John Guest’s journey in automotive began in the 80s when Ford asked us to design a new fuel line push-fit connector.
Compared to traditional metal connectors, our innovative push-fit technology made assembly much faster and simpler without the need for tools. Made from lightweight plastic, it also helped reduce the weight of vehicles leading to improved fuel consumption and acceleration rates.
Today, John Guest automotive push-fit connectors have become an integral component in many automotive OEM designs from fuel lines to brake systems, power steering, turbochargers and more.
