With Quality Built the name says it all because quality is built into every starter. Quality Built starters are products of the finest components, extensively tested both during and after the manufacturing process, assembled in the most technologically advanced facilities. The end products are the finest new and remanufactured starters available anywhere. Every Quality Built starter is manufactured according to strict QS-9000 quality guidelines, the highest quality standard achievable for an automotive parts supplier and a requirement for supplying parts to manufacturers like Ford, GM and Chrysler.
Professional installers are the most demanding starter customers because a defective or unreliable starter costs them money and time when the vehicle comes back, and damages their hard-earned reputation. Quality Built starters were created with this most demanding of customers in mind, but now this same level of quality is offered to you, the do-it-yourself (DIY) customer.
A Quality Built starter begins with only select components, initially tested to make sure they meet all specifications for functionality. All critical sub-assemblies are tested on specialized equipment prior to final assembly. These components are assembled using a unique lean cell manufacturing approach that combines the efficiency of lean manufacturing with quality levels usually only attainable by hands-on craftsman. Completed units are individually tested on proprietary load-based testers across a full range of operating requirements.
A typical rebuilt starter is taken apart and put back together, often with some of the same parts that caused it to fail in the first place. However, every component that is prone to normal wear in a QB Premium remanufactured starter is replaced with a new component, regardless of the condition of the component at the time of remanufacture. QB Supreme brand new starters combine 100% new components and housings with the expertise gained performing countless durability tests and root cause analyses on the remanufactured line. The result is a brand new starter with unequaled performance and reliability.
