About Us

We proudly remain Australian owned and our products are 100% made in Australia.

Australian Friction Industries (AFI), as it is now known, was founded in 1960 by Darko Nemanic. Darko introduced the innovative concept of bonded brake shoes into the Australian brake industry. AFI, originally known as Australian Brake Lining Co., has since built and maintained its reputation as a reliable, innovative, and high standard manufacturer.

Our aim is to continue to produce superior friction products for industrial, mining and railways. With over five decades of experience within the industry, we continue to strive to ensure all our products are top of the range, only using premium raw materials. At Australian Friction Industries we are dedicated to providing our customers with products of the highest quality and service whilst still maintaining a competitive market price.
