Who we are

How it all started

JOSAM is located in Örebro, Sweden, and is a trademark of Snap-on Incorporated. Ever since we invented our first frame straightening system in 1972 and our first wheel alignment system in 1974, we have been dedicated to improving our products to higher levels of speed, accuracy and user-friendliness. Today you will find our products on six continents.

Benefits for our customers

Our wheel alignment systems ensure correct axle and wheel alignment, which reduces both fuel consumption and tyre wear. It also improves driving safety and comfort. JOSAM’s wheel alignment systems are used all over the world by OEM workshops, independent workshops, fleet owners and tyre workshops. We strive to serve workshops with products that can improve their profitability and make their customers even more satisfied.
The JOSAM straightening equipment makes it possible to effectively and qualitatively repair damage to vehicle frames and chassis instead of replacing these components. This means that there is a significant economic advantage for all concerned.

Training for users of JOSAM products is another core activity. Through this training, clients get access to the latest methods for wheel alignment and straightening, as well as effective utilization of the equipment. In addition, to make training available to technicians, we offer training programs for service personnel and insurance claims adjusters.

We strive to be the global leader in workshop solutions for heavy vehicle wheel alignment, repair and maintenance ― through our conceptual, technical and information knowledge.

Environment

By enabling trucks and buses to save fuel and tyres, we contribute to a better environment. Whenever our customers use JOSAM’s straightening equipment to extend the lifecycle of a heavy vehicle, we contribute to greater durability for the entire industry.

We promote environmental consciousness at all levels of our administrative and technical departments and work systematically to make continual improvements in this area. The administration of environmental impact systems are certified according to ISO 14001.

Developing and testing

Through our extensive experience and well-developed client contacts, we are constantly improving our products. New material and technology are being introduced on a continuous basis so as to be able to offer clients the most effective equipment and techniques possible. The new product concepts and methods are then tested in our own measurement and straightening workshops.

Quality

We promote quality at all levels of our administrative and technical departments and work systematically to make continual improvements in this area. The administration of quality control impact systems are certified according to ISO 9001.

Represented in every part of the world

JOSAM is represented in most countries on all continents through our affiliated companies and representatives. In Sweden, China, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates there are training centers that offer training to clients and others within the branch.
