CRP Industries was founded in 1954 by Dr. Adam Schildge and since its inception, automotive parts and accessories have always been at the core of the business.
In 1978, CRP became the exclusive North American ContiTech replacement parts partner and launched a very popular line of European axle boot and gasket kits under the Meistersatz name. It was this benchmark year that Conti Rubber Products became CRP Industries Inc. to better reflect its expanded focus under the management of George Schildge.
In 1983, CRP introduced Pentosin power steering fluid to North America and for the next 20 years continued to build our Automotive Division into an industry leader in OE replacement parts and fluids.
In 1993 we traveled to Central America, where we opened office and warehouse space in Puebla, Mexico. Currently, CRP de Mexico services a large European car manufacturer.
In 2006, our efforts were recognized with an ISO 9001:2000 re-certification. That same year, we also proudly introduced the Rein Automotive line of genuine OE replacement parts as part of the CRP family of brands.
In 2011 we added AJUSA, a leading international manufacturer of automotive gaskets/sets, cylinder head bolt sets and hydraulic lifters, to our offering of OE quality brands.
Today, we provide NAFTA market distribution through warehouses in Cranbury, NJ, Fremont, California, Mississauga, Ontario, and Puebla, Mexico. Our product line has grown into a prestigious list of brand names you know and trust from ContiTech to Rein, Pentosin, AJUSA, and Meistersatz.
Today, with Dan Schildge as President, CRP Automotive is moving ahead faster than ever with quality, service, and trust leading the way.
Our Brand Values
The CRP family of brands is as recognized and respected as the company itself. And that is no coincidence. We pay great attention to the products we carry, the people we work with, and the way in which we conduct business. In fact, the greatest products we offer our customers are quality, trust, and service. They don't have a sku and they can't be pulled off some warehouse shelf.
From ContiTech to Rein, Pentosin, and Meistersatz a genuine dedication to providing only the highest quality products in the most professional way possible is what makes CRP - CRP.
And with a 50-year reputation to uphold and protect you can be rest assured that our commitment to our customers and our suppliers is second to none.
Now that's something to be proud of.
CRP Industries is certified to ISO 9001:2008. This certification was awarded by TUV Rheinland of North America, Inc. The 2008 version of standardization introduced major changes in the certification requirements by making process management the primary prerequisite. So instead of simply inspecting the quality of the final product, monitoring and optimizing a company's tasks and activities became the key element in achieving certification.
The 2008 version of certification also demanded that upper-level executives take charge of process management, integrating quality into the business systems themselves - not via junior administrators. Additionally, tracking customer satisfaction and implementing a long- term plan for improving processes and procedures became mandatory.
With this certification, our clients can count on the fact that we have met all of these requirements and more.
