About Us

A Leading World Class Manufacturer & Distributor of Quality Brake Components

NewTek has provided private label and NewTek branded products to distributors in the United States, Canada, and Mexico for more than 25 years.

At NewTek Automotive USA we maintain a substantial inventory for immediate shipment from our 100,000 square foot distribution center in Kansas City, MO.  Because of our centralized location we are able to ship brake products throughout the country faster than many other suppliers.

In 2020 we announced the takeover of China Yantai Friction Company (CYFC) located in China.  CYFC is one of the foremost pad production facilities in the world, occupying 1.01 million square feet of production space.

Now known as CYFC Group of Newtek Automotive, we house one of the best engineering technology and testing equipment facilities in the world –  positioning NewTek as one of the few suppliers in the world to control our supply, production, and quality for both OE and Aftermarket pads.
