About Artago Security Solutions
Artago Security Solutions are the European manufacturer of Motorcycle Locks and chains. Artago U Locks, Disc Locks and Chains are tested by all the major testing facilities including Sold Secure.
In 1976 Artagoitia Alberto Fernandez, a Motorcycle mechanic and enthusiast began making motorcycle parts and soon began making functional security products from his small workshop some 30km from Valencia. The Artago Anti-theft Brand was created and from these humble beginnings began to produce Security solutions for the scooter market and particularly the classic Vespa and in 1989 the company was renamed ACCESSORIES ARTAGO, SL. By the mid 1990's Artago had gained support from Aimme (Metal-Mechanical Technology Institute of Valencia) to expand, evolve and develop into new markets, especially internationally. In April 2000 the factory and company are renamed Artago Secure SL and is restructured to research, develop and manufacture high level security devices to meet the demands of motorcyclists.
December 2000, Artago locks receive the approval of the SRA (French Association of insurance companies).
2002, Artago pass the tests of the UTAC French laboratories (Union Technique de l'Automobile du Motocycle et du Cycle) andthe CNPP (Center National de Prévention et de Protection), both tests supervised by AFNOR (French department of certification).
2003, the AFNOR made their first visit and audit the factory, in order to certify that the ARTAGO manufacturing system offers the highest quality guarantees required to maintain the high level of NF-FFMC approved locks, the most demanding quality seal.
2005 construction of the new and most advanced lock factory worldwide, located in a modern industrial park in Carlet, well connected with Valencia MotoGP circuitand equipped with a powerful testing laboratory homologated by AFNOR, capable of carrying the most destructive tests inorder to verify that indeed each of the new ARTAGO locks are the ultimate in security.
Annually all locks are trimming approved by independent laboratories on samples taken from the market and each year the factory receives a detailed audit of the manufacturing processes, the audit of 2009 is the seventh consecutive passed successfully.
The maximum safety level achieved is confirmed in each test conducted by independent laboratories of the most demanding approvals as the NF-FFMC and SRA in France, the ART **** in Holland, the Sold Secure GOLD in England…. and the best results of the comparative tests made by motorcycle magazines which recognizes our passion for quality with sentences like "Bravo pour la qualité à des ARTAGO aciers" published in Sep. 09 by the French magazine more specialized in locks tests.
The challenge for the future is to keep alive the original spirit, as of 1976, with perseverance and hope to create security solutions that better fit the real needs of the motorcyclist, and continue innovating in products such as the ARTAGO 32, the most advanced lock+alarm solution at the moment.
