Au­dits prove Wix qual­ity

Motor Equipment News - - SERVICING -

As the task of the fil­ter is to pro­tect the en­gine, the qual­ity of the fil­ter is an is­sue of key im­por­tance. Wix says the best proof that Wix fil­ters pro­vide proper pro­tec­tion for your ve­hi­cle is the trust that al­most ev­ery car man­u­fac­turer puts in the com­pany.

Wix says each OE con­tract is pre­ceded not only with con­struc­tion and de­sign works, but also with a se­ries of tests car­ried out in­ter­nally at the Mann+Hum­mel Fil­tra­tion Tech­nol­ogy lab­o­ra­to­ries in Poland and in the Wix Fil­tra­tion lab­o­ra­to­ries in North Carolina in the USA as well as ex­ter­nally in in­de­pen­dent lab­o­ra­to­ries.

In or­der to achieve and main­tain top qual­ity on a con­tin­u­ous ba­sis, au­dits are car­ried out on a pe­ri­odic ba­sis by the car man­u­fac­tur­ers and/or cer­ti­fy­ing bod­ies. Car man­u­fac­tur­ers do not com­pro­mise on qual­ity is­sues. Only those sup­pli­ers which ap­ply state of the art tech­nolo­gies can be­come key play­ers in the OE mar­ket.

Wix says that be­cause it sup­plies OE fil­ters, its af­ter­mar­ket clients may be sure that by pur­chas­ing Wix branded prod­ucts they buy prod­ucts man­u­fac­tured us­ing the same tech­nol­ogy and ma­te­ri­als as the orig­i­nal prod­ucts.

It must also be men­tioned here that the ap­pli­ca­tion of Wix prod­ucts does not in­val­i­date the new ve­hi­cle guar­an­tee, as Wix parts are the orig­i­nal parts or the parts whose qual­ity meets the OE qual­ity in ac­cor­dance with EU Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle Block Ex­emp­tion Reg­u­la­tion (EU) 461/2010 (MVBER).

It is not easy for Wix to sign new OE con­tracts, which is why they feel so proud when car man­u­fac­tur­ers present them with best sup­plier awards (e.g. Ford Mo­tor Com­pany – Q1 qual­ity award).

In the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try, there is no bet­ter qual­ity guar­an­tee than the fact that com­po­nents man­u­fac­tured by a cer­tain man­u­fac­turer are sup­plied as orig­i­nal equip­ment. In the in­dus­tryspe­cific jar­gon, such sup­plies are called OE sup­plies, which is an ab­bre­vi­a­tion of Orig­i­nal Equip­ment.

Wix fil­ters were for the first time in­stalled in brand new cars leav­ing the pro­duc­tion line in the mid­dle of the 1950s in the USA. Their client then was Ford Mo­tor Com­pany, and the com­pany has been our client ever since.

To­day Wix co­op­er­ates with al­most ev­ery ma­jor car man­u­fac­turer.

Wix Eu­ro­pean clients spe­cially ap­pre­ci­ate the fact that we co­op­er­ate with al­most ev­ery car man­u­fac­turer (and that the co­op­er­a­tion is run from our Eu­ro­pean Wix branch).
