A.L.P. Marks the Two-Year Anniversary of Reflek® Assets Acquisition

Observes improved efficiencies, products, and processes.

It has been two years since Reflek® brand custom performance reflectors were added to the A.L.P. product offering. In that short time, backed by the global resources of A.L.P., the Reflek brand has been repositioned as a preeminent supplier of quality reflectors to lighting OEMs and the aftermarket.

A.L.P. has dramatically improved efficiency by consolidating Reflek’s manufacturing operations to fewer locations, all strategically located near major lighting customers in the U.S. and Mexico. The product is delivered quickly via A.L.P.’s global logistics network.

A.L.P has leveraged its outstanding Quality Management System (QMS) and expertise to enhance product quality.  Programs such as improved standardization, increased tooling reliability, and rigorous inspection has achieved a 21 percent reduction in quality concerns.

Capitalizing on A.L.P.’s manufacturing efficiencies and global sourcing infrastructure has allowed Reflek to maintain competitive pricing while producing a superior product.

When speed to market counts, having the backing of a huge product and tooling design team, along with fast-track tooling machinery like a 5-axis laser, helps Reflek brand take ideas from concept to production in record time.

To learn more about how the bigger, better, Reflek can support your custom performance reflector requirements, please contact 877-257-5481
