Spectra Premium has joined the Certified Automotive Parts Association program as a full participant to certify their parts to the CAPA 601 Radiator Standard.
The CAPA 601 Radiator Standard includes requirements for performance testing, material composition, dimensions, appearance, function, construction and retaining features, and fit. A key element in the CAPA 601 testing procedure is confirming that the radiator will perform the same as the car company brand radiator over time.
The Boucherville, Que., supplier of automotive, truck and heavy duty parts produces and distributes over 1,500 different radiators worldwide.
“Supporting quality initiatives, such as the CAPA 601 Certification has always been a main driver of our ongoing commitment to providing the aftermarket with the highest level of quality parts,” said Jason Best, senior vice president, aftermarket, at Spectra Premium. “We are extremely honored to be awarded this first in the market certification for the radiator category and thus better equipping our customers to support the needs of the collision market through a rigorous quality certification process.”
“With today’s new technologies, proper cooling has never been more important to insuring a long lasting and efficiently running engine. Spectra Premium is clearly a leader, demonstrating to the market that it not only understands the importance of proper cooling technology, but the increasing standards of its customers,” said Jack Gillis, CAPA’s Executive Director. “We congratulate them on this achievement and look forward to testing and certifying their high-quality parts.”
