These are standard parts from Bosch and other suppliers.
It's not quite that simple. Modern ABS comprises a complex hardware and software "System" and needs to be specifically designed (and tested) for each vehicle. You can't simply take an ABS system from one car and put it on another.

This Wikipedia entry will give you a bit of an intro. In particular read the last section titled "Design and selection of components"
