“AS” own brand


In 2004, products manufactured under the own brand name “AS” were introduced. In response to our customers’ demands and continuous development in the automotive industry, the company introduced starter and alternator refurbishing to its range of services.

In 2013, the company's main office was moved to a modern building in Gdańsk, where a warehouse with 5.000 m² of storage space is located as well. In 2016, a modern facility was built in Lubichowo near Starogard Gdański. It houses state-of-the-art production lines and a warehouse with nearly 5.000 m² of storage and administrative space. The building features innovative solutions and specialist machinery supplied by Canadian D&V Electronics (ST-16, ST-24, ST-116, ALT-98, ALT-198) and Dutch Motoplat. These testing machines were purchased in order to control and improve the quality of AS-PL’s products.

 

Quality control


Goods offered by the company undergo strict testing procedures and meet the highest requirements in relation to their assembly and technical parameters. Supplying reliable products tailored to current market expectations while using state-of-the-art technologies is the company's most important goal and mission.

As part of a drive towards producing top-quality products, a quality management system compliant with ISO 9001:2008 was implemented in 2015. The certificate guarantees that the company operates in accordance with quality standards and controls its influence on the environment. In 2018, AS-PL positively passed the control assessing the implementation of the ISO 9001:2015 certificate.

All alternators and starters offered by the company are tested using specialist machinery. The test results are included in the product packaging.

 

Online catalogue


In order to meet our Customers’ needs and expectations, we created an online catalogue that enables them to search for necessary parts quickly and easily. The catalogue is available at: as-catalog.com and on the company website.

To reduce our carbon footprint, we decided to not provide printed catalogues. A specialist mobile application, AS-PL Catalogue, is available in order to facilitate selection of the proper components. You can download it from Google Play™ and App Store®. The “AS” brand is also available in the TecDoc catalogue under the name AS-PL.
