Tenneco Monroe – CVA an alliance that positioned the Argentine industry within the high standards of vehicular verification with the Suspension Bank patented by the INPI.
Creation of Auto OK in Argentina
Fric-Rot Monroe presents its Auto OK Services Network for the control and diagnosis of the suspension system. The Auto OK centers have technical support Fric Rot Monroe providing advisory services and diagnosis of the state of the suspension of the vehicle. For that, state-of-the-art equipment developed by CVA was used.
Creole vanguard: the “Catu Móvil” is born
Fric-Rot Monroe, world leader in the manufacture of shock absorbers, develops together with CVA the Catu Móvil, a suspension analysis bench (very similar to those of the VTV) in which a check is made on the state of the vehicle suspension . The Catu Móvil carried out numerous campaigns throughout the country.
CVA pioneer in the reconversion of European products in the Official Technical Verification Plants
After the 2001 crisis, CVA began to provide equipment and maintenance to the main Verificadoras, counteracting the abandonment of the European companies that originally equipped the first official plants. In this way CVA managed to reconvert and provide 90% of the Technical Review Plants in Argentina.
Auto OK and Monroe proliferate in Brazil: Curitiba, Tayahi and Florianopolis, among other cities. 14 trips per year were made to Rio do Sud in order to equip the region through Fric-Rot and CVB (Control Vehicular Brazil). In addition, close to 100 products are distributed in Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia and a large part of Central America, including El Salvador, Puerto Rico and Belize, among others.
