CAPA Welcomes HELLA to its Tier 1 Replacement Parts Verification Program


...there are no differences when a supplier changes production from manufacturing the car company parts to the Tier 1 branded version of the part.


“We are pleased to be the first manufacturer to receive CAPA approval in the Tier 1 Replacement Parts Verification Program. We believe that having a CAPA class for original equipment (OE) products that clarifies what the product is for the market is a large step forward. This allows stakeholders in collision repair to fully understand and trust what is being sold and installed. For an OE supplier that is also heavily involved in the aftermarket, this clarity that it is OE quality in the box is paramount,” said Fred Snow, President of HELLA Automotive Sales, Inc., a subsidiary of Faurecia that is responsible aftermarket business for USA and Canada.


Together they operate under the overarching umbrella brand FORVIA. With more than 150,000 employees at over 300 locations, FORVIA is the seventh-largest automotive supplier worldwide.


With HELLA’s successful completion of CAPA’s approval process, it may begin submitting parts for verification. Verified parts will be announced via CAPA’s weekly updates, and they can be identified by the CAPA Tier 1 Verified label. To sign up for CAPA’s weekly updates, or for more information, go to www.CAPAcertified.org.
