About the company
New premises and a warehouse in Gdańsk
AS-PL is a 100% Polish-owned private business dealing with starters and alternators. Established in 1992 as Auto-Starter, it now has a team of 150 qualified employees. AS-PL works with spare part suppliers operating in the aftermarket as well as with OEM suppliers from all around the world.
What we offer
We offer a wide variety of products including more than 12,000 items with almost 200,000 references to provide our Customers with a large selection of components, from OEM to aftermarket parts at competitive prices. Our product range covers parts and components for cars, trucks, agricultural equipment, watercraft, motorcycles and the industrial market. In 2004, we expanded our business by introducing the AS-PL private label to the product variety. In order to keep pace with customer demands and the rapid developments in the automotive industry, AS-PL has increased the scope of services provided to include alternator and starter remanufacturing. All the devices are subject to strict manufacturing and testing procedures, and they meet the highest standards in terms of assembly and performance. AS-PL’s main goal is to deliver reliable products which fulfill with the current market requirements and are manufactured using innovative technologies. Hence, it continues to develop its own manufacturing and assembly departments on an ongoing basis. In 2013, the company’s headquarters were relocated to a modern facility based in Gdansk comprising a warehouse with a floor area of 5,000 sq m, and office space. In 2016, a new production line facility and a second warehouse with a floor area of 5,000 sq m with office space were opened in Lubichowo by Starogard Gdanski. Innovative solutions and testing machines by the Canadian D&V Electronics Company (ST-16, ST-24, ALT-98, ALT-198) and by the Dutch Motoplat Company were put to use at the new plant to increase the quality level of services provided to Customers.
Following the activities undertaken with focus on delivering the highest quality products, the ISO 9001:2008 quality management was implemented in 2015. This Certificate confirms that the company operates in conformity with quality standards, and that it also controls its environmental impact. Irrespective of the certification, AS-PL runs a functional test for each single product and puts the Q.C. seal on it prior to marketing.
Online product catalogue
The online product catalogue has been developed to ensure a swift response to customer demands. The online access facilitates a quick and easy search for any required parts. Since 2015, the AS-PL trademark has also been available in the TecDoc catalogue. Moreover, a specialist AS application can also be accessed, enabling selection of appropriate components; it can be downloaded from Google Play store and App Store. For the sake of the environment, catalogues are no longer printed and have been replaced by MODECOM tablets with a pre-installed catalogue application featuring AS-PL products.
Having long-standing business relationships and sales operations in 50 countries around the globe, the company has been Europe’s leading supplier of spare parts and electronic components for vehicles.
