It’s a catchy name, but when told that our beginnings were simply to service car brakes in the Hoppers Crossing area (Victoria. Australia), it makes sense how we have grown.
Founded by Peter Koning in 1990, local demand soon had the business expanding. Having a long history in hot rodding and qualifications in Mechanical Engineering, it wasn’t long before more than a few interesting rods, customs and restorations came through the workshop. Soon, Hoppers Stoppers was the “place” to have your collectible car fixed, be it a simple service or full restoration. Old car brakes were always in demand and quite a few modified cars were fitted with bigger brakes; at least whatever was available at the time.
In the late 90’s, new cars began to use separate rotor/hub designs and with PBR going to twin piston calipers on larger 300mm rotors with the VT introduction, a range of adaptable brakes became available at affordable prices.
Today, many locally built cars use similar large PBR systems, offering us the ability to engineer modern, available and economical upgrades for most popular cars.
