HISTORY

While NUCAP was founded in August 1994, we already had decades of experience in the production of brake system components. August of 1994 simply illustrates when NUCAP changed the market by employing state of the art conventional press technologies and innovative advanced die technologies. Along with re-defined process flow and innovative engineering processes & standards NUCAP did not become another metal stamper, but rather a product innovator.
