The Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) are challenged by demanding requirements and ability to respond to the customer’s needs while keeping cost effectiveness and quality high. Reliable flow control solutions minimize the life cycle cost of the process and extend equipment lifetime. With over 65 years of experience, we are an experienced and reliable OEM valve and pump manufacturer partner.
Common challenges for OEMs
OEM equipment often operates in harsh/demanding environment and challenging process conditions. Thus the components have to be selected respectively for safe and reliable equipment operation leading to the maximum the uptime. Also, the necessary maintenance has to be carried out as quickly as possible with minimized spare part costs.
Another important aspect for OEM’s is maintaining high efficiency while keeping their own stock non-existent and operate based on the demand-driven supply chain. The latter is often complex and outsourced further down the chain. Following those requirements is challenging and only successful cooperation between business operations leads to satisfied end customers.
Main OEM challenges are:
Finding the optimal components. Valves or pumps could be critical components for processes and operations.
Reliable supplier relationship. The supplier needs to be able to develop its products according to changing customer demands.
Spare parts availability and TCO (total cost of ownership). Ability to partner with a reliable and responsible provider of complete project deliveries instead of only supplying individual equipment. In an optimal situation, the partner manages the entire lifecycle of the equipment and its components.
Brand. All provided original equipment has to include the original brand and colours which follow the brand guidelines.
Quality. Make sure the components add value to the proprietary equipment and meet the same quality standards.
