JKF Americas Inc. is bringing its Top Drive line of power transmission products to the Americas.

The company announced that the launch of the Top Drive brand is especially timely for businesses that have been wading through delays and shortages in the supply chain. The brand will launch in the north, central and South American markets.

JFK Americas is a subsidiary of JK Fenner (India) Ltd.

Top Drive industrial power transmission products include belts — classical V belts, wrapped belts, raw-edge cogged belts, poly-V belts, banded belts, synchronous belts, harvester belts and specialty belts —  V-cool pulleys, couplings and SMSR and hydraulic and industrial hoses.

Top Drive will debut during Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week at AAPEX. The booth will include belts – poly-V belts, stretch poly-V belts, double sided poly-V belts, raw edge cog belts — along with hoses, including radiator, air intake, branched, silicon and fuel, as well as auto tensioners.
