Dobinsons launches its springs and suspension range in Oman
Dobinsons, the world renowned manufacturer of springs, suspension and other components for 4WDs, launched a series of products with the local partner Avatar Motors in Ma’abela on Monday.
The company manufactures and repairs a large range of springs and sells a comprehensive range of suspension compo- nents.
Brothers Glen and Keith Dobinson, directors of the company, were at the media briefing attended by several delegates and officials from the automobile industry.
Glen said, “Our company is based in Australia and we’ve been in the market since 1953. Half of the terrain in Australia is desert, and hence we are confident that our products will be well accepted in Oman because of similar landscape. We are in Oman for the first time; we already have an office in Dubai.”
He added that Dobinsons exports a range of spring products to over 50 countries around the world and they are popular because of the quality and strength.
“Though SUVs come with enough springs, at times some 4WDs engage in frequent adventure trips on rough roads and mountains. That’s the time when special high-end and powerful hydraulic springs and suspension are needed for an evenly balanced drive for safety. The weight of the car needs to be evenly distributed and well proportioned,” he said.
The special components of 4WDs can also be used for military vehicles and ones used in adventure sports, he added.
The launch event, held at Hotel Muscat Holiday, was organised by Orbit Events Management.
