HC-CARGO - Quality is Key
How do we guarantee high-quality products? We conduct thorough tests in our QA department. Our engineers test the parts for interaction, perfect fit and easy installation before they are approved and released for sale. Our test procedures ensure that we keep our promises.
HC-CARGO ordering and management processes are certified to ISO9001.
OE Quality at HC-CARGO
The 5 star icon will help you to make the right product choice. If you see the icon, the part is OE quality, i.e. the best quality on the market. If no icon appears, the part is aftermarket quality, i.e. the quality you are familiar with from HC-CARGO – tested at our own test facilities before launch.
The HC-CARGO 5-star programme contains products known in the automotive aftermarket as “original spare parts”. The suppliers of these parts are OE manufacturers. You will find the entire HC-CARGO product portfolio available on our online shop.
Because Quality is Key to us

Becoming a HC-CARGO supplier is not easy. Suppliers have to meet a long list of requirements. They need to have qualified processes and above all, they have to win over our experienced quality managers and engineers, who frequently visit suppliers to test them intensively. This is a continuous process which extends over the entire period of cooperation.
We also expect our suppliers to have certified management processes. They are therefore ISO9001 or IATF16969-certified.
Becoming greener and cleaner
Our competent and dedicated engineering team ensures reliable and particular sustainable processes. We are awarded with ISO 9001:2000 certification. In addition, we have achieved ISO14001 certification which confirms our environmental policy.
In addition, we continuously are optimizing our energy consumption in our premesis’. Dedicated efforts in our Facility Management department keeps us on track and we always strive to achieve the best possible solutions.
Why repair units?
Often it is simply cheaper and a faster solution for the customer. Changing the broken or worn-out part(s) with HC-CARGO parts will still leave the customer with a top-quality unit. Especially if it is a rare OE unit, it will be more economical to repair.
In addition, when you consider the environmental aspect repairs are better. You save raw materials when you prolong the lifetime of the unit. Further production costs (e.g. for energy, logistics etc.) are reduced and thereby the environmental impact is lower. Due to our dedicated work for remanufacturing our plants have achieved the IATF16949 certificate.
