Keystone Adds South Bend Clutch to Line Card

Feb 1, 2019

Keystone Automotive Operations Inc. has added South Bend Clutch to its performance products category.

South Bend Clutch of Mishawaka, Indiana, has four generations of experience manufacturing, rebuilding, and machining high-performance clutch kits for cars and diesel trucks that span a variety of markets. The company’s mission remains centered on quality parts, personalized service, and competitive prices.

“We spend much of our time and energy designing and testing new products in an effort to continually improve the driving experience,” South Bend Clutch stated in a news release. “So, whether you tow, tractor pull, drag race, grand prix race, or just love the feel of acceleration, South Bend Clutch has the right application for you.”

South Bend Clutch’s product selection spans from OEM-factory specifications to performance upgrades, and heavy-duty industrial applications, offering clutch kits, flywheels, hydraulic accessories, bearings, bushings and alignment tools. Whether it’s entry-level or high-end, new or rebuilt, South Bend Clutch products are guaranteed to perform.

The company recently began cryogenically processing its clutch kits to dramatically improve performance and product life. This irreversible, one-time process increases wear resistance and consistency, decreases cracks, warps and imperfections in the metal, provides a better friction coefficient, and eliminates stress points, according to South Bend Clutch.

“South Bend Clutch is a great addition for Keystone Automotive and its customers,” said Dave Burke, category manager at Keystone. “Being able to offer such a high quality, well-respected brand only lends to the fact that Keystone is dedicated to supporting the performance market by growing its product offering.”
