Starting in the family garage out of Punta Gorda, Florida, Adam Arnott discovered his passion for working on and building cars. His father, Donald Arnott, recognized and encouraged Adam’s automotive aptitude and interest. The pair began traveling throughout Florida with the goal of repairing air suspension problems along the way. This was often done for little to no fee.
In 1989, this dedication for cars and helping others laid the foundation for Arnott Industries. Now, Arnott has become the most successful, advanced and innovative automotive air suspension manufacturer in the world.
Over 30 Years of Innovation & Quality
Today at Arnott
We have grown to offer over 450 products that cover more than 800 applications. Our air suspension product line has expanded to include remanufactured OE air struts, new air struts, magnetic shocks, air springs, air suspension compressors, coil spring conversion kits, valve blocks and ride height sensors. Arnott has become the one-stop shop for all air suspension needs.
In our Research & Development Center, experienced engineers develop Arnott products with a focus on improvement and innovation. Used OE cores are examined to find common failing points. The engineering team uses 3D design software to design prototypes. These designs are then brought to life with high-end 3D printers.
Dedicated CNC machines produce working parts. They are tested on a large, in-house fleet and test track. Once a part passes every test with flying colors, the finished product is ready to be produced.
Production CNC Machines that are similar to the ones used to create the working prototypes are used for the final product.
We also offer remanufactured air struts and shocks. The Core Recycling program is the first step in this process. To keep air strut and shock cores out of landfills, we purchase them. These used cores are brought to our dedicated core facility.
The cores are sent through inspections. Those that pass are recharged with performance shock oil. Then, internal components are replaced, and the shock is sealed with a new aluminum top.
Every shock is Dyno tested for OE quality and applied with paint designed to prevent corrosion. Assemblers rebuild the struts and shocks by hand with the same components as new Arnott products. After a final quality test, the part is ready to be released.
