News Featuring Market Developments by Key Players of Automotive Timing Chain & Belt:

In September 2022, BorgWarner, a Michigan-based company, inaugurated a new Variable Camshaft Timing (VCT) manufacturing unit in Tamil Nadu. This new facility will have centralized assembly of VCT systems and high-performance engine control. Along with this, the factory will also have space for shipping and warehousing. The motive behind the company’s expansion is a heightened order book and a rise in localized sourcing.

In June 2020, Continental AG launched a new timing belt, the CT1228 timing belt, for Peugeot engines and special Citroen. The new CT1228 timing belt has better material properties, which supersedes that of CT1188. These are developed for engines, which permits timing belt to run directly in oils. Additionally, these belts offer greater smoothness and efficiency even in older, high-mileage engines.
