Company History

International Brake Industries has been located in Lima, Ohio, since it was established in 1967. From that first day, we have continuously supplied the automotive aftermarket with high quality brake hardware for domestic and import vehicles, as well as light and medium duty trucks. 


IBI offers the most comprehensive product line coverage available and is the fastest to market with new coverage. Over the years, we have expanded our product line to include brake hardware for disc brake vehicles, drum brake hardware, self-adjusting parts, pistons, caliper repair kits, brake lines and tubing, and brake pad electric wear sensor kits, ABS sensors and parking brake kits. We also supply a broad array of products to the rebuilders of disc brake calipers. International Brake Industries can provide a complete turnkey private label program with multiple packaging options.


IBI also markets our products under the Carlson brand name.
