19 Dec Behind every great process is even better power transmission
The legacy of Gates’ belts began in 1917, when John Gates engineered the world’s first rubber V-Belt, which substituted formerly ‘manual’ jobs for machine driven industrial processes – changing the face of manufacturing forever. In 1945, Gates invented the first toothed timing belt, now known as the synchronous belt, and this was followed in 1979 with the introduction of the serpentine belt that pioneered a new era for power transmission.
The Gates’ legacy doesn’t rest on a rich and storied history of innovation alone. The Gates name has been preserved by a continuous need to outperform themselves, earning the trust of customers, new and old, time and time again. But serving the needs of an ever-changing world means staying ahead of the curve. By investing in the research and development of materials science and the design and manufacture of power transmission products; and drawing on the real-world experiences of people; Gates aims to solve the diverse challenges of today’s industry while anticipating the challenges of the future.
