KYB Americas recently hosted U.S. Senator Todd Young at its Franklin, Ind., manufacturing facility. The senator’s visit included a plant tour, as well as a meeting with KYB staff in which several issues threatening the industry were discussed.

Topics included the consumer’s right to access vehicle data, 301 China Tariffs as well as the proposed 232 Auto Tariffs.

“It is quite an honor to have a U.S. senator visit our facility, he was incredibly gracious and listened intently to our concerns,“ said KYB Director of Product and Marketing Aaron Shaffer. “We had a great dialog, I believe the visit helped provide the senator with a good understanding of the challenges our industry is facing. We look forward to continuing our conversation with Senator Young during the Autocare Legislative Summit in September.”

The senator’s visit was coordinated by the Auto Care Association and KYB.

KYB Corporation is a $4.2 billion global hydraulics manufacturer with over 8,100 employees and sells its products in over 100 countries. The company is one of the world’s largest suppliers of shocks and struts to vehicle manufacturers and has a full range of domestic and import shocks and struts for the aftermarket.
