24/7 test bed.
That's why ACS recently purchased
two brand new vehicles as development
platforms for its Clutchpro OE quality
clutch and Xtreme Outback 4x4

brands of pad ranges.
Like all Protex products, they are sourced from
world leading suppliers which are quality accredited
and built to original equipment standards.
"We've wanted to make this range available both
as part of the overall development of the Protex
brand and to meet a regular need in the market," ATAP's Carlee Moore said.
"We also want to meet the needs of the fitters whereby modern vehicles require the sensors
to be changed at every pad change.
"To simplify things we're selling one sensor per bag giving resellers a real choice and ability
to pass on the savings and impress customers."
