Since its establishment in 1974 in Istanbul, OPAS has become one of the few companies that Turkish automotive spare parts supplier industry is proud of due to its steadily continued method of development.
While only manufacturing ignition systems for automotives in its early years, the company later achieved the technology and the manpower to produce every component of ignition systems by
improving its wide product range. Distributors and magneto point sets, distributor caps, different types of capacitors, ignition coil sets and distributor rotors, heavy-duty induction coils, new age ignition coils, sensors, lambda sensors and flow meters can be considered among the company’s leading products.
OPAS, which recieved a license (know how) from the German firm DODUCO KG. DR. E. Durrwachter, became the most important producer of ignition systems in World trade. As a result of a relationship based on mutual trust since 1996, the entire production base in Germany which has been bought by OPAS via contract, was brought to Turkey. Later, with the Doduco firm being bought by BERU A.G., one of Germany’s important firms, OPAS has become a long time supplier of BorgWarner BERU Systems GmbH before continuing as the new supplier of Federal Mogul Aftermarket GmbH starting with 2013. After the integration of BERU A.G. and BorgWarner, OPAS has been the supplier in accordance to the same agreement done beforehand. Thanks to its management policy and its ideals about not compromising on quality, OPAS was awarded with the certificate of quality: TS EN ISO 9001:2008 by both the IQNet and the Turkish Standards Institution. The company still proceeds with its planned study about Total Quality Management.
