Keystone Provides Tracking for Parts Sold Under Quality Assurance Programs

Keystone Automotive says it’s continuing to offer product tracing through its KeyTrac program, which has been in place for more than eight years. Products installed on vehicles repaired with aftermarket parts that are part of Keystone’s quality assurance programs are traceable from the repaired vehicles back to the manufacturer’s specific production runs.

Keystone says that KeyTrac is the only aftermarket industry program that offers 100 percent traceability to all of Keystone’s quality assurance parts from the vehicle owner back to the original raw materials. At the time of installation, details including the part lot number, manufacturer and other pertinent tracking information are automatically recorded as part of a body shop’s invoice records. The lot number corresponds to the date and place of the manufacturer’s part production.

“We stand behind the quality of the parts we sell to collision repairers,” said Robert Wagman, senior vice president – wholesale parts division of LKQ Corp. “For the past eight years, we have used Key Trac, Keystone’s proprietary tracking software, to support our commitment to provide quality aftermarket parts.

“Our ability to identify vehicles repaired with Keystone’s aftermarket parts is similar to OEM product recall programs. We go a step further and provide a lifetime replacement warranty on our products that surpasses the warranties offered by all other suppliers of replacement parts, including those from the OEMs. We want installers and auto insurers to feel as confident as we do that they are using quality, safe aftermarket parts to repair their customers’ vehicles.”
