Our facility is IATF 16949 certified and has received numerous awards and recognition for its quality delivery systems.
In this 147,000 square foot facility, SMP produces and manufactures a wide variety of automotive electronics, emission controls, electromechanical components, camshaft and crankshaft sensors, distributor caps and rotors, oil pressure senders and many other ignition components.
We make a concerted effort to recycle metals, plastics and any other reusable materials. Here at SMP Engine Management de Mexico all injection molding plastic by-products are ground up and fed proportionately back into the molding process. Copper, brass and other recyclable materials, such as corrugated materials, are separated and collected for recycling.
Our state-of-the-art facility allows for complete control of the manufacturing process from core inspection through packaged product.
A part of the Temperature Control Division of SMP, our 100,000 square foot Reynosa, Mexico facility manufactures and distributes a complete line of replacement climate control products specializing in the remanufacturing of import and domestic automotive air compressors. Lines manufactured in the Reynosa facility including Four Seasons, Hayden, ACI, Maxair, and CompressorWorks. The Reynosa facility works in conjunction with our Grapevine, TX location and is ISO 9001 certified.
Undergoing strict quality control processes, all parts are factory tested. Cores are inspected, pre-qualified and processed in a pre-wash. There are numerous wash and inspection stages before the core is re-qualified and moved to the assembly stage. After assembly, the unit must pass four quality tests in order to move forward – the function test, vacuum test, pressure test and the leak check tank. Only then can the product move forward to the final wash and pulley installation. Inspectors randomly sample and pull finished compressors from the paint line to run them on a durability test for at least twenty-one hours before the product can be shipped.
SMP Temperature Control Division, Reynosa makes a concerted effort to recycle metals, fluids and all other reusable materials. Even coolant is reused after it has been filtered, and water is treated. As a result of these and other initiatives Four Seasons holds the ISO 14001 certification of environmental management.
The SMP wire and cable facility in Reynosa, Mexico specializes in manufacturing and assembling ignition wires and custom packing for varied and extensive distribution.
In our 175,000 square ft., IATF 16949 certified, high-volume facility the entire process from raw material through custom packaging is under strict quality control. At the wire set assembly stage, ignition wires are cut to length from reels of SMP’s own manufactured cable. Our cable is manufactured with automated wire manufacturing equipment that utilizes a vertically integrated production process that includes custom silicone compounding, multi-core fabrication, inner jacketing, braiding and continuous vulcanization outer jacketing. The assembly process includes all phases of production from cutting and stripping to terminating, booting and thorough testing.
We terminate and boot wires to desired specifications and package accordingly. Extensive testing includes: SAE and ISO 3808 performance tests, customer specific tests, product performance verification, product benchmarking, and a complete battery of silicone compound testing.
In our Reynosa plant and others like it across the globe, a strong effort is made to recycle fluids, metals and all other reusable materials. Nearly 95% of all bi-product is recycled and reclaimed for use in additional industrial applications.
