We have significant initial customer commitments representing approximately $30 million for the remainder of the current fiscal year.

Napa is one of the auto parts stores that has their own branded brake pads. I have no idea who makes them, is it a reputable manufacturer? From what I see here, they have Napa Proformer, Napa Premium, Napa Ultra Premium, and Adaptive one. Good, Better, Best scenario. I guess the Napa proformer is the entry level brake pad and the Napa Ultra Premium is the best. If you have used Napa's brake pads before, please comment with your feedback.
