Three Big Factors to Consider when Purchasing Aftermarket Components

Three Big Factors to Consider when Purchasing Aftermarket Components

Keep these basic concepts in mind when searching for reliable aftermarket products.

When it comes to sourcing aftermarket parts, there are many different factors to consider. From original parts to will-fit components, there are many differences not only in quality, but also in the overall service and purchase experience. Here are a few tips to consider when sourcing parts for a repair or special application project:

  1. Not all parts are the same. There are many different suppliers and aftermarket manufacturers in the world now and companies have convenient access to many options worldwide. However, just because a part says it will fit the OEM’s original requirements it does not mean it will provide the same reliability, safety, and performance. OEM components have been tested and tried for years before they hit the market and have developed a strong reputation for quality during years of real-life application. Just because a company says their product will fit, does not mean it will function as well. When it comes to sourcing quality, it is essential that companies purchase from the original manufacturer or a supplier to the original manufacturer.
  2. Service adds essential value. It is important to consider what kind of service you will receive from a supplier when ordering parts. Do you have access to someone to discuss your specific needs for each component or project order? Or do you just have a list of product to select from and no additional information or collaboration options. This may not seem like a big deal at first, but when you have a situation where you need a custom product or have a question or special situation you are dealing with, the service you receive will make all the difference.
  3. Who is the original supplier? Not every aftermarket component needs to be purchased directly from the OEM. In fact, many components are available that are as good or better than the original. Do some research. Sometimes, parts can be sourced directly from the OEM supplier – which provides additional value because you are able to work directly with the company that actually manufactured the product.   For example, Huron Automatic Screw Company is a trusted supplier to many different OEMs and can provide custom products and aftermarket components that will meet OEM specifications.

Huron Automatic Screw Company proudly manufactures custom components and is a reputable supplier for the aftermarket industry. If you are looking for replacement parts or custom fasteners and components, you can trust the team at Huron Automatic Screw Company to provide exceptional service and to help you source the correct part that will provide the best performance and reliability.
