The high performance aftermarket is like any other industry in the world when it comes to doing business the right way. You have to have good products, good processes, and good people to succeed. The industry is also similar to others in the sense that there are singular people who carve out their own space in the market and carry with them a lot of knowledge and experience.
In the world of aftermarket clutches Will Baty is that guy. Baty has joined the team at McLeod as an R&D specialist as well as an off-road products specialist. It’s pretty neat to see him in this dual role. We’ve known Will for years and his attention to detail and want to solve problems is nearly unparalleled in this corner of the market. Look for the new stuff and the new off-road stuff to start rolling hot and heavy once Will really gets his hooks into the business!
Congrats to Will and McLeod for making this happen.
