Gates Corp. Releases 748 New Automotive Aftermarket Parts

Gates continues to expand its vehicle application coverage with automotive aftermarket SKU additions across its product line, including the release of a new Micro-V Component Kit and Turbocharger Hose.

DENVER, Colo. — Gates Corp., 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.
