As part of the strict quality control processes all parts are 100% factory tested. Cores are inspected, pre-qualified and processed in a pre-wash. There are numerous wash and inspection stages before the core is re-qualified and moved to the assembly stage. After assembly, the unit must pass four quality tests in order to move forward – the function test, vacuum test, pressure test and the leak check tank. Only then can the product move forward to the final wash and pulley installation. Even then, our inspectors random sample-pull finished compressors from the paint line to run them on a durability test for twenty-one hours before the product can be shipped.
SMP Four Seasons Reynosa maintains a vigilant effort to recycle metals, fluids and all other reusable materials. Even coolant is reused after it has been filtered. Water used to clean the parts is sent to our onsite water treatment area facility where it is filtered, cleaned and then re-used as treated water. As a result of these and other initiatives Four Seasons holds the ISO 14001:2004 certification of environmental management. Standard Motor Products understands the need to minimize our impact on the environment and reduce waste for future generations.
