The head office of AL-KO in Spain is located in Abadiano (Biscay). The plant dates back to 1975 and has undergone three refurbishments, between 1995 and 2001, having a surface area over 16,000 m2. In these plants, the AL-KO shock absorbers follow a manufacturing process of short and medium series based on the criteria of flexibility.

The Abadiano centre has incorporated robotics to its automated processes. An intelligent raw materials warehouse that enables AL-KO to control the variety of components and the breadth of its range favouring flexibility of production and an efficient delivery service. This automation enables AL-KO in a few minutes to stock pile the parts of a shock absorber (between 30 and 40 depending on the model) for its manufacture.
