Fun at Brake Parts Inc (BPI)Brake Parts Inc (BPI) has raised more than $175,000 for the United Way of Greater McHenry, Illinois, an increase over last year’s donation, during its annual campaign drive that ran in the fourth quarter of 2015. It was announced yesterday by David Overbeeke, president and CEO of BPI. “Once again, BPI employees took our United Way partnership to heart and generously gave to support our local chapter, which funds 27 health and human service agencies in the McHenry area,” said Overbeeke. “I can’t say enough about our employees and how proud I am that they rose to this year’s challenge and not only matched last year’s donation, but greatly exceeded it. This donation allows us to give back to the community to help better the lives of residents who depend on the United Way for assistance.”
BPI has been paramount in helping me refine my skills as a mechanical engineer. Seeing a project progress from a proposal to a finished product gives me a great sense of pride and accomplishment. Also, it has been amazing to work with a professional team that works diligently and efficiently to provide quality products to our customers.

Our Success Stories
“In the Summer of 2019, I started my internship at BPI as a Technical Service Intern for the Catalog Department. Here, I was able to demonstrate my passion and knowledge for the automotive industry by performing various hands-on tasks in an automotive garage setting. I provided valuable input into future Tech Services Training Courses offered by BPI. Upon completion of the internship, I was offered a full-time position in the brand new, state-of-the-art Research and Development Facility as an R&D Lab Technician. This steered my career into an exciting new direction, which I never imagined was a possibility!”

“I started my internship with BPI as a CAD designer for the Product Department in the Summer of 2013. I was excited to apply my design skills and amazed how computer-aided technology transformed the design process. Everyone on the Product Team was very helpful and patient with my questions. The most rewarding experience during my internship was the fact that my design received customer approval and helped BPI to acquire new business. I was offered a full-time position as a Product Engineer allowing me to gain more exposure to the automotive aftermarket industry from product design, manufacturing, and program management aspects.”

Right from the very start I found the overall environment highly conducive towards my professional development, exposing me to a wide range of projects in a very short span of time. I am grateful to be working with a team that cultivates a highly collaborative environment, this very fact allows me to constantly expand my knowledge base and continue adding useful skills.
