Gates awarded as ‘Best Brand for Timing Belts & Multi-ribbed V-Belts’ by AP Magazine in Portugal

For three consecutive years, Gates’ European Automotive Aftermarket Division has won the award for ‘Best Timing Belt & Multi-ribbed V-Belt Brand’ by AP Magazine, the leading automotive trade magazine in Portugal.
 
Between April 9 and May 25, AP Magazine conducted a survey to find out ‘The Best Brands of 2007’. An independent company who specialise in market research contacted 600 independent garages in Portugal asking participants to vote for the best brand in almost 50 product categories. For the category ‘Best timing belt & Multi-ribbed V-Belt Supplier’ the majority of the garages voted for Gates. All suppliers were judged particularly on their quality and service level; features to which Gates is very committed.   The official ceremony takes place in Lisbon, October 11. 
 
Salvador Grima, Gates’ Regional Sales Manager for Spain and Portugal comments: ‘We are very pleased with this recognition and continued trust in our company, our products and our services. Specialisation, research and quality control are the basis of Gates’ success and we will continue to invest in quality, research and development in order to meet our customers’ current and future demands.’
