The benefit of all the years of experience is available in the comprehensive product range supplied into the Southern African Aftermarket sector by Alfred Teves Brake Systems (Pty) Ltd, to the same quality standards as those supplied to the Original Equipment sector.
Alfred Teves Brake Systems (Pty) Ltd Quality Management System accreditations include the International Standards Organisation certifications:
These accreditations signify the systems adhered to in every aspect of the company e.g. procurement and sourcing, accounting, manufacturing, quality control, marketing and logistics. Alfred Teves Brake Systems (Pty) Ltd is one of the first local manufacturers of brake pads to be accredited to the global ECE R90 standard, in 2009.

The Alfred Teves Brake Systems (Pty) Ltd product range includes ATE branded brake pads, discs, shoes, master and wheel cylinders.
The ATE brand is renowned for its premium quality brake pads and discs. All Alfred Teves Brake Systems (Pty) Ltd brake pad formulations are locally developed to deal with the specific driving conditions in South Africa (whilst conforming to global regulatory standards). Depending on the application, replacement clips are supplied with many brake pad sets. Less commonly known is the fact that Alfred Teves Brake Systems (Pty) Ltd also manufactures brake pads for Heavy Commercial Vehicles (HCV). The friction material formulation was developed in-house to meet local operating conditions and legal requirements (passing tests for the SABS VC8053 in 2008). During 2012 the product was approved to the stringent international e-Mark specification.
ATE branded brake shoes for passenger vehicles and LCV’s are quickly gaining acceptance in the aftermarket. These are not re-bonded but rather manufactured with new components. Core returns are therefore something of the past! So are arguments about non-acceptance of damaged cores. On top of that, retailers no longer have the hassle of handling old and worn components. The greatest advantage to all concerned is the improved safety aspect of fitting a brand new component. Our Shoes also adhere to the VC8053 Standard and is approved by the SABS.
