Iyengar & Sons and its subsidiaries, Southern Roadways and Sundaram Industries in collaboration with Abex Corporation, US, as a public limited company and commenced business in Sep.'76. Prior to the disinvestment, Abex Corporation was holding 16.57% of the company's equity which was divested in Jan.'95. SBLL is in the business of automotive and industrial friction materials used in automobile commercial vehicles, cars, jeeps, scooters, tractors, etc. It's manufacturing units are located at Padi, Madras, and Madurai.

It received the National Award for Technology Development in 1989-90.
