Australian actuation, isolation and suspension specialist Air Springs Supply was host this month to the Asia-Pacific conference of the air springs supplier, Firestone.
Firestone headed a group of the company’s key executives for the region meeting with distributors and country managers to plan growth extending from Australasia to South Asia, China and India.
Air Springs Supply said the powerful growth of Air Springs actuation, isolation and suspension business in Australasia demonstrated the huge potential in the region, particularly as China and India opened up for business.
According to Air Springs Supply, Pneumatic technologies are ideal for new industries requiring clean, reliable and cost-efficient means of actuation and isolation, involving applications extending right through from food and packaging to heavy resources development. The transport industries of these nations also will be heavily focused on air suspension, as they integrate their operations and technologies with world leaders who have already moved from metal springs to air springs.
Air Spring Supply’s Firestone Industrial products include Airstroke actuators, Airmount isolator springs, Marsh Mellow isolator springs and Airpicker and Airgripper (pick and place) materials handling products. Transport products include Firestone Airide springs, which fit virtually all major brands of heavy vehicle and are OEM equipment on global leaders in their field.
Air Springs Supply is also sole Australian importers for the Firestone Ride Rite , Sport Rite, Coil Rite and Inteli-Ride range of air suspension products with applications for most 4WD and light commercial vehicles.
