Autobax has extended its range of Gates automotive components, with the recent launch (March 2020) of specifically-designed belts for high-mileage cars.
“RoadMAX™ by Gates accessory belts have been developed by the Gates technical and engineering teams, in line with DIN standards, to meet growing demand for replacement components for high-mileage vehicles,” explains John Black, managing director, Autobax automotive after-market specialists. “RoadMAX belts, which offer optimal performance in older vehicles, compliment the premium Gates range of light and heavy-duty belts.”
Priced-by-performance RoadMAX belts feature optimised dimensions, good belt flexibility and stability, as well as smooth-running operation.
Autobax is the preferred Gates service provider locally and the sole distributor of Gates automotive timing components in South Africa.
The Autobax range of quality-branded automotive parts also encompasses oil pumps, timing chain, bearings and allied products – supplied by leading manufacturers, including MRK, NTN, Europart, STC and NSK. The company is also the exclusive kit packer for Timken products.
Autobax recently acquired the global Driveshaft Parts Group, which services passenger cars, light commercial, heavy-duty, off-highway and agricultural vehicles, as well as vehicles for industrial sectors, including steel mills, paper mills and marine.
Autobax, which marked 50 years of business last year, continues to expand its product range and solutions offering, to meet exact market demand throughout Southern Africa.
