50 Years of Elephant Brakes by Rietschoten

When we brake, our customers move forward: 50 years of success.

Rietschoten is celebrating fifty years of its existence. The company can proudly look back on its work over the past fifty years: Through its pioneering work and extensive experience in industrial disc brakes, it has become the undisputed market leader.

Since the 1970s, it has been developing and producing brakes; in 1996, it completed its modular braking system. Thanks to this carefully formulated modular system, braking solutions for practically every need are now possible.

Whether for yachts or the world’s tallest buildings: Elephant Brakes by Rietschoten do the braking.

Our customers value the quality and our staff’s commitment to always find a fitting solution. Whether this involves the steel industry, cranes, or renewable energy—Elephant Brakes excel due to their compact size, quick reaction times, high reliability, and outstanding braking power. The open construction design makes it possible to use disc brakes of any size.


In 2011, it is still self-evident that we always achieve the best results for our customers. But our work would not be possible without customers, suppliers, and partner companies. This is why we would like to thank all of those involved for their great support and trust shown in our products. We hope that we can continue our cooperation and keep growing together.
