URO Premium - Unique, Intelligent, Repair Solutions
September 30, 2014 - Popular parts are popular for a reason, they fail. Whether the vehicle manufacturer was under cost constraints, only cared that the product lasted the duration of the vehicle warranty, or simply missed a design flaw, nobody goes back to fix these quality issues for the second and third vehicle owners. It is the dawn of a new era, URO Premium!

URO Premium products are re-engineered to solve the problem of these failure prone parts. URO Premium products feature a more robust design and/or higher-grade materials to vastly improve the reliability and durability of the product. Each URO Premium product bears the "URO Premium" seal (top left) and "PRM" suffix to their part number to easily distinguish them from their OEM counterparts.

Most importantly, we are so confident in our engineering that each URO Premium product will come with a warranty no auto part has come with before, a Lifetime Warranty (see certificate). You no longer have to make a choice between brands, the choice is clear.

A.P.A. Industries; Trusted OE Supplier
It is well-known that European auto makers have very rigorous quality standards. For them to purchase a product from any company, the part must be submitted with documentation proving that it conforms to the standards set forth when the vehicle was originally engineered. With A.P.A. Industries now selling products directly to several major European auto makers, it is a testament to the quality of the products we manufacture.

With our many OE projects for Mercedes, dealers will now be able to acquire a part that has been back ordered for quite some time. These items showcase our ability to produce OE quality products for one of the premier car manufacturers in the world.

A.P.A. Industries, Inc. also sells its products directly to Jaguar Classic in the UK. We are continuing to work with them to help increase the availability of spares for the classic models and keep these unique vehicles on the road.
