HOMER, Mich.--- The high-end auto parts manufacturer Brembo S.p.A is marking the grand opening of expanded North American operations at its plant in southern Michigan.

Brembo's $115 million investment enlarged the factory in Homer where brakes, discs, calipers and corner modules are produced.

During a ceremony Wednesday, the company based in Stezzano, Italy, said North America will become its top market this year. Chairman Alberto Bombassei says the expanded and upgraded plant will let Brembo boost its U.S. presence and offer better service to clients.

Brembo began making brake discs in the U.S. in 2007 after buying the Hayes-Lemmerz discs division, which included the Homer plant.

The plant has undergone several expansions and added a caliper and corner module facility in 2010. It has about 450 employees.
