A History of Inspired Engineering
Seventy-five years ago, Hayes Performance Systems began as HH Products, a Milwaukee manufacturer of parts for outboard motors. It morphed into an agricultural and small-engine components parts supply company. It was not until the 1950s that Hayes got involved in brakes, designing the first disc brake caliper for a go-kart. By 1958, we were manufacturing disc brakes exclusively.
Since our humble beginnings in 1946, Hayes Performance Systems has now grown into a multi-national business with high-caliber operations in North America, Europe, and Asia. We’re recognized as a global braking and suspension systems supplier with core competencies of integrating components and technologies into systems. Like any good trail, our path has had twists and turns. But you’ll see that decade after decade, our drive for innovation has never stopped.
