MGM Brakes Celebrates 60 Years in Business!

Since 1956 when the founders of MGM Brakes invented the spring brake actuator, we have taken our role as a leading world-wide supplier to the commercial vehicle industry very seriously. From our humble beginnings almost 60 years ago when MGM Brakes addressed the safety challenge of the logging industry in the Pacific northwest, we have earned the reputation as the industry leader in continuous improvement and innovative, cutting edge actuator products in the commercial vehicle industry. From a simple parking brake in 1956 to Tamper Resistant (TR) spring brakes of the 1980’s, we moved into the new millennium with the introduction of MGM Brakes e•STROKE®, electronic brake monitoring system for drum and air disc brakes.

The founders of MGM Brakes set a high standard of quality, innovation and safety almost 60 years ago - a philosophy that is woven into the fabric of MGM Brakes. As you learn more about the addition of e•STROKE® to our family of brakes, you will see we are keeping our founders’ commitment to our customers and the commercial vehicle industry as we embark on another sixty.

As MGM Brakes celebrates 60 years, we thank you for your continued support. It’s been a great ride and we invite you to come along with MGM Brakes for the next 60 years and beyond!

Chairman, President and CEO
