"We are what we do, day by day. So excellence is not an act but a habit."


To guarantee the reliability, safety and maximum performance of our products, our engineers not only rely on state-of-the-art technology, but they also apply a transversal quality plan that involves both productive and human resources.


In our quality control laboratories, all components undergo a rigorous quality testing program.

For this we have equipment such as:

  • 3D measuring machines for our laboratory and production
  • Saline fog testing chamber.
  • Metallographic laboratory.
  • Machines for destructive and non-destructive testing.
    • Welding resistors
    • Resistors of non-welded joints
    • Fatigue resistance of components
    • Life cycle trials of the assembled units.
    • Environmental trials. Cold, from -50ºC and Heat up to 90ºC.
    • Bending and buckling tests
    • Tempering penetrations
    • Penetrations and structure of the welds.
    • Studies of immersion in oil of the pieces painted at different temperatures



As well as tests and measurements of the different parts that make up the shock absorber:

  • Measurements of the hardness of the different materials used.
  • Measurements of the chromium and nickel layers.
  • Layer measurements of the different paints used.
  • Thermographic measurements.
  • Density measurements.
  • Measurements of the chemicals integrated in the processes.
  • Spectrometry.
  • Roughness measurement


Certified Quality

We are certified by the ISO9001_2008, which demonstrates our ability to consistently provide products based on a quality management system, which meet customer and regulatory requirements.


We are certified by the ISO / TS 16949 certification, based on the implementation of an ISO 9001 quality management system for mass production and spare parts in the automotive industry, with the objective of continuous improvement emphasizing on the prevention of defects and in the reduction of waste in the supply chain.


Other distinctions have also highlighted our approach to quality, such as the Quality Award of the "Principado de Asturias" (1997) and we were finalists in the Príncipe Felipe Awards for Business Excellence (1999).
