All-Star Auto Glass is committed to quality including the use of OEM and OEE parts. All-Star defines OEM, or Original Equipment Manufacture, as parts retaining the actual logo of the manufacturer. In most cases this means they must be purchased through the Manufacturer’s dealership. “Mopar” and “Carlite” branded parts are the exception in that we have direct access to purchase these parts outside of the dealership.
OEE, or Original Equipment Equivalent, are parts manufactured by companies that are contracted to build OEM parts. They may or may not have made parts for your vehicle model or even that model year. These manufacturers include PGW (formerly PPG), Pilkington, ATI, AP Tech, Sigla, Sekurit, and others. Lastly, there are aftermarket parts. Aftermarket parts must still meet all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS), but may not have the testing standards as the original manufacturer.
Ultimately, All-Star trusts the brands we use and will stand behind them for as long as you own the vehicle. If you would like to know where the glass in your vehicle was manufactured, please look up the DOT# on your glass and visit http://www.glassbytes.com/dot/.
