Our history

Brakes Plus is run by Gary Hambleton, a sole trader who shares 35 years’ experience. He spent 11 years as a manager for a brake and clutch company in Western Australia and 21 years with New Zealand’s leading automotive parts company. In 2011 Gary chose to start Brakes Plus, working as a mobile brake machinist for automotive workshops and private clients. Since 2012 Gary has been operating out of the workshop and is progressively continuing to expand.
