Covid-19 Update
Our approach to COVID-19

What we’re doing

DBElectrical has adapted to the current COVID-19 outbreak to keep our community, customers and employees safe. These measures have allowed us to continue serving our customers with little impact to order delivery.

Here are the actions we’ve taken:

  • Any employee who can work from home is now doing so. Working from home has allowed us to dramatically reduce the number of people who are present in our offices and warehouse facilities.

  • We’ve redesigned our workstations in our shipping and distribution centers, adding space between packing areas, implementing additional social distancing guidelines and reducing the amount of contact with packages and merchandise.

  • Package handlers have been issued protective gear such as gloves and masks when processing orders. We’ve also provided hand sanitizers for use by employees.

  • Temperatures are checked for all employees entering our offices and warehouses. Persons exhibiting a temperature outside of a normal range are not admitted to our facilities. We’re following CDC guidelines for delaying a return to work when someone exhibits signs of illness.

  • We’ve restricted outside visitors from entering our offices and facilities. At this time, no outside guests are allowed to enter our buildings.

  • We encourage our employees to take care of themselves and their families during this outbreak. Our health-first approach to employee relations strengthens our sense of teamwork.

The good news is that we’re operating at nearly 100% capacity in shipping orders. We are aware that the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted some of the delivery services we use, so there are occasional delays for that reason. At this time, the impact of these delays appears minimal.

We’re working hard to provide you with the replacement parts you need. We’ll get through this time together and look forward to promising times ahead.

Take care,
The DBElectrical team

What is reverse engineering?

DB Electrical uses a process often referred to as “reverse engineering” in the design of its replacement parts for vehicles of all types. It’s a term you’ll sometimes hear when talking about aftermarket parts. Reverse engineering, in effect, is a fancy name for a simple concept. Reverse engineering involves taking a product made by an original equipment manufacturer apart to see how it was made and how it works. That’s exactly what DB Electrical does for products like starters, alternators, solenoids and voltage regulators.

Parts that fit perfectly
Reverse engineering allows for creating aftermarket products that fit just like the original part that came in a vehicle. As parts are disassembled, precise measurements are taken and replicated in the design of the new aftermarket replacement part. This is important so that the part installs easily and works flawlessly.

Replacement parts that excel
DB Electrical practices reverse engineering that goes even a step further. While are being disassembled, the design and the materials used are analyzed. If the design and materials can be improved for better performance or a longer service life, those enhancements will be made. Aftermarket products from DB Electrical will match OEM specifications and sometimes exceed them.

Benefits of aftermarket products
Thanks to reverse engineering, aftermarket products help consumers in several ways. First of all, aftermarket products are often priced less than their OEM counterparts. Price-conscious consumers know that aftermarket products offer a good value. Secondly, owners of older vehicles often rely on aftermarket parts when original parts for models long out of production become scarce. Let say, for instance, that you own an AMC Gremlin from the 1970s or an Oliver tractor from the 1960s, you can buy a new starter from DB Electrical that will keep your vehicle going. Finally, aftermarket products extend the distribution reach of goods. If you do not have a dealer in town for your model of vehicle, you may find it easier to locate an aftermarket replacement part locally.

Consumers greatly benefit
Reverse engineering has significantly expanded consumer choice in the vehicle repair market. Instead of relying exclusively on original equipment manufacturers, consumers can now find alternative sources with competitive prices and more accessible availability. Consumers, without a doubt, have benefitted from the use of reverse engineering.
