Portlaoise Springs has launched its 2020 Leaf Spring Catalogue, which is available in hard copy or can be downloaded.

Portlaoise Springs, which will be exhibiting at the CV Workshop EXPO, is Ireland’s one stop shop for all leaf spring requirements offering not just the largest range of springs but also the most in-depth knowledge and best customer service.

Established in 1987, the company has been in new ownership since 2016 and has continued to grow, through investment, extension of product ranges and new technology.

Leaf springs are a crucial component in commercial vehicles and are found on vans, trucks, buses and 4×4 vehicles. A leaf spring is the component responsible for carrying the vehicle’s load.

Every single journey taken requires the vehicle’s leaf springs to support its load and deliver the goods on time. When a leaf spring breaks the vehicle can not be driven and a stationary vehicle with not generate income for its owner. This positions Portlaose Springs as an integral part of the Irish transport industry.

The company works with hree of the world’s leading leaf spring manufacturers to deliver consistent OEM quality leaf springs to its wide customer base.
