“Confidence in a quality brand and product is essential for the filter market,” says Univar Specialty Consumables product manager Mike Mongan, following the launch of original equipment brand Fil Filter in the independent automotive aftermarket.
Mongan said: “The filter market continues to argue over product quality with no real solution forthcoming. Transparency is key – Fil Filter makes over 95% of its own filters and is of a guaranteed quality offering peace of mind and confidence to the entire automotive supply chain of motor factors, garages and end users. We also have the technical expertise and fully accredited modern laboratories at Fil Filter to independently test filters and release our findings to customers.
“It’s a very exciting time for the new Fil Filter brand in the UK. It’s an OE, premium brand of guaranteed quality that is competitively priced and not over distributed – it meets a lot of criteria for an automotive aftermarket demanding more from their suppliers.”
Fil Filter products are supplied in bright, distinctive yellow packaging. Every box is specifically designed and made for the actual filter inside it and the part number is printed on the box.
A fast moving range of Fil Filter oil, air, fuel and cabin filters is available to parts distributors throughout the UK. Products can be ordered until 2pm for a next day delivery.
The total Fil Filter range includes more than 4500 part numbers of oil, air, fuel, cabin and hydraulic filters and covers car, commercial, agricultural and industrial applications. Full range and application data is available via the TecDoc cataloguing system.
