Gates Corporation recently announced the addition of 748 new part numbers covering millions of vehicles in operation to its line of OEM automotive aftermarket products.   

Gates Corporation, a global, diversified manufacturer of industrial and automotive aftermarket products, recently announced the addition of 748 new part numbers covering millions of vehicles in operation to its line of original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality automotive aftermarket products. 

The new parts include power steering products, continuously variable transmission (CVT) belts, coolant hose, water pumps, tensioners, idlers, and more. Gates also introduces two new products with this announcement: 15 SKUs of the new Micro-V® Component Kit for complete accessory belt drive system (ABDS) restoration and seven SKUs of its new applicated Turbocharger Hose product line for imports. 

The new Micro-V component kit features a Gates Micro-V AT multi-ribbed belt with premium EPDM construction, and related DriveAlign® tensioner and idler for complete ABDS system restoration. Purchasing the kit, which is available for more than 41 million vehicles in operation, costs customers less than purchasing each component individually.

“We are very excited to announce the expanded coverage of Gates automotive aftermarket product line as well as our new product offerings,” said Tom Trojan, Gates Product Marketing Manager. “We are continuously researching and developing new products and applications to provide our customers with the most comprehensive selection.”
