History Goodridge was founded by Stuart Goodridge in Totnes, Devon (UK) in 1969. Following his return from a successful racing career in Canada, Stuart began assembling and selling aerospace fluid transfer components to motorsport race teams. The company remained housed in a listed building on Collins Road, Totnes, until 1988 when the company purchased and developed a site on the Exeter Airport Business Park. In the same year, plants were opened in France, Germany, Spain, Holland, Mexico, and two in the USA. The airport site was developed and repeatedly extended over 28 years, passing the company?s 40th anniversary. In 2012, Otter Court was acquired on Marsh Barton Trading Estate, to accommodate plans for vertical integration and focus on delivering cost improvements to the business and customers. Goodridge was acquired by Rubicon Grovepoint Industries LLP in 2013. With £3m of investment in the company since 2013, in July 2016 Goodridge?s UK operations merged at the Dart Building on Exeter Business Park, bringing 148 of the group?s 370 global workforce together.Goodridge was the first company to produce braided stainless steel brake lines for automotive use and established them as the standard in motorsport around the world. When the ultimate in braking performance is required, champions turn to Goodridge. Factory fitted brake lines are usually made of rubber. Even when new, rubber expands under pressure causing a decrease in braking performance and spongy pedal feel. Goodridge brake hoses won?t expand under pressure, delivering precise braking when you need it. Every Goodridge brake line is individually 100% pressure tested and guaranteed to be leak free. Goodridge brake lines are corrosion resistant and come with a lifetime guarantee. Every brake line kit is supplied with all fixings required to provide a perfect fit first time, every time ? no need for bending banjos or putting up with universal fittings. With the largest application listing in the industry, supplying leading OEMs, motorsport teams and top aftermarket distributors, you can be confident that Goodridge?s decades of expertise shape every single brake line we make. Reduce your stopping distance, eliminate sponginess under pressure and improve your drive with a lifetime guarantee from Goodridge.
