Cloyes’ near 100-year experience engineering and manufacturing timing drive systems recognized by Chevrolet

At the 155,000 ft.2 Cloyes manufacturing plant in Paris, Ark., highly skilled craftsman manufacture machined powertrain gears, sprockets, and idler assemblies for an array of applications: OE manufacturer, automotive aftermarket, marine, and high-performance applications to name a few. On May 14th Cloyes had the honor of manufacturing an LT2 Crankshaft Sprocket, an essential engine component, for one of the most sought-after vehicles: the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8.

Often referred to as the “mid-engine Corvette”, the 2020 model delivers 495 HP with 470 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful production Stingray ever made, according to General Motors (GM). Cloyes’ contribution to the newly redesigned Corvette is an LT2 Crankshaft Sprocket manufactured from SAE billet steel with induction-hardened teeth for durability. The 22-tooth design is cut to the ISO-606 Roller Sprocket specification and features a custom 6-tooth involute spline on the front hub to drive the oil pump impeller.

All Cloyes products are extensively tested and verified to ensure they meet OE specifications. With a deep-seated commitment to customer success, Cloyes drives innovation and manufactures products that enhance engine performance and provide peace of mind to manufacturers, drivers, and professional technicians. “The receipt of this business reconfirms the level of quality, reliability, and capability that Cloyes offers its global automotive OE and aftermarket customers”, said Steve Fairbanks, Vice President of Manufacturing for Cloyes.

Social Media Made Easy with ReadyPosts

ReadyPosts is one of our newest tools for resellers in 2020. It is a free social media tool that helps aftermarket resellers engage customers and drive in-store sales. ReadyPosts is simple and easy because it is a library loaded with pre-written content and curated images searchable by hashtag, description, part number, category, and manufacturer.

There are a variety of posts from lifestyle images, product shots, videos, MAP-priced calls-to-action, and other content—like our COVID-19 geared images. We created the special COVID-19 series of posts because we understand that automotive aftermarket businesses have had to speak and work differently with their customers during this time. The COVID-19 ReadyPosts highlight that stores are still open, customers can book private appointments, and encourage people to get out in their garage to start new projects or finish up old ones.

We created ReadyPosts to make social media and digital marketing easier for resellers. Rather than focusing on driving likes and shares, ReadyPosts content targets the ‘discovery phase’ of the shopping experience. The goal is to inform consumers of what’s available to them and encourage them to contact their local reseller to learn more and potentially buy.

 Resellers can access ReadyPosts via the Insight account system at accounts.theaamgroup.com. And to see the special COVID-19 content, users should got to “ReadyPosts” in Insight and filter results by checking the COVID-19 box on the left-hand side of the page.
