Who we are


WAY ASSAUTO is an historic Italian Company: founded in Turin in 1906, it has moved to Asti in 1908, beginning to manufacture components for the mechanical and automotive industries.

WAY ASSAUTO has always produced mechanical fittings, but during the two World Wars it had to convert the production for military purposes. The breakthrough in technology and productivity occurred in 1968 thanks to the design and production of the first “Mac Pherson” shock absorber for Fiat Automobiles.

During the following years WAY ASSAUTO changed its managements and in 2000, with the merger between Arvin and Meritor, it became “ArvinMeritor Suspension System Italia”. In 2006 the “Astigiana Ammortizzatori” buys the Asti plant and restores the name WAY ASSAUTO.

In 2011 Cijan Group buys WAY ASSAUTO allowing investments in terms of human resources, technologies, productivity and customer focus. All these elements are part of our mission and vision.


Today WAY ASSAUTO is a competitor at national and international level with a wide range of products and industrial offers able to satisfy the most challenging markets.

With its experience in the field, WAY ASSAUTO is a company able to design and produce any kind of shock absorber in accordance to the safety and environmental requirements and compliance to the laws and rules.

Product performance and reliability are guaranteed by dimensional checks on incoming materials, checks during production process, laboratory tests through static, dynamic, functional and duration tests performed with mechanical and hydraulic machines.
