Arnott® Air Suspension Products — the leader in aftermarket automotive air suspension parts and accessories — announced the opening of a European Union branch office and distribution center.

Arnott, with worldwide headquarters in one of the former Sea Ray facilities on Merritt Island, makes air suspension replacement products for many European, Japanese, and American cars, trucks, and SUVs.

The recent opening of the EU site is another significant milestone in Arnott’s classic American success story. With simple ‘father and son in Florida garage’ roots dating back to 1989, Arnott has grown to approximately 170 employees from a headcount of 75 since moving from a 44,000-square foot Cape Canaveral site to the current 200,000-square foot location less than three years ago.

The EU facility, located in the Netherlands, provides local sales and support, faster shipping, payment in local currencies, and an easier way for the growing legion of European customers to return and sell air suspension cores to Arnott.

“Opening the European Union facility is the logical result of Arnott’s significant and growing worldwide product popularity,” said Arnott’s Todd Nash, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. “One of the key aspects of what we like to call ‘The Arnott Advantage’ is a culture of product quality and intense commitment to customer satisfaction, including accurate order fulfillment and prompt shipping. Having dedicated Arnott employees in the European Union as opposed to simply serving the European Union truly makes ‘The Arnott Advantage’ a worldwide reality.”

Benefits to EU customers and distributors include:

  • Reduced Shipping Costs and Transit Times – Shipping cost is reduced by as much as 80{099636d13cf70efd8d812c6f6a5a855fb6f8f27f35bea282d2df1d5ae896e2c2} and same-day service is available for in-stock orders placed by 2:00 PM CET.
  • Eliminated Duties and Taxes – Duties and customs fees are included. VAT charges are eliminated for VAT-registered companies.
  • Euro & Local Currencies Accepted – Arnott Europe accepts direct bank transfer payments in Euros and charges no foreign transaction or bank fees.
  • Remanufactured Product Availability – Arnott’s remanufactured products are available to EU customers who previously had to send a core in advance. The EU facility serves as a hub for the return and purchase of air suspension cores for recycling.
