What is the history of the v-belt?

The first v-belt was pioneered in around 1917 by John Gates, a partner in the Gates Rubber Company. At the time, this was a revolutionary concept which changed automotive power transmission forever.

Over a century later, v-belts remain one of the most popular types of industrial belts and are used across every industry and in every country of the world to power some of the globe’s most critical machinery.
