About Us

Founding statement

The business operations of Berco Clutch and Friction PTY Ltd is situated in the Stormill industrial area, West of Johannesburg in close proximity to the N1 and all major freeways. Our management team has close to forty four year’s experience in the brake and clutch industry with a number of our business relationships in the trade going back many years.

Business activities


Our core business activities consist of the sale and marketing of friction materials and clutch products for the automotive, industrial and mining industries. Friction products include heavy duty brake linings for commercial vehicles, moulded roll lining for automotive bonding of brake shoes, as well as woven material for industrial and mining applications. 

Our product selection include some well-respected brand names which are proven in the market based on their quality and durability.


Quality statement


All friction materials are “E” marked and compliant with international and SABS quality standards. Our selection and choice of products are always based on quality approved standards. We endeavour to maintain high standards of quality workmanship and to exceed service expectations to better serve the needs of our valued clients.


Current events and activities


Our long term involvement in the clutch and brake industry resulted in the formation of Berco Machinery SA, a subsidiary company, competing in the forefront of the technical and engineering segment of the industry, specialising in the manufacture of pneumatic riveting, brake and clutch machinery and equipment.




Our objective remains to make available to our clients an above average range of approved automotive products at competitive prices, and to create an awareness as to the importance of not using sub-standard (inferior) parts and materials, especially those related to the braking systems of commercial vehicles i.e. busses and other forms of public transport, where safety standards are critical.




We embrace the principals of equal opportunity for all, and to operate in a climate of non-discriminatory practices and trust. Our core values also embrace respect for public interests and our long track record pays testimony to our honesty and integrity.
