SMP Is Accepted Into MERA Program

Sept. 22, 2017

Standard Motor Products Inc. (SMP) has been accepted into the Manufactured Again Certification (MERA) program.  

Based on ISO 9001 and IATF 16949 quality standards, the program helps customers identify remanufactured products with like-new quality and warranty coverage while also promoting environmentally friendly standards. 

To receive certification, SMP was required to provide third-party evidence that its facilities conformed to MERA’s quality standards. SMP was one of 14 companies to receive the program’s inaugural certification.

Phil Hutchens, vice president engine management marketing for SMP, says the MERA certification “demonstrates to customers that we’re committed to setting the highest possible quality standard for our remanufactured diesel injectors.”

John Chalifoux, president and chief operating officer, MERA, says: “The ambassadors of the Manufactured Again Certification program are well-respected companies that produce quality, sustainable goods, and that quality is on par with new.”
