TMD in new Beaulieu exhibition

History of Friction to run for five years

Published:  02 July, 2014

TMD Friction is celebrating its history and looking towards the future with the launch of a new dedicated exhibition at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu.

The event will run for a five year period, enabling the manufacturer to update it with developments and milestones as they happen, and link them with vehicles on display within the museum itself. Looking at the history of vehicle friction beginning in 1878, it will be seen by the 350,000 visitors a year to Beaulieu.

For the public, the exhibition aims to provide an insight into the history of brakes, complete with interactive and touch screens, short films and imagery to ensure that it is as engaging as it is educational.

John Hudson, CEO of TMD Friction, comments: "We are delighted to have been able to showcase the History of Braking at Beaulieu. This opportunity to compile our comprehensive history has been incredible and has presented us with a unique opening to really look inside our business and to share it with the public. We have never had a better overview and understanding of our history than we do today and the perception that we have gained through preparing the exhibition has been invaluable in us remembering where we have come from - which we now plan to use as a foundation for an even stronger future for TMD Group globally."
