In 1986, three friends Gary Chen, Leo Chen and Aver Tsai founded TEKTRO with 20 employees in Changhua, Taiwan. The first factory was about the size of a basketball court. The monthly production capacity was at 50,000 sets of cantilever brakes. Their business values drove their success: work dependably, design creatively, manage efficiently and keep production at the highest quality.

1999 TEKTRO launched its first hydraulic disc brake, which still is the company‘s most successful and important product. Today, TEKTRO has production facilities in Taiwan and China with over 1,500 employees and provides sales and service in Taiwan, China, Europe and USA.
