As a manufacturer, you know that machinery always breaks down when you least expect it, and often, when you can least afford it. Sourcing the parts you need, in the time that you need them, can add to the frustration of having slowed or paused production. While you have always relied on OEM parts, now is a great time to build a relationship with a custom parts supplier.
Benefitting Your Business by Building Relationships
Do you often find it is difficult to source the OEM parts that you need? Or, do you find that the parts take weeks to arrive when you need to be back online now? These are common factors that motivate manufacturers to build relationships with custom parts providers.
There are many benefits to building a relationship with a custom parts supplier such as:
- Ability to source parts quickly. In manufacturing, time is money. When a machine has stopped working because a part needs to be replaced, you simply don’t have time to source an OEM part that will take weeks to arrive. Custom parts suppliers will be able to create the product you need with more reasonable delivery times.
- Creation of discontinued parts. Do you have machinery that still does the job but is no longer made? This can be frustrating when you need to find parts. Even if you cannot source an OEM part for the machinery, a custom parts supplier can create it to your exact specifications. This can keep older or obsolete machinery in working order even if OEM parts have been discontinued.
- Cost savings. While it is not always the case, you may even find that the custom parts are more affordable than the OEM parts you have purchased in the past. If you can get back online faster and more affordably, why wouldn’t you choose to go with a custom parts supplier?
As you can see, there are many impactful business reasons to build a relationship with a custom parts supplier. With today’s technology, custom parts are created to match the OEM part specs exactly, so you don’t have to sacrifice quality or durability to benefit your business.
