Leading local advanced suspension manufacturer, Supashock is preparing to support and create jobs in the Australian automotive industry by expanding its reach into sectors well beyond the racetrack.
The proudly Australian owned company featured in a ground-breaking story on popular Network 7 current affairs program, Today Tonight Adelaide on Wednesday, 12 August
Over the last five years, Adelaide-based Supashock has established its reputation in the high-tech, competitive, professional motorsport world domain, applying its high standards and innovative approach to achieve its success in a wide range of disciplines across both domestic and international competition. Using bespoke in-house designs covering initial concept through to drafting, manufacturing, assembly and packaging, Supashock has already succeeded in circuit racing, rallying and sportscar endurance racing.
Such is the momentum of this modest but progressive business that its in-house designed and built suspension dampers were fitted to the winning car in last year’s iconic Bathurst 1000 V8 Supercar race, and are currently leading the 2015 V8 Supercar Championship.
Supashock Managing Director Oscar Fiorinotto is determined to make the most of the manufacturing/engineering expertise of the Supashock team, and state-of-the-art facilities. He is committed to using these resources to service other areas of the automotive industry, and is passionate about his business’s contribution to the South Australian economy.
“The Australian automotive industry is undergoing a radical transformation, with local manufacturing of Holden, Ford and Toyota vehicles set to wind up in the near future,” Mr Fiorinotto said.
“As a technology company operating in the automotive manufacturing industry, Supashock now has a golden opportunity to preserve and support jobs that may otherwise be lost.
“Unlike a host of manufactured imports that are primarily built to a price, we are a business that prides ourselves on service, innovation and meticulous quality control, while remaining very conscious of the need for value. As we have grown, we have consciously nurtured our capability to adapt skills, services and products for other technology sectors and will continue our drive into areas including aftermarket components for four-wheel-drives, and heavy-duty systems for mining applications.”
After achieving widespread motorsport success, Supashock is now using that expertise to expand into other areas, benefiting the South Australian economy.
