Quality-Built Alternators, Starters & Bearings
Quality Built is a line of new and remanufactured starters and alternators created by Motorcar Parts of America (MPA) that offer premium performance and reliability. Each one is reengineered for performance, manufactured to exacting standards, and stringently tested to ensure reliable performance. MPA claims that when you install a Quality Built unit, you’re installing more than just a starter or alternator; you’re installing peace of mind.
MPA is the largest remanufacturer of import starters and alternators for North America and the world’s third largest remanufacturer overall. The company is a top supplier to automotive retail chain stores and also supplies major auto manufacturers with aftermarket starters and alternators. MPA’s revolutionary process combines sustainable remanufacturing with advanced re-engineering, which reduces material and energy consumption up to 91% compared to traditional manufacturing. MPA reclaims and reconditions all non-wearing parts, saving the energy and material that would be needed to create new ones.
The Quality Built line of alternators and starters was created by MPA specifically to meet the high demands of professional installers. Professional installers need the highest quality parts for their customers’ vehicles because defective or unreliable parts cost them time and money when the vehicle comes back, and damages their reputation. At their state-of-the-art Technology Center, MPA performs substantial testing on every starter and alternator before and after remanufacture to ensure the highest quality and dependability available.
At the Technology Center, extensive Durability Testing and Root Cause Analyses helps MPA engineers identify the primary reasons for failure. To reduce the occurrence of similar failures, modifications are implemented and each unit is repeatedly retested. As a result, Quality Built starters and alternators are the most dependable automotive aftermarket parts you can buy, meeting, and often exceeding, original equipment (OE) specifications. And even though Quality Built starters and alternators were created for professional installers, we offer them to the general public so everyone can benefit from their quality.
Quality Built starters and alternators are crafted using lean manufacturing techniques. This approach organizes groups of highly skilled craftsmen, supplies, tools and equipment into small workgroups to build each starter or alternator model. This results in a higher quality product, lower costs and reduced waste compared with old-fashioned assembly line methods. A unit produced this way has improved durability and reliability compared with one produced using traditional manufacturing methods. Each and every component, sub-assembly and complete Quality Built unit is repeatedly inspected and tested during the manufacturing process. Initial sample approvals test all components to validate specifications and functionality, then all critical sub-assemblies are tested, and finally, completed units are individually tested on proprietary testers across a full range of operating requirements.

The product I receive was excellent and the short time it took to deliver the product was exceptional. What they said, they would deliver, they did and at a price far less than the dealership was going to charge. Keep up the great work.

I needed a part quickly. High quality and within my budget. This part delivered all of that. It came packaged very well and was ready for installation. I would recommend this part to anyone who needs it. You won't be disappointed.

This remanufactured alternator is so great. I don't see any difference with the new one cause all of the parts are new and the performance is the same. So thank you, CARiD. I saved a lot of money.
