Benefit From the Airtex-ASC Commitment to Quality
Today’s precision fuel and water pumps require expert manufacturing and quality components designed to deliver long-term, reliable performance. For more than 80 years, Airtex-ASC has been making quality our priority.
How We Revolutionize Quality in Fuel Delivery Systems
An inferior assembly can lower fuel efficiency, or worse, cause a vehicle to break down. That’s why Airtex-ASC develops the latest technological advancements in fuel delivery systems by not only adhering to OE design philosophy but also improving upon design and performance of aftermarket fuel pump replacements.
Statistical process control, continuous improvement and state-of-the-art quality programs drive our world-class manufacturing. We control and improve our processes to prevent defects, resulting in the lowest returns of any aftermarket fuel pump program.
Each Airtex-ASC fuel pump assembly undergoes these rigorous tests throughout the design and manufacturing process, including:
- Life testing
- Vibration and thermal testing
- Sender testing
- On-vehicle testing
- Leak testing
- Electrical testing
Airtex-ASC manufacturing plants, design engineering, research, development and test facilities meet International Standards for Quality Management System and Environmental Management System. Airtex-ASC is ISO certified in the design and manufacture of automotive fuel delivery systems.
