KYB Americas Announces Completion of Technical Center Expansion

KYB Americas is proud to announce the completed expansion of the KYB Technical Center. The Technical Center operates next to KYB’s 575,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Franklin, Indiana and houses the latest in new product development, quality control, and conditions testing equipment.

The expansion included an additional 12,000 square feet of floor space utilized by KYB engineers to run a battery of tests on new shock and strut designs.  Additional valve seal durability, stress, vibration and fatigue tolerance testing are among the many new capabilities housed in the latest expansion.  Additionally, complete CNC machining & welding allows the KYB engineering team to fully concept, build and assemble prototypes right on the tech center floor.
