Tenneco, a leading global manufacturer of ride control and emission control products, is celebrating the centennial of the Monroe shock absorber brand and previewing an array of next-generation suspension and exhaust technologies at Automechanika, Frankfurt in hall 4, C11 from September 13 to 17.
The Monroe’s founders pioneered the dual-action hydraulic shock – the Monroe shock eliminator – in the 1920s, and the brand has continued to build on this heritage of innovation.
Today, Tenneco is one of the largest suspension manufacturers in the world with more than 90 million shocks and struts produced in 2015 for car manufacturers and the aftermarket.
The company is a global leader in conventional and advanced OE suspension including adaptive, semi-active and active suspension solutions that can be tailored to very specific driving preferences and environments.
Bruce Ronning, vice president and general manager at Tenneco Europe Aftermarket, said: “Our leading OE position in the ride control, suspension and emission control categories represents an important competitive advantage for the workshops that choose Monroe and Walker aftermarket products for their customers’ vehicles.
“Shocks, struts and suspension parts are largely invisible to the consumer.
“We invest in innovative education programs that illustrate the vital benefits of replacing worn parts.
“It’s all about consumers’ awareness and safety through better, stronger relationships with their vehicle service providers.”
Tenneco also provides programs and technical support to help ensure that workshop professionals are able to quickly, efficiently and accurately diagnose and repair even the most complex ride control, suspension and emission control issues.
The “B-Connected” initiative, which includes free, 24/7 access to world-class tools such as the Technicians Advanced Digital Information System (TADIS), includes thousands of technical resources such as videos, e-learning modules, specification sheets, diagnostic tips, fitting instructions, and more.
Each of these resources is available free-of-charge through the “B-Connected” link on the Monroe website.
