Three big names in the filters market joined in the war against sub-standard filters. Mahle says it will be distributing a comprehensive guide on filter quality and the importance of replacing like for like to its 450+ customers nationwide.

Meanwhile, CAT recently spoke to Sogefi about the state of filters quality in the market, and its plans to take an even bigger slice of the OE aftermarket in the UK.

Regular readers will also remember the cover story CAT recently ran involving Mann+Hummel, in which the company outlined the contingency measures it takes to protect itself and its quality.
