Borg & Beck is an established world-wide supplier of premium quality automotive components to the vehicle aftermarket, with over 100 years history of engineering excellence and OE heritage.

Starting life back in 1903 and being the first to patent the sliding clutch, Borg & Beck has been a trusted brand by some of the world's largest vehicle manufacturers, in fact there was a time when Borg & Beck Clutches were originally fitted to pretty much every single British-made vehicle.

In 2006, the Borg & Beck brand was purchased by First Line Ltd, who have invested heavily in new product development to bring the range up to date and increase the product portfolio. Today, the brand is a vital part of the company’s global growth ambitions and now offers a portfolio of over 60 product lines, 40,000 references and is available globally to the world’s aftermarket.

First Line Ltd is proud to be a global supplier, supplying Borg & Beck to the independent repair sector.

We take important steps to ensure that the products supplied are of the highest quality, a quality that is representative of our brands' position in the market. We understand every aspect of the products we supply and will always provide customers with as much technical information and support as they need.

A significant investment has been made to build an on-site technical facility that enables the specification, testing, comparison and inspection of Clutch products, including Concentric Slave Cylinders.

Before a product is introduced and catalogued, whether it is Clutch or any other reference, it goes through extensive quality control processes to approve the quality of product and application. Distributors can have total peace of mind when associating themselves with our brands that what's in the box won't let them or their customers down.


Success depends on the ability to supply and at First Line Ltd we pride ourselves on maintaining a consistently high order fill and first-time pick rate. Distributors all over the globe depend on this unique ability to maintain an average 98% order fill, across all 60 product lines, which can only be achieved through investment in stock, systems, and logistics solutions.

Crucial to any parts supplier is the accuracy of the cataloguing. We are 100% committed to ensuring that the cataloguing of all our products is leading in terms of accuracy. It doesn’t matter how great the products are if you can't accurately link them to an application and this is why we invest heavily in ensuring that the research and data mapping is carried out to a consistently high standard.

A team of data people work daily to ensure that the vehicle data is maintained, and that all necessary information required to correctly identify the product is easily viewable so that distributors can confidently supply our products, minimising the need for sending out multiple parts. To further aid the efficient identification of many product groups, we have added technical layout drawings and 360° imagery, which has been shown to reduce the look-up time significantly.

All products can be identified clearly in our leading web catalogue, plus we are a certified supplier to MAM AutoCat and TecDoc.
