100 years of success is not enough for us
From the hydraulic brake to ABS, ATE has enriched the market from the beginning with its pioneering developments - and will continue to do so.
Never ending story
ATE's success story isn't over, because we're still pioneers thanks to the innovations we're constantly introducing. We will leave a mark in the future!
ATE presents the first Mercedes brake disc aftermarket solution for Class C and E at leading trade shows.
The innovative, low-dust ATE Ceramic brake pads are introduced to the public as in the ATE Classic range.
Further development of the 2FNR-VEVO FNR caliper was introduced to the market.
The new, special low viscosity ATE SL.6 brake fluid is optimally matched to the fluid of electronic brake systems such as ABS and ESP®.
Continental technology for hybrid drives exceeds the stringent test series at GMC Silverado.
The first ESP® ESP® II with active steering intervention opens up new dimensions of driving dynamics and stability.
ITT Industries' Brake and Chassis Group was sold to Continental AG, and Continental Teves AG & Co. oHG was established. With the strong partnership of Continental Europe, R & D was expanded and new markets opened.
A new brake disc is revolutionizing the market - PowerDisc minimizes fading and has a long service life thanks to its non-scoring, uniform wear feature. Its premiere takes place in Automechanika 1996.
World's first integrated ABS mass production started - ATE ABS MK II is used by Ford USA and Ford Europe and one million ABS systems are produced in the next two years.
ABS MK II - The first anti-lock braking system that makes Teves fully prepared for volume production.
ATE's product philosophy is that safety systems must be cost-effective and in itself increase the degree of individual and general driving safety.
ATE sliding caliper disc brakes are introduced in high performance, tour motor sports. They are used in the BMW M1 in Group 4 version.
A pioneer in principle - Teves is the first supplier to open business for customers in North America. In 1977, Culpeper began manufacturing floating caliper disc brakes and vacuum brake boosters for Ford and Volkswagen at its Virginia plant.
The Teves factory in Rheinböllen provides high-performance ATE four-piston fixed caliper brakes for the Ferrari 365 GTB road model and Porsche 911 S.
Successful in-house development - the first booster developed entirely at home by the company. The ATE T52 vacuum booster entered volume production in 1972, and production figures remained impressive to this day.
ATE took over the production of disc brakes at the Frankfurt plant under Dunlop's license.
The Ford 17M, nicknamed “Bathtub ı, was a big dealer in the 1960s. 150 mark was supplied with ATE Dunlop disc brakes for an additional fee.
ATE approves the “negative scrub radius” design principle for improved directional stability during braking. In the same year, ATE starts the production of disc brakes in Germany.
ATE pump circulation brake boosters are the first hydraulic brake boosters to be used in car racing at the legendary Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrow.
Teves is taking place at an early date when disc brakes are technically superior to drum brakes, and this year development work in Frankfurt begins.
Despite the main factory in Frankfurt and many other workshops destroyed during the Second World War, the company has reached its former size with 3,500 employees. A new factory in Gifhorn underscores its intention to continue to emphasize the development of hydraulic brake systems.
The production of cylinder liners and ribbed cylinders using centrifugal casting starts at the Frankfurt am Main factory.
ATE tandem master roller was introduced for cars, trucks and buses.
Bernd Rosemeyer and Manfred von Brauchitsch take first and second place at the British Grand Prix - and race cars are equipped with ATE brakes.
For the 750 kg formula race, the race cars, Auto-Union and Daimler-Benz use ATE braking systems optimized by Teves for motor sports.
The Adler Standard is the first car on the continent to drive with hydraulic braking system - and the ATE Lockheed brake. Thanks to innovative technical developments and new casting methods, ATE improves its position in the market.
The letters of the ATE brand name are replaced by the old piston ring, punch and hammer. Blue packages are known as top quality products by workshops and companies in a short time.
After the end of World War I, Alfred Teves Maschinen- und Armaturenfabrik was founded
