Founded in 1945 in Elizabeth, New Jersey, our modest beginning in a one bay service garage served as the foundation and inspiration to grow into a multi-national manufacturing, supply, sales, and distribution organization.


Privately held, Momentum USA, Inc. remains a solvent and profitable entity and reinvests in its divisions to ensure sustained growth. Momentum USA, Inc. continues to expand its market share and lead in each of its four core competencies: brake pads, cabin air filtration, exhaust products, and, most recently, PPE masks.
