The HUSCO Automotive story began in 1983 when Agustin Ramirez, Jr. was assigned to develop a strategic plan for HUSCO International, a subsidiary of AMCA. Ramirez recognized the tremendous growth potential that could be unlocked by separating HUSCO from AMCA and allowing the company to market its products to other major OEMs of off-highway equipment. This conclusion ultimately led Ramirez to lead a management buyout of HUSCO in 1985. Over the subsequent 25 years, HUSCO grew from a niche North American supplier into an industry leader with manufacturing facilities across North America, Europe, China, and India. HUSCO’s first automotive project was an advanced suspension system application for the Mercedes CL, SL and S-Class automobiles that commenced serial production in 1999.
Although HUSCO Automotive began with the Mercedes Active Body Control (ABC) suspension system, the business has since evolved to include a broad product portfolio of applications including cam phasing, cylinder deactivation, variable engine oil pump controls, convertible top controls, diesel emission controls and many more. Today, HUSCO Automotive is an industry leader renowned for its ability to design and manufacture technologically demanding products faster than the competition and to do so with near perfect quality. HUSCO Automotive is focused on providing products that enable next-generation automobiles to achieve improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions without sacrificing driving performance.
