("Cloyes") the global leader and designer of mission-critical timing drive systems and components for the automotive aftermarket, announced today the acquisition of Rotomaster, a leading global turbocharger and component specialist. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Since 1978, Rotomaster has maintained a deep portfolio of complete assemblies, individual components and service kits for diesel and gas-powered applications. Both Cloyes’ and Rotomaster’s extensive experience as Tier One aftermarket suppliers will complement each other and drive significant growth and expansion for both companies.

Cloyes is enthusiastic about expanding its market presence and delivering unparalleled products and services to all our collective customer base.”
Cloyes has a strong historical reputation for delivering quality, durability, innovation, and unparalleled expertise. With Rotomaster now part of the Cloyes family, the company will continue its expansion of application-specific products and solutions for the most demanding vehicles on the road – now and into the future. In addition, Rotomaster covers more than 75% of the addressable vehicles-in-operation (VIO) today, which will further expand the number of Cloyes’ customers.
"We are pleased to announce our partnership with Cloyes, a move driven by the alignment of our extensive product portfolios, both of which have the high-quality manufacturing standards expected by our valued customers," stated Garret Wiebe, Rotomaster General Manager.
