Friction Samples
About Us

Friction Control, LLC. was started in 1996 to manufacture and sell friction products for the maintenance, repair and original equipment markets. As part of this effort, Friction Control uses organic-based friction materials in its dry applications and special formulations for the wet friction requirements. All of the friction materials are 100% asbestos-free and have been tested and accepted in the marketplace.

As our ongoing desire for continuous improvement, Friction Control has control systems in place and feedback methods designed to track our activities. To aid us with our quest for superior quality, we have put together a quality program which consists of a quality manual, job instructions for each job, process instructions, gauge calibration systems, shop orders, master and monthly schedules, incoming, in-process and final inspection reports to name some of the basic methods we work with. We also use Statistical Process Control (SPC) on jobs that we cannot do 100% inspection.

In January 2003 we received our ISO 9001: 2000 Registration. Currently we are ISO 9001: 2015 certified.

We believe in having a close and open working relationship with our customers as well as our suppliers. The basis for our success is a workforce that is well trained in all aspects of T.Q.M. and an unfailing belief that attaining quality first in all things we do will result in the achievement of all other goals. Friction Control personnel are experienced and have extensive training in quality control procedures.

Located in Clinton Township Michigan, we are a progressive company that understands the need to provide a product to our customer that meets or exceeds their requirements. We will provide this by using Total Quality Management concepts.
