Quality and Transparency at HMB
We do our very best to deliver high quality products only.
Original parts are not always at hand, sometimes we have to settle with aftermarkert spare parts. Unfortunately, not all the parts are of good quality. Sometimes, competitors even use the original part number for a low quality replacement, without labelling the product accordingly.
For saftey relevant parts, we only stock high quality parts. For less critical parts, cheaper production parts can save money.
Our main idea is to show quality differences between "identical" products.
For us, trancparency means: A clear part number, containing the country of origin!
Normally, the part number contains 8 digits.
- Without any additions, an original part.
- If there is the addition "ZX", the "Z" shows that it is an aftermarket part, the "X" shows the producing country.
|ZO||= Eastern Europe|
|12001200||Gasket as original part|
|12001200-ZE||Gasket made in EU|
|12001200-ZC||Gasket made in China|
|12001200-ZI||Gasket made in Italy|
If there is a better alternative, this is also shown.
