Monroe is Australia's market leading replacement shock absorber and ride performance products brand. From perfecting the first self-oiled, single-barreled tyre pump in the USA back in 1918, the Monroe Auto Equipment Company developed what they called a shock eliminator to make cars more comfortable and easier to control in the 1920's. Within 25 years, the Monroe-Matic, the first double action shock absorber, was the best known shock absorber in the world, used by most American car makers through the 1950s. From that point on the Monroe shock absorber range has been synonymous with enhancing road safety and comfort through optimum control and tyre grip. Today, parent company Tenneco is one of the world's largest automotive component manufacturers and marketers, being Original Equipment and Aftermarket suppliers of choice both in Australia and across the world. Marinelli PR provides Tenneco with media communications and marketing support services along with customer specific communications services.
Burson Auto Parts is one of Australia's leading trade suppliers of quality automotive parts that include the world's best known and trusted brands.

From those humble begginings the company achieved the milestone of 100 stores across the country in 2013. In 2015 Burson Auto Parts became a public company with a new name of Bapcor, encompassing the company's extraordinary organic and acquisition based growth. The Bapcor group of companies now includes 160 company owned Burson Auto Parts stores across Australia, along with Automotive Brands - Autobarn, ABS, Opposite Lock and Midas. The fully Australian owned company's impressive business portfolio includes many more Australian and international companies within and outside of the automotive aftermarket industry.

To best summarise the quality of service that you can expect from Marinelli PR, here are two testimonials from two of Australia's largest automotive product manufacturers. (Many more available upon request).
"We lacked structure and co-ordination in our customer and public relations activities before we contracted Marinelli PR. We have been delighted with the high level of service, complete attention to detail, and wide contacts and direct target customer media exposure that this company has delivered to Hella Australia to date." Hella Australia
"Your company's expertise and commitment of near enough not being good enough is what made the production of our export engine brochure a pleasure in comparison to many previous projects that we have undertaken." Holden Engine Operations.
"We used Marinelli PR some eleven years ago and enjoyed press coverage that was unparalleled in our industry. Then after taking our PR in house and then through changes of management working with other PR companies, we came back to Marinelli PR in 2010 and it was like we had never left. We are back as a leader in our media coverage and our trade and end-user customer facing marketing projects have ramped up greatly, largely due to the efforts of Marinelli PR." Tenneco Australia
