About Us

KUMA Brakes designs and manufactures optimal lifetime durability brake pads made from metallurgical powders for international high-power wind turbines. Our certified friction materials are formulated to have a high resistance to corrosion. Furthermore, they are subjected to rigorous quality control processes in order to guarantee the best quality product to our customers. As a result, our North American brake pads are qualified by the world’s leading manufacturers in the OEM market such as General Electric and Senvion.

KUMA Brakes was founded in 2010 by wind power sector engineers in Canada with a focus on designing innovative and superior brake pads to supply local manufacturers. After 5 years of research and development, we designed high performance brake pads  in collaboration with Université Laval and Technische Universität Berlin. In 2015, we were ready to produce the perfect brake pads and opened our production facility in Canada. Since then, our sales kept rising sharply each year and expand our production internationally through our team of experts and strategic alliances.
