Vanco Power Brake SupplyWith Vanco Kits, you do not need clean underwear
Edward Vanderlip started rebuilding power brake units in 1956. In 1965
he opened his own business with a partner rebuilding Power brake
boosters and master cylinders for autos and heavy duty trucks. Ray did
the light trucks and cars, his partner built units for the 18-wheelers.
In 1968 Carter Precision offered Ray a buyout on his company and the
opportunity to run their power brake division, he accepted. He took
their power brake division from 0 profit to their most profitable
division. In 1983 Ray decided to take the future and put it in his own
hands, he left Carter to get started on his own business. It was his
plan to create a company that would succeed him through his children.
Using his reputation only he promptly got a loan to start his own
business. In July 1984 Vanco Power Brake Supply was born. His sons
joined them in this venture and are still running the business today.
started building loaded vacuum power brake boosters (boosters with
master cylinders attached) to warehouses. In a couple years we added
hydraulic power brake boosters to our line. To expand with the time we
offered our boosters with and without master cylinders (loaded and
unloaded). In the late 80s we started building proportioning valves and
metering valves to the great relief of our customers because they where
becoming impossible to find. During this time we became known as the old
car specialists, rebuilding any vehicleâ€™s booster from the 1930s on.
this day people call and are amazed we can handle vehicles as old as
the 30s. The background created by Ray with him teaching his sons
everything he knew made Vanco the place to go to get your older vehicles
fixed. It has created quite the niche for us. We became well known for
solving any brake problems. Be it walking someone through some standard
brake issues to creating whole new brake systems for vehicles. The kits
started out as just adding power brakes to vehicles that didnâ€™t come
equipped with them. Later we started building kits that put out more
power the original to help vehicles that where beefed up to stop safely.
In the early 90s we created a Hydraulic braking
system that would put out 3 times the power of a vacuum booster to stop
extreme vehicles, such as racing vehicles and Off-road vehicles. We get
calls daily thanking us for our systems and we pride ourselves on
making vehicles safer. Our newest addition will be re-sleeving master
cylinders and calipers with stainless steel. Look for this to start
happening in the last quarter of 2004. Meanwhile we still offer
resleeving through an account we are very happy with. Edward Vanderlip
and Ray Vanderlip II (Aka Van) run Vanco Power Brake Supply now with
Cathy Vanderlip (Rayâ€™s wife). We have many plans for the future and are
proud to keep Rayâ€™s dream alive. Thanks for reading and please feel free
to call any of us for any of your braking needs.
