Transfer of Technology for Air Suspension Springs


Ever since the discovery of pneumatic technology, the propelling effects of its use can be seen in almost every sector of the economy. Air suspension system is one such invention in this regard, which is widely used in automotive and locomotive industry. It is used to support the vehicle on the axles with the help of air bags instead of steel springs in order to provide a smooth riding experience to the passengers.
Hence, there lies a huge potential in this sector to become one of the leading sub- sectors in the automotive industry. Keeping this view in mind, an Indian company established its operations to manufacture the automotive suspension and fastening components for all types of Indian and International vehicles (LCVs, MCVs, HVCs), Trailers and Special Purpose Vehicles. Its mission is to become a global company providing total business solutions through quality products, and system services in the field of automotive suspension components. The product portfolio includes a diversified range of automotive components, starting from leaf bolts, spring bolt W nut, casting products, bushes to shaft components, trailer axle and trailer suspension & sub-assemblies. Moreover, the company soon gained the title of leading and fastest growing Indian manufacturer in this sector.


During the 1970s, the company started offering its business services to the global players and captured a significant market segment ever since. Some of the leading countries where it has a strong presence include UK, Germany, USA, UAE, Morocco, Egypt, Malaysia, and Singapore. Moreover, the company serves casting components, CNC machining, VMC machining and other automotive components to some of the leading OEMs such as Ashok Leyland, Mahindra & Mahindra (NISSAN), Hindustan Motors Ltd, Maruti Udyog Ltd (SUZUKI) and many more.

Agenda for Expansion

Having achieved an enormous amount of success in the automotive suspension and fabricated components, the company wanted to expand its operations in the manufacturing of Air suspension springs for railways and automotives. However, it was facing challenges in terms of the technology to do so. Hence, the company’s brief was to look for a collaborative partner in order to facilitate an efficient production process.
