Rane Brakes opened a new facility in Sethurapatti Village, about 25 km from Tiruchi last month. This plant is projected to produce two million disc brake pads, about Rs 15 crore in value. Over time, the plant’s capacity would be ramped up to 10 million by 2012. The new manufacturing facility is the company’s fourth and will make nonasbestos- based (therefore, environment-friendly) disc pads.
