WE HAVE RENEWED OUR CONTRACT AND VISION WITH THE KAWASAKI RACING TEAM

This next season will be the eighth season that J.Juan bets on Kawasaki Racing Team in Superbike. Let’s not fool ourselves! It is a safe bet. In seven years, the Brother Roda team has won six titles, one with Tom Sykes and five with Jonathan Rea.

This partnership, so far, is a formula for success. J.Juan is very proud that he is one of the participants in these victories.

This season the Roda brothers will, of course, count on Jonathan Rea. If he wins the sixth world title, he will become a stratospheric pilot.

Alex Lowes will accompany and compete against him. Alex has been very impressed during the winter tests of the Kawasaki that he will use in 2020.

AGAIN J.JUAN SUCCEDS IN THE IATF AUDIT

In November, the Sant Cugat plant has successfully passed the external audit of IATF 16949, the certificate attesting that our plant exceeds the standards set by the international standard for the production of components in the automotive industry.

With this milestone, we are going one step further on our path to excellence at the group level and we are consolidating the corporate management of the JJUAN group’s quality system.

One of J.Juan’s currencies is quality, which is transcendental when working with active motorcycle safety elements, such as brake systems. This commitment remains firm in all the factories of the group.

THE ENVIRONMENTAL AUDIT GIVES AN EXCELLENT SCORE TO J.JUAN

Like every year, J.Juan submitted its facilities to the ISO 14001: 2015 certification that weighs the action, performance and improvement of environmental issues.

Both plants, Gavà and Sant Cugat have renewed their environmental certificate. It should be noted that in Sant Cugat, the auditor has highlighted the degree of commitment to the environment. The compliance that our company and its workers have with ISO 14001 was qualified and certified as “Excellent”.

The auditor congratulated us effusively, recognizing that it had been a long time since she has had such satisfaction in an environmental analysis of the plant.

The challenge for 2020 is to maintain this excellence in Sant Cugat and achieve it for Gavà, always within the framework of responsibility for the environment that is implicit and so important in the culture of the J.Juan group

INDIA ALREADY USES THE J.JUAN HYDRAULIC TUBE

INDIA ALREADY USES THE J.JUAN HYDRAULIC TUBE

India is taking a great leap of quality in its bikes. It is the first world producer, with 22.5 million motorcycles manufactured in 2018. Its domestic market begins to demand a lot and, above all, more quality. The markets where it exports more than two and a half million motorcycles, also want a product with more excellence.

Among the various measures to be adopted by the Indian industry is the incorporation of disc brakes in some of its vehicles and the need for a hydraulics help to properly manage its braking. For this reason, the Indian manufacturers have turned their sights to hydraulic stube and J.Juan, the world leader in metallic mesh tube, has turned to the Barcelona factory to resolve the issue due to its high world prestige.

The technical office, located in Gavá, has evaluated and routed the different models that need a solution of precise and immediate response to the rideof the brake pump and has proposed a series of solutions to the Indian manufacturers that are already being implemented in a matter of a few days.

The irruption of the Indian market has been such in the production of metallic mesh hydraulic tube that is already estimated at 50% for the year, according to the figures of the first quarter of 2019. J.Juan has been producing metallic mesh hydraulic tubes since 1996, serving most Western and Premium range motorcycle brands, and is the world leader in this type of product, to the point of having won the last 4 Superbike World Championships with Kawasaki. Hence, Jonathan Rea highlights “the feeling of J.Juan tubes is accurate from the first round until the end of the race“. J.Juan will produce in 2019, four and a half million meters of tube of different diameters, from half an inch to two sixteenths of an inch.
