Wesfil has been a part of the Australian automotive aftermarket since 1984 when manufacturing began in Western Australia. In 1985 the business was taken over by Terry Cooper who relocated operations to the Northern Beaches of Sydney, where the Head Office is still based. In 1996 Wesfil became part of the automotive division of GUD Holdings Ltd, and formally became known as Wesfil Australia Pty Ltd.
Since then, Wesfil has continued to expand and thrive in a market that continues to demand quality, range and good old fashioned customer service.
Wesfil Australia Pty Ltd sources its air, oil and fuel filters from quality assured suppliers who manufacture to meet the performance requirements appropriate to the application. These suppliers have attained international certifications including:ISO 9001:2000 ISO/TS 16949:2002
ISO/TS 16949:2002 is a quality management system standard specific to the automotive industry, which includes all the requirements of the ISO 9000 quality management system standard verbatim. In addition, the standard combines the AVSQ (Italian), EAQF (French) and VDA 6.1 (German) automotive requirements. ISO/TS 16949, coupled with customer-specific requirements, defines the quality system requirements for use in the automotive supply chain. In April 2002, a new revised standard ISO/TS 16949:2002 was introduced. It replaced ISO/TS16949:1999 based on ISO 9001:1994, and is intended to be an alternative to QS-9000:1998 and other national automotive OEM supplier requirements. QS-9000:1998 was officially phased out as of December 15, 2006, and has been replaced by the ISO/TS 16949:2002 standard.
