By definition, engineering is the creative application of science, to the innovation, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of machines, materials, and devices, for a real-life benefit. ATRO was founded in 1987 in St. Clair, Missouri by the accomplished engineer, George Sturmon – and engineering remains at our core today.
Our focus has been heavy-duty trucks from the start. What got us rolling was a problem with rubber bushings. Rubber was the industry standard, and fleet owners found rubber didn’t last very long. As engineers, we could see the solution. So, we designed a way to replace rubber with new materials to last longer and perform better.
We’ve created eleven different polyurethane blends, each chemically resistant, and each just plain stronger. The poly blend we use depends on what the part does: load-bearing, dampening, transmission, shock absorption, or stabilization. Whatever the job, ATRO parts do it better.
