NSF International Certifies First Automotive Recycler – PAM’s Auto

PAM’s Auto is the first to earn both NSF automotive parts distributor and recycling certifications

ANN ARBOR, Mich. and ST. CLOUD, Minn. – NSF International, a global organization with more than 70 years of independent product testing, auditing and certification expertise, including products in the automotive supply chain, has issued its first automotive recycler certification to PAM’s Auto. An auto parts distributor located in St. Cloud, Minn., PAM’s Auto met all requirements for NSF International automotive recycler certification including traceability, labeling and grading.

NSF International’s automotive recycler certification provides independent third-party confirmation that automotive recyclers meet federal, state and local recycler requirements. PAM’s Auto also met the additional certification requirements for dismantling, stocking, sales and delivery, and customer service.

“The NSF International certification requirements and guidelines align with PAM’s Auto best business practices and business philosophy,” said Pat Huesers, PAM’s Auto Co-Owner. “We feel the future of our business success is supported by NSF International certifications.”

In addition to earning NSF International recycler certification, PAM’s Auto also previously earned NSF International automotive parts distributor certification, meeting requirements in quality and customer service, business liability insurance, traceability, inventory tracking and recall procedures.

“Consumers can purchase PAM’s Auto recycled parts with the assurance that the parts are labeled and graded accurately,” said Bob Frayer, Global Managing Director of NSF International’s Automotive Certification Programs. “The PAM’s Auto commitment to quality and traceability systems was also demonstrated by earning NSF International’s parts distributor certification.”

For successfully meeting all NSF International certification requirements, PAM’s Auto is authorized to use the NSF Certified Automotive Distributor and Recycler marks on its website and in promotional materials and to appear in NSF International’s online certification listings. PAM’s Auto will undergo annual quality system audits to maintain both certifications.
