ACS EXPANDS US PERFORMANCE BRAND
XClutch has introduced several new performance upgrades
Australian Clutch Services (ACS) is continuing its US brand expansion despite the current export difficulties facing the Australian automotive aftermarket.
Since the XClutch US performance brand was established in 2016, ACS says the brand has continued to develop rapidly and is quickly becoming popular in this expansive market for aftermarket performance parts.
The XClutch brand specialises in performance street and motorsport clutch kits and accessories, just like its Australian equivalent, Xtreme Clutch.
The range has been altered slightly to meet the needs of the US market and includes upgrades for vehicles that were never delivered to Australia.
With the brand quickly evolving and demand for these performance upgrades increasing rapidly, XClutch has introduced several new performance upgrades including multi-plate kits to suit the Shelby GT350 and several upgrades for various generations of Corvettes.
XClutch has also been on display at a number of events throughout the US including LS Fest East which was held from the 11th to the 13th of September and GRIDLIFE Midwest Festival held from the 1st to the 4th of October.
ACS says these shows provided the opportunity to showcase some of XClutch’s top street performance and Motorsport upgrades for various LS V8 powered vehicles as well as its “exceptional” performance range of Japanese applications.
“Our XClutch brand has seen significant growth recently, mainly due to strong stock levels in our US warehouse as well as our increased brand exposure,” Australian Clutch Services Export Sales Specialist, Chris Meadows, said.
“Our stand at SEMA show in Las Vegas last year was a major boost and we have a full-time sales representative in the US to support this quickly evolving market.”
The US market has seen a number of significant challenges throughout the past 24 months, with uncertainty around government regulations regarding imported automotive components as well as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, however Australian Clutch Services says the brand has remained strong throughout these challenges and is continuing to expand.
“2020 has bought with it a number of challenges for our export business but we have managed to navigate these successfully so far and are working hard to offer the same levels of service and support that is required in this fast-paced market,” Chris said.
“The car parc in the US is different to Australia and Europe. Although we have already covered a massive proportion of this market, it is important to ensure we cover all of the US specific vehicles as well as any changing market trends or demands.”
