In the dynamic world of the automotive industry, Litens® Aftermarket has remained a beacon of consistency and quality for over four decades.

Founded in 1979, we began on a journey that transformed the very essence of vehicle performance with the development of the world’s first automatic tensioner for the accessory drive belt developed for the 4.9L V-8 Ford Mustang and Mercury Capri. Litens has continued to be the first to market in accessory drive belt component innovation being the first production suppliers of OE Tensioners within the European and Japanese Markets as well.

But our legacy doesn’t stop there. Our technology is now applied globally to more than half of the vehicles on the road today. Our torsional vibration damping products, for example the Overrunning Alternator Decoupler (OADTM), are still the same premium OEM quality as found in Aftermarket.

We have an extensive portfolio of international design patents and trademarks that are focused on reducing emissions while improving fuel economy, performance, and passenger experience.

From development centers to state-of-the-art manufacturing plants in regions including Germany, Brazil, China, India, and North America, we ensure our unmatched touch of quality and expertise reaches every corner of the automotive world.
