We've become famous for braking...
by becoming famous for not breaking


The company was founded in 2000 in Southern California and has enjoyed solid growth every year since. Today the company operates multiple warehouse and manufacturing facilities totaling 438,000 square feet and exceeding 500 employees.

Centric's executives bring with them extensive experience and insight. Dino Crescentini, CEO of Centric Parts has several successful aftermarket companies under his belt as founder and senior executive, including Autospecialty and StopTech and has been a race car driver for the last three decades. He currently races as part of the SCCA SPEED World Challenge Championships on the Global Motorsports Group team.

Dan Lelchuk, president of Centric Parts, has been part of the auto aftermarket business since 1976, holding positions with several import parts suppliers including Beck Arnley and Brembo as well as also having worked with Crescentini at Autospecialty.

Stephen Ruiz, Centric Parts' Director of Engineering and a recognized industry expert, comes with over 20 years of brake and friction materials experience as well as race car design, engineering, and manufacturing.

The company is rounded out with skilled and seasoned experts from across the industry. This encompassing knowledge of the industry brought by the executive team is further expanded on through Centric's dedication to research and development. The company has one of the industry's best programs for tracking and cataloging original equipment, and devising quality aftermarket and OE parts for consumers, mechanics and car makers. Centric's catalogs, a practical standard in the industry, now boast over 40,000 braking system parts supporting nearly every make and model from passenger cars to medium duty trucks manufactured since 1937. In the process, the company has earned a string of braking technology patents, has been repeatedly awarded by the Friction Materials Standards Institute for catalog and program excellence, and has earned the highly coveted TÜV approval on several big brake kits.

Originally focusing on replacement parts for everyday use, Centric parts has aggressively expanded into the performance market by acquiring StopTech in 2006 and Power Slot in 2007.

Posi Quiet

Learn More: Posi Quiet Brake Pads
Posi Quiet Brake Pads
Posi Quiet brake pads are manufactured using the same positive molding process utilized by Original Equipment suppliers. Positive molding uses extreme pressure to compress the friction material and bond it to the backing plate. This process assures consistent friction material density throughout the pad, resulting in even wear and performance characteristics throughout the life of the brake pad.
The number one cause for customer returns are noise and vibration. Centric Parts has recognized these issues and is constantly improving its products to eliminate these issues. Posi Quiet brake friction features either precision cut or shaved backing plates and mechanically attached shims; these small details ensure proper fitment in the caliper and virtually eliminate noise associated with pad vibration. In addition to these features Centric Parts has added a scorching process to all of its Posi Quiet brake pads. This additional process forces any impurities out of the friction material and pre-burnishes the pads to greatly accelerate the break-in process.
All Posi Quiet brake pad friction formulations are asbestos free and are available in three application specific compounds.

Posi Quiet Loaded Calipers
Posi Quiet loaded calipers are a full line of original equipment replacement brake calipers providing unmatched quality and value. When installing Posi Quiet loaded calipers, technicians can be assured that they are getting top quality products that have been engineered to meet or exceed the function of the original part. Each component is specifically designed for each application and the attention to detail throughout the manufacturing and testing process ensures each caliper will perform to the exacting standards of today's vehicles.
Each Posi Quiet caliper is finished in the same way as the original from the factory; Posi Quiet calipers feature a Zinc Dichromate finish, or O.E. colored powder coating depending on the application. This feature ensures that the caliper will look as good as it works throughout its lifetime.
