Denver, Colorado--Gates Corp is exiting the airspring business and plans to sell its assets in that area. The company currently makes airsprings for automotive and industrial applications, mostly in plants in Aachen, Germany and Lerma, Mexico.

Gates said in a statement, "All new business development activities will cease immediately.Â Â The division's efforts will shift to finding a buyer for the business or develop and implement transition plans for current AirSprings customers."
