J·Juan Group, the second manufacture of braking system in Europe, will invest one million euro in Research and Development for the processing of brake calipers and pumps. This means a significant increase on the substantial budget that J·Juan Group already assigns to research and development of its products and in this case without any damage to the investment in R&D of other activities of the Group.
For J·Juan Group the concept of Machining is important to the success of their business based on the methodology of the processes and industrial management. This model has allowed the company to settle successfully in countries like China, India and the United States, currently reaching 450 employees -85% in Spain- and retaining a share in the market in which 90% of the western bikes are equipped with components manufactured in Gavà.
J·Juan Group will forward this action thanks to the collaboration with the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and especially with the innovative R+D of IK4 – IDEKO, a private technology center base in Basque Country, specializing in manufacturing technologies and industrial production.
With 25 years of experience and approximately 100 engineers- including 29 doctors- the company of Elgoibar has become a landmark in European industrialization. IK4 – IDEKO counts on a portfolio of 1,500 customers in private industry and manages projects involving more than 1,300 professionals of industry and Machining.
J·Juan Group employs more than 450 expert staff, 20% of which work in the Development Department. In 2014 the volume of sales topped 37 millions euros: 50% in the European market, 30% in the US market and 20% in the Asian market.
The strong efforts and the continuous research of advanced braking technology gives the Spanish company the opportunity to attend the worldwide racing scene, where J.JUAN Group is a high level partnership for breaking systems with two of the most important and official Teams in 2015 World Superbike Championship (Kawasaki Factory Team) and MotoGP (Avintia Racing Team).
