After about a year and a half of intense US sanctions against our country, as well as direct sanctions on the automotive industry, which have had a negative impact on the supply chain of automakers, there are manufacturers that haven't given up efforts to supply parts to prevent the accumulation of incomplete cars in auto makers' parking lot. One of these part manufacturing companies is Crouse, the largest component manufacturer in the country that strives to develop the part industry, employment and economic self-sufficiency; and is helpful in maintaining local production of auto industry.

This part manufacturing company has an important role in supplying auto parts for Iran Khodro, SAIPA, Bahman Group and others. In principle, Crouse manufactures over 1000 kinds of parts and components with different technical numbers at its three production sites, and it can be said that there are almost no locally assembled cars that does not use at least one set of components. Crouse has a direct role in a wide range of assembly cars and about 41 local car models and is a major supplier of the country's automotive industry needs. Parts of this company are used in cars such as Peugeot 405, 206, Rana, Tiba, Brilliance, Capra, Dongfeng and others. Crouse has reduced imports by deepening the localization of parts and achieving self-sufficiency in the manufacture of many single and advanced automotive components, and mass-produced them at the same quality and price. Crouse, with an effective presence in the Resistance Economy is trying to achieve self-sufficiency in the industry in a situation where the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Trade defined some objectives and put them in the agenda to develop local design and manufacture, particularly the part industry, with the aim of reducing import and need to foreign currencies, by participating in specialized meetings, organized by the Ministry. For example, Iskra, one of Crouse Affiliate Company has been able to localize more than 50% of the car's ignition and alternator components, using world-class technology and sophisticated equipment as well as with the help of youth and elite engineers, saving more than $3 million annually. At present, these products from Iskra are recognized in the local market as the best and highest quality.

In addition, Iskra can be named as the first exporter of ignition and alternator to the overseas, as a contract was recently signed between Iskra and LLC Pramo-Electro from Russia, whereby various types of ignition, alternator and their related parts have been exported to Russia, indicating that the quality of the parts produced is high enough to be exported.

Crouse part manufacturing in its three decades of operation with an investment of 330 trillion IRR has helped the automotive industry greatly, as it has reduced the need to foreign currencies and saved tens of millions of dollars annually. Other accomplishments of the Crouse include employment for women, which has helped to prevent social harm and has kept pace with world standards.
