As a result of a new, exclusive partnership deal with AutoLogistiks, Klarius Products Ltd is now able to offer almost all its customers next morning delivery of stock orders. These speeded-up shipments of exhausts, CATs, DPFs, mounting kits and other products will arrive at customers courtesy of AutoLogistiks’ dedicated UK fleet of Mercedes Crafter and Sprinter vans, allowing distributors to fulfil orders the same day.
The UK’s largest manufacturer of aftermarket emissions components, Klarius Products, has become one of the first businesses in the UK to achieve ISO 9001:2015 certification for its quality systems. The new standard replaces ISO 9001:2008 as of September 2018, with companies required to attain the new standard before this date to ensure compliancy.
As a business, maintaining a legislatively compliant fleet of commercial vehicles is the cornerstone of a successful logistics operation. Type-approval is the automotive EU directive that governs this compliance across the continent and partially, the UK. Type-approval is especially important for emissions components that are installed on a vehicle, guaranteeing product quality, performance and compliant levels of emissions. However, the introduction of on-the-spot checks for vehicle compliance in Europe over the next few years highlights a deficiency in UK type-approval legislation, which presents a risk to businesses whose vehicles are not fully type-approved.
Klarius has backed up the quality of its training after teaming up with the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI). The IMI visited the exhaust manufacturer to validate its latest emissions product training modules. The professional institute for those working in the motor industry offers accreditation for educational courses to help increase knowledge and quality within the industry. Klarius says this mission statement is closely aligned with Klarius’ approach to the market of providing education and supplying high quality type-approved components.
The new Klarius Emission Control Garage Accreditation scheme is designed to improve garage’s ability to deliver emission control product knowledge and services, while also increasing sales. The mission is to provide a mixture of professional training, signage and promotional tools all designed to increase customer confidence in solving Exhaust, CAT and DPF related issues.
