About Us


Boninfante Friction, Inc. is the world leader in friction clutch manufacturing for the motorsports market.

Boninfante creates custom clutches for an array of applications from street cars to full race clutches, from top fuel dragsters and nitro funny cars ,to F1 and F1H2O boats. We’ve even made clutches for road grader use and aircraft test equipment.

Boninfante specializes in energy transfer. Currently, Boninfante is taking on the NASCAR market with our COR-725 clutch and will soon become the number one supplier in it.

Boninfante Friction has expanded beyond the clutch market and into the automatic transmission world with a new line of billet flexplates, SUPERFLEX and MEGAFLEX. We have also taken our energy transfer expertise and applied it to develop a new line of brake pads, Boninfante Brakes.

Boninfante constantly sets itself apart from the rest of the industry in product quality and customer value. It is no wonder Boninfante Friction Inc. is recognized as the worldwide market leader.

Since the family’s beginning in the clutch manufacturing business in 1988, Boninfante has systematically produced parts of superior quality at competitive cost, thus setting a pace of sustained corporate growth and customer satisfaction.

In 2011, the family business changed hands, passed from father to sons and growth is being spearheaded by the next generation. The sons grew up in the company core. The core company values have remained the same, but the corporate scope has been widened to encompass not only second to none quality and value, but on time delivery and 100% customer satisfaction. All of this is being monitored by sophisticated engineering and business standards that make us the world leader.
