2019 marked Arnott's 30th Anniversary of manufacturing quality aftermarket air suspension products for luxury vehicles and motorcycles. In 1989, at the age of twelve, Adam Arnott developed a fascination for automobiles, and motorcycles, spending most of his free time tinkering in his parents' garage in Punta Gorda, Florida. His father, Donald Arnott, an avid motorcycle rider, immediately recognized his son's mechanical aptitude and encouraged young Adam's interest. The next year the pair began traveling throughout Florida, repairing automobile air suspension problems, often for little or no fee. Adam's passion, coupled with Donald's selfless satisfaction of helping others, laid the foundation for what would become the most successful, advanced, and innovative air suspension products manufacturer in the world.
Encouraged by the early acceptance, Adam and Donald wanted to take their young company to the next level - they wanted to develop their own products: including a luxury brand of air suspension products for motorcycles. After listening to customer needs they tirelessly researched and tested original equipment shocks, and soon discovered that they could improve upon existing motorcycle suspension parts by making them height adjustable. Arnott's onboard switch and compressor provides almost three inches of travel which enabled riders to rest flat footed while stopped or maneuvering their bikes while parking and provides an easier way for riders and their passengers to mount their ride. With a press of a button, riders can then raise their motorcycles before taking off and adjust the amount of air for road and load conditions. Arnott's exclusive Ultimate and Smooth Ride Kits shocks add both compression and rebound damping control for added ride comfort.
From that Punta Gorda, Florida garage to a modest 1,000-square-foot space in a South Florida... To a larger facility in Central Florida... To several growth-driven sites along Florida's Space Coast including Port Canaveral and now Merritt Island... Today Arnott Air Suspension is a bustling campus of nearly 21 acres and 300,000 square feet including multi-line manufacturing processes with laser-cutting machinery, state-of-the-art distribution, and a multi-lingual call center. In addition, Arnott recently christened a new Engineering/Research and Development center dedicated to developing, testing and producing air suspension products worthy of the company slogan:
"Engineered to Ride, Built to Last®"
All told, Arnott's success is largely the result of daily, painstaking attention to the core beliefs of customer service excellence, incorporating the highest quality components, and providing truly affordable products backed by superior warranties. Today, Arnott continues to innovate with additional U.S. and international warehouses, a massive increase in research and development, and unprecedented product availability through the industry's leading motorcycle parts distributors.
