AL-KO Record, a pioneer in the manufacture of shock absorbers in Spain, offers a wide range of shock absorbers and suspension elements, backed by its engineering versatility that provides innovative technical solutions to meet the needs of its customers.
This fact has lead AL-KO to carry out – in all its plants – major investments in research and testing facilities, as well as in expansions and refurbishments with the objective of implementing a flexible, efficient and profitable production, also in small series. All this serves to make AL-KO a competent party in developing effective solutions in the field of suspension.
The commitment to customers challenges the design capacity of AL-KO and the rationality of its manufacturing processes. To that end, AL-KO engineering earmarks significant resources to ensure the basic features of its products: accuracy and durability. The Abadiano Centre for Technical Proficiency is equipped with research and testing facilities which enable to reproduce in the laboratory the behaviour of the suspension under any circumstances. The manufacturing processes include wide-ranging possibilities from very flexible semi-automatic processes up to a high degree of automation and robotization. AL-KO applies its R&D+i know-how providing reliability to its products through continuous life tests that guarantee an accurate and long-lasting operation.
AL-KO supplies shock absorbers for various types of vehicles such as trucks, buses and passenger vehicles. Its shock absorbers are applied in solar panels as well as in the railway industry. For example, in locomotives, carriages and pantographs.
The company is the European market leader for the commercial vehicles industry providing pneumatic suspension solutions. It also manufactures shock absorbers for cabs, tractors and buses. Moreover, the permanent investment in research processes, allows the annual addition of new models.
