Midway Industries, producers of Centerforce performance clutches, is the aftermarket industry's biggest national manufacturer of clutch and pressure plate systems. Centerforce was born in the 1980s out of Hot Rodder Bill Hays' efforts to design a clutch that could perform up to the demands of racetrack conditions with the use of non-asbestos friction facings. Hays' design was a success and the Centerforce Weighted Clutch System was patented. Midway Industries is still a three generation family run business and Centerforce products are still manufactured stateside in Prescott, Arizona. Midway Industries is extremely proud of Bill Hays' legacy of Centerforce clutches and seeks to continue offering Jeep drivers unmatched innovation and quality. Shop Centerforce Now
