GPC AP representatives acknowledged that, with its light weight and high torque, the M128 was a game-changer in heavy-duty starter design. Customers can now change these units on many common applications without a two-man lift and market uptake has been very positive, says Prestolite Electric.

Prestolite Electric manufacturers a variety of 100-percent new premium starters and alternators that are available to original equipment manufacturers and distributed to the aftermarket around the world. 

“We take great pride in engineering and manufacturing starter motors that absolutely thrive in even the most extreme environments and applications, and we’re excited to have earned this award from GPC Asia Pacific for our popular M128 starter,” said Prestolite Electric’s Vice President of Sales for North America, South America and Australia Nick Laenen.
