Koni ITT Shock Absorbers To Sponsor Forum

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



Hebron, KY, March 8, 2010 -- Koni North America the producers of the Adjustable and FSD Shock absorbers has joined the family of iRV2 sponsors and is pleased to begin sponsoring the iRV2 Forums.

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.

I think it's great news as well as I'm a Koni Fan and using them on our coach. Don't know if Justin is still with Koni, but he was very helpful on occasions I've spoken with him.

I had the pleasure of meeting him at the 2007 FMCA convention in Perry GA. A real fine young man.

LVJ48, Justin has moved either up the ladder or laterally with the company but I believe he's working a different part of the product line. Jim Ryan is now working the position. He's a great guy too!

Thanks Mike, that's great news for Justin as I'm sure he's a real asset to the Company and his move was well deserved.

Perhaps I'll get a chance to meet Jim at some future convention or maybe if we make it to Quartzsite next year and he's there.

Do take care and best regards, Jim
