Seeking to serve its customers with high quality products, GMB is a company that’s best known for its water pumps, hub assemblies, universal joints, and tensioner idler bearings. It manufactures various car parts for European, Asian, and domestic makers and their many models.
Merging two companies into one
In 1976 and 1977, two GMB Universal Joint companies were incorporated. One of them was in New Jersey while the other one was out west. They would become reunited in 1988 under the banner of GMB North America, Incorporated.
New products and locations
In 2001, GMB began manufacturing tension idlers and selling them. Five years later, the company relocated its headquarters from California to New Jersey. Meanwhile in 2008, it began creating and distributing wheel hub assemblies. Recently in 2010, it expanded to a new location in New Jersey while moving its headquarters to Japan.
Apart from the New Jersey headquarters, GMB still has a California facility as well as several locations globally. It has factories and centers in China, Korea, Thailand, and Japan.
