The standards behind UFI products for the independent spare parts network are the same as those designed for Original Equipment filtration systems, a sector where UFI FILTERS enjoys many certifications (ISO 9001:2008, ISO/TS 16949:2009, ISO 14001:2004).
UFI filters are chosen as Original Equipment by the largest automotive manufacturing groups in the world, including BMW, Fiat Group, Ford Group, GM Group, Hyundai-KIA, Mercedes-Benz, PSA, Nissan-Renault, Volkswagen Group and many others in Europe, the United States, China, India, Japan and Korea.
For 35 years UFI FILTERS has been reaping the reward of success in the racing world as supplier of great Formula 1, rally and Motomondiale racing teams.
All of the filters sold in the UFI Aftermarket catalogue comply with the BER 2010 directive and therefore have quality standards matching the original, giving repair shops guaranteed vehicle repair and maintenance.
UFI FILTERS pursues the “total quality” philosophy in all stages of filter design and production as well as in laboratory tests. Patented product 60.H20.00, in particular, has a water separation capacity greater than 95% as shown through many tests performed in accordance with ISO TS 16332 procedure.
The quality principle is also pursued in distribution and logistics processes, with ad hoc personnel dedicated to inspecting goods as they come in and go out from UFI FILTERS storage warehouses, today managed by a dedicated outsourced company that handles all pick-up, packaging and delivery functions throughout the world, guaranteeing attentive, timely and flexible service on the basis of Customers’ requirements.
Ecology and environment have always been crucial themes for the UFI FILTERS Group. The Research Center, which achieved ISO 14001:1996 certification, constantly tests, often in direct collaboration with motor vehicle manufacturers, new eco-compatible materials. UFI FILTERS features, in its catalogue, a range of products made of 100% ecological and recyclable materials, some of which are designed so that installation and replacement procedures guarantee practically zero environmental impact.
