Innovation and quality are the bedrock of everything we do at Gentex and we want to make sure our partners, suppliers and everyone in between is continually equipped with the resources, information and tools that they need.

Quality

Gentex Quality Policy: To be our customers' reference point for quality and service. Quality is Gentex's highest priority.

At Gentex, we believe we have a smarter vision, smarter products, smarter processes, and a smarter view of the future. We’re concerned about providing customers with innovative, long-term solutions that add value, and not only short-term financial gain. While many automotive suppliers may come and go, our goal is to continually innovate in order to remain the auto-dimming mirror supplier of choice for customers around the world.

Superior Manufacturing

Because Gentex literally invented the electrochromic mirror industry, we also had to develop the supply base, manufacturing techniques, equipment, and testing methods. It was a long learning curve. But today, our experience, proprietary manufacturing techniques, and hard work has paid off, because no other glare-reduction mirror provider in the world can match our manufacturing capabilities - not in yields, quality, or volume.

 

Superior Quality

Gentex's superior product quality is the industry benchmark. Our proprietary auto-dimming technology has inherent, far-reaching advantages over competitive glare-reduction techniques. Our mirrors meet all worldwide automotive specifications for durability and visual acuity.
