WHY BDS Suspension?
The aftermarket suspension industry has seen many changes throughout the years. In the beginning, the industry based itself on three steps of distribution–the warehouse, the jobber and the customer. Competition kept the manufacturers hustling to release innovative, high quality products. Warehouses provided unique support services to better serve the jobber, and the jobber was set apart by customer service and expertise.
Then manufacturers began selling directly to the consumer, warehouses ran company owned retail outlets, and mail order companies were established. The traditional jobber struggled to survive, and growth at the independent store level ceased. The experts at retail customer service and product knowledge closed their doors, unable to compete on price alone. In an industry where vehicle suspension was becoming more complicated with each new model year, the expert was being forced out of business. Bad for the customer and bad for the industry.
That is when the owners of BDS Suspension saw an opportunity to provide a quality product and true customer service. We are owned and operated by people deep in experience in the light truck suspension industry and have been involved with every suspension manufacturer in the business.
BDS Suspension operates with one guiding premise–to provide true value to the customer by manufacturing the highest quality product at a competitive price, distributed and serviced by the premiere jobber/installer expert!
