Production and quality
The SANZ project
From the start, three main principles have guided operations and decisions in SANZ – PRODUCTION, QUALITY and DEVELOPMENT – and they remain the same today.
PRODUCTION because the company policy has always been to keep every phase of the transformation process in the Spanish region of Aragon. And from the 1940s repair shop to today’s production plant, SANZ has retained control over its products. From reception of raw materials to the final packaging of parts to be sent to customers, every operation takes place within our facilities.
While much of the Spanish industrial fabric has chosen to relocate to lower-cost countries or to outsource part of their manufacturing processes far away from Spain, SANZ has remained faithful to this initial principle. It has invested in technology, updating constantly in order to always be in the lead of technical means of production.
SANZ is a byword for QUALITY in the spare part sector and among automotive manufacturers, and the brand is recognised and respected the world over. Crankshafts are a key part of an engine, so technical development has to be very precise in order to withstand critical working conditions and to achieve optimal engine performance.
The first step in manufacturing is to check with the Metallographic Laboratory that both the composition and structure of the raw materials correspond with the forging needed so that the parts can be machined.
