trip to dog lane

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - SPECIALREPORT -

In the early ’80s, John Agostino was a flight stew­ard on Aus­tralian air­line Qan­tas. The sus­pen­sion bug bit af­ter he helped a friend bring back a set of shocks from the USA.

John had to over­come plenty of chal­lenges in the early years and even had to sell his house to raise enough cap­i­tal to get the busi­ness off the ground. The rest, as they say, is his­tory. To­day Tough Dog sus­pen­sion parts are sold in 28 coun­tries around the world.

The com­pany says one of the big­gest rea­sons it has be­come so suc­cess­ful is the fact that all the prod­ucts are de­vel­oped and tested in the Aus­tralian Out­back: a right old tough place. If the parts can sur­vive there, they can sur­vive just about any­where.
