It’s 2014: Welcome to the future. We’re helping you stay environmentally friendly this year.

Did you know that Sunset recycles waste oil in four of our locations? We have waste oil burning furnaces in these four stores: Aloha, Seaside, and Scappoose, Oregon along with Castle Rock, Washington.

Here at Sunset Auto Parts, we strive to be engaged with community events. We support youth sports, auto racing, community festivals and events, and community service efforts in every city we’re a part of. It’s a great way for us to stay connected, and a great way to support the strong communities we’re a part of here in the Pacific Northwest.

We’ve recently become supporters of a project spearheaded by Darlene Hess, Sunset’s long-time fearless leader of finances and payroll, and a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Scappoose, Oregon. The project brings together the member’s of Darlene’s church community with a sister church in Western Kenya. Please watch this short video to learn how Darlene is helping to connect our community with a group in Kenya to provide children with hens. It’s a local effort with positive international implications, check it out!

If you’d like to participate, donate, or learn more about this project contact Darlene by calling the Sunset Main Office at 503-543-5095. There is a also a Kenya Hen Project Facebook Page.

Field Research, Sunset NAPA Know How

Posted on: October 28th, 2013 by admin

Here at Sunset Auto Parts, we strive to deliver the finest products available in the automotive aftermarket. This effort goes far beyond our behind-the-counter parts knowledge. We perform some field research on our products to learn how they’re manufactured, and how that process affects our customers. This helps us ensure a high base level of quality and increases our company’s understanding of why a certain product might fail prematurely. That’s not something we like to see.

Recently, Sunset Founder and CEO Barry Hess toured a Wix Filter manufacturing facility just outside of Charlotte North Carolina. The facility is one of the premier manufacturers of air and oil filters on the planet and supplies NAPA Sunset with a huge variety of quality filters. He examined every process from filter element production to painting of the canisters, ducked under some giant robot arms, and talked shop with workers making the actual products.

Now that’s some NAPA Know How.
