Magnum Gaskets, an MSI brand, has announced plans for a major product line expansion in the fourth quarter of 2012, which the company says will more than double the gasket sales potential for Magnum’s aftermarket distribution partners.
Magnum Gaskets said the success of its extensive line of premium-quality manifold, oil pan and valve cover gaskets opens the door for this exclusive line of head gaskets and head sets.
“Magnum’s entry into the premium-quality head gasket/head set market is the most important change to the gasket supply landscape in more than 30 years,” said Alex Grunfeld, Magnum’s vice president. “The fourth quarter introduction coincides perfectly with the opening of our new, state-of-the-art facility in Pinellas Park, FL.”
“Our expert gasket engineers have created a broad range of head gaskets and head sets that match the superior levels of performance and value our customers have already come to expect from Magnum,” added Derek Data, Magnum’s director of strategic development. “You will see coverage for the most popular domestic and import vehicles, utilizing several exclusive, application-specific gasket constructions.”
For nearly 20 years, Magnum’s parent company, Modern Silicone Technologies Inc. (MSI), has manufactured gaskets for major aftermarket brands and original equipment manufacturers. More than 90 percent of Magnum products are designed, manufactured and packaged in the U.S. According to the company, the current Magnum Gasket line covers more than 80 percent of sales in manifold, valve cover and oil pan gasket categories for domestic and import cars and light trucks.
The gasket sets contain everything the technician will need for a successful repair and every part meets or exceeds OEM standards, the company says. Sets are packaged in durable boxes with informative tri-lingual labels and installation guides.
