Charles Gates Sr. in 1911 purchased the then Colorado Tire and Leather Company in Denver, Colorado right next to the South Platte River. He paid a handsome price of $3500 for the property which then became known as the largest manufacturing facilities for power transmission belts and then the leading producer of top quality fluid and hydraulic powered products. Today, GATES parts include belts and various types of hydraulic machines used in the automobile industry. It employs 14000 staff out of which a significant portion is responsible for sales and marketing in various markets such as Europe, South America, North America, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.
GATES car parts are recognized as being some of the best in the business. However, one of the things that help GATES parts stand out from all the competitors is the actual quality of their belts and hoses. It is because of this quality that even cheaper competing businesses in China are unable to match the sales figures and popularity enjoyed by the GATES brands. So, if you’re looking for a high-quality aftermarket vehicle part always start by making sure it is manufactured by GATES first before you try any other brand.
