Also, Keystone will expand its testing programs to cover additional reinforcement bars and other parts to further its commitment to provide aftermarket parts with collision performance equivalent to OEM parts.

The company says it is dedicated to the quality and safety of all the products it distributes.

Keystone’s announcement comes on the heels of the Auto Body Parts Association and Taiwan Auto Body Parts Association advising its members to halt the sale and distribution of untested structural aftermarket parts because of safety concerns.

The associations called into question both domestic and imported bumper reinforcements, steel bumpers, bumper brackets, radiator supports and absorbers after a demonstration at the Collision Industry Conference demonstrated a difference in performance between some aftermarket parts and OEM parts.
