Tokico, one of the largest manufacturers of shocks in the world, is announcing a new website for their performance branded shocks, allowing consumers interested in a slightly stiffer, more responsive suspension an easy way to seek out the company’s newest applications and learn about their five unique lines of shocks.
Tokico’s new website, www.tokicoshocks.com, provides quick access to important features of each series of performance shock absorbers Tokico offers. An easy to read applications list is also available, specifying which lines of shock absorbers fit each vehicle.
According to Brian Patrias, General Manager of Tokico Shocks USA, “We’re very excited to debut the new Tokico website. Knowing the importance of accurate up-to-date information, we have been focusing our efforts into improving the availability of the brand and its application information. The new website is a major step forward in making this possible.”
Tokico Gas Shocks, a division of Hitachi Automotive Systems, has been manufacturing original equipment shock absorbers for over 70 years and are one of the leaders in gas shock innovation. The same award-winning technology that goes into Tokico shock absorbers for OE applications is used in every performance shock absorber Tokico manufactures. Tokico was also the first company to develop a twin tube, low-pressure gas shock absorber. Designed to be stiffer than OE shock absorbers, Tokico shocks are built for performance in mind, with some models offering adjustable damping to allow the user to customize their suspension even more.
Headquartered in Kanagawa, Japan, Tokico is a division of Hitachi Automotive Systems, Ltd. The global shock absorber supplier manufactures OE products for many of the world’s top manufacturers as well as producing products for the performance aftermarket. Tokico is credited with developing the first twin tube low-pressure shock absorber and is one of the largest suppliers of OE shocks in Japan.
