Gates worldwide supplier to car and motorcycle manufacturers

The Gates Rubber Company, with European headquarters in Erembodegem (Belgium), is a leading manufacturer of hi-tech rubber belts and hoses for industrial, hydraulic, agricultural and automotive applications.  Gates not only supplies to all major car and machine manufacturers, but also to the aftermarket.  

In the global automotive industry, the name Gates is synonymous with high-quality products and services that solve problems and add value.  Gates is supplier to virtually all car manufacturers worldwide.  Thanks to close co-operation with these manufacturers, Gates leads the way in design and manufacturing methods.  Each product excels by its long life and reliable performance.  Gates belts and hoses are specified by OEMs around the word.  This enables Gates to provide OE-equivalent products to the automotive aftermarket.

Gates is also a major supplier of belts to the motorcycle market.  It all started in the 80s, when the world famous motorcycle manufacturer, Harley-Davidson, decided to equip its motorcycles with Gates’ first generation of Poly Chain® polyurethane synchronous belts achieving high speeds at low torque.  Through the years, Gates has also become an important supplier to numerous scooter manufacturers, such as Peugeot MTC.  For over ten years, Gates has been timing belt supplier for all Ducati motorcycles.  The latest development of the Gates Group is the Poly Chain® GT2 11 mm pitch synchronous belt, specially designed and manufactured to drive the engine of the new BMW F 650 CS motorcycle model.  Both the belt and drive system have been developed by Gates in close co-operation with BMW MOTORRAD.  

In addition, Gates has launched its BOOST™ programme including high quality variable speed replacement belts for scooters in the 50 cc to 180 cc range.  

Gates continues to invest in quality, research and development, enabling them at all times to assist motorcycle or car manufacturers with whatever drive design challenge they may be confronted with.
