Expanded Range Heavy Duty products + new catalogue

HD_CatGates announces the expansion of its heavy duty / commercial vehicle product range and the launch of its new Heavy Duty product catalogue.  The expanded Gates Heavy Duty programme under the Gates Extra Service label includes
belts (V-belts and Micro-V-belts), hoses, hose clamps and fuel caps for trucks, buses and tractors.  

Recognising the demands of trucks, buses and commercial vehicles, Gates is continuously expanding its range of specific heavy-duty products.  “We have identified our strengths and are concentrating on what the customers need,” explains Chris Arnold, Business Development Manager for the European Aftermarket.  “We are looking at installer needs and letting that drive our approach”, he continues.

Gates' Extra Service commercial vehicle programme is specially designed for trouble-free and long-lasting service in the demanding working conditions of vans, trucks, buses and tractors.  The products in this range are built to original equipment quality and offer excellent performance.  Following Gates system approach, the programme provides customers with products for belt drive systems, cooling systems and fuel systems.

The new Gates Heavy Duty catalogue is multilingual and contains information in English, French, German, Dutch and Spanish, about belts, hoses, hose clamps and fuel caps for trucks, buses and tractors.   The catalogue provides information per system: belt drive systems, cooling systems and fuel systems.  The main part of the catalogue is dedicated to the alphabetical listings for belts in trucks, buses and tractors.  This section also includes size listings for the belts, a list of kit components, and a manufacturers' part number listing for belts.  Within the cooling systems section, one can find size listings for the heavy duty hoses and hose connectors, and a hose clamp identification table.  The fuel systems section includes an alphabetical list by vehicle make for (locking and non-locking) fuel caps, and an overview of the fuel injection clamps.  The catalogue also contains a new products section, an overview of cancelled and replaced products, and a back cover flap with the explanation and translation of all abbreviations and symbols used in the catalogue.
