ABOUT KONI

 KONI has been in business for 150 years, involved in automobile dampers since 1932 and has produced adjustable telescopic dampers since 1945. In addition, though known best for cars, KONI also builds shocks for trucks, buses, RVs and railway rolling stock as well. What this adds up to is well-earned design and manufacturing experience.

As the maker of the industry’s very first adjustable shock absorber, electronic drag racing shocks and today’s patented FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) street shocks, KONI has long demonstrated that product improvement means product innovation.
As a niche maker of high-performance shocks, KONI is small enough to interact with its customers on a regular basis, even having a Tech Line staffed every working day with KONI technicians, many of whom are car enthusiasts just like you. What this means is that you receive the personal attention missing in most product businesses today.
 
Since 1972 KONI has been part of the global engineering and manufacturing company called ITT, with 40,000 employees worldwide and 2007 sales of $9 billion. They are the world's premier supplier of fluid pumps, a supplier of sophisticated electronics to military defense and a producer of electronic components for telecommunications, including aerospace and industrial and a maker of motion and flow control products for industrial, marine, leisure and transportation markets. KONI is part of Motion and Flow Control and is probably the best-known retail brand of all the group's products. Its nice to know that a small damper manufacturer has the resources and technology of a large company like ITT behind it.

Situated in Oud-Beyerland just south of Rotterdam in the Netherlands, KONI began business in 1857, manufacturing horse harnesses and upholstery. By 1918 production switched
to spring covers and later, metal car panel beating/spraying.

By 1932 KONI started the production of friction shock absorbers and by 1945 the factory produced the industry's first adjustable shock absorbers for cars and trucks, soon followed by dampers for railway cars. Since 1950 KONI has developed from a skilled local company into a multinational shock absorber specialist, with subsidiaries in Germany, France and the US and independent national distributors in more than ninety
countries.

KONI today is recognized as the quality shock absorber maker par excellence, focusing solely on high-performance suspension damping technology for cars, racing, trucks, buses, RVs and railway rolling stock. From our 20,000 square foot facility near Cincinnati, Ohio, KONI services include technical support, customer service, product development, fabrication and distribution.
