As a performance shock manufacturer, JRi shocks has secured their spot in the aftermarket industry as a high-quality producer. With the recent acquisition of AccuAir, Arnott now has the resources to expand it’s industry-leading air suspension portfolio in the SEMA performance market. This allows Arnott to reach customers that own street cars, trucks, motorcycles, Jeeps, and UTVS.
JRi Shocks will continue to service their existing customer, but will not have the ability to grow these markets while expanding into markets they were not capable of before. JRi Shocks customers will not experience any change in day-to-day operations and continue to order their favorite products through JRi.
“Arnott has exceptional engineering capabilities and has a reputation for producing high-performance products,” said Joe Santangelo, CEO of Arnott. “AccuAir, added to the Arnott portfolio last year, provides the leading air suspension management system on the market today. Bringing JRi Shocks into the fold enables Arnott to offer the best aftermarket replacement air suspension, the leading air suspension management system, as well as some of the best performance shocks in the world.”
When asked about the acquisition by Aftermarket News, Jeff Ryan, the owner of JRi Shocks stated, “The last few years we have focused on expanding our world class racing products, allowing more enthusiasts to experience JRi Shocks.” “It was a natural progression of our expertise and now we will be able to take it even further under the Arnott umbrella.”
“After three years of owning JRi, we arrived at a point where our growth potential was being held back by the resources we had at hand. We needed a partner to take the company to the next level,” said Evernham. “Arnott’s enthusiasm for what JRi stands for and its track record of leading companies to extraordinary growth made Arnott the perfect fit to become that partner. I look forward to continuing to support the company’s growth.”
We here at AccuAir are excited for this acquisition and look forward to expanding our market with the help of JRi Shocks.
