Here in the US, its Avid, Shimano, and Hayes that parts are redily available. I've never heard of Brembos or Grimeca, much less have seen parts for them. I don't know how any of the mentioned brake companies compare (except I've never heard any major gripes), but I'd buy Avid or Shimano because all the local shops here stock stuff for them.

Call me dumb, but arn't disc brakes, disc brakes, assuming they are properly adjusted, and you can use them to slow/stop your bike well? Of course there are improvements, but they seem on a relatively small scale, like better adjustability, a few percent weight shaved off some part, or something along those lines.
