European Automation offers nine-hour parts service04 August 2011

An automation supply chain specialist is now offering a nine-hour component delivery for PLCs, servo drives, servo motors, HMIs and variable speed drives anywhere in Europe.

Stafford=-based European Automation says its premium service is intended for plant users where broken components cause downtime that typically costs manufacturers millions of pounds.

Mark Proctor, managing director of European automation, explains that the speed of his company's service is the result of its ultra-lean warehousing system, as well as its investment in an extensive supplier and logistics network.

"In light of recent financial turmoil, lots of manufacturers have stopped stocking sufficient quantities of spare parts," observes Proctor.

"Equally, there are lots of reasons why even the best JIT purchasing system can fail. As a result, we believe that having ultra fast access to the right spares for your application is crucial," he adds.

"Our network of preferred partner warehouses, in addition to our own distribution centres, enables us to offer what we believe to be the fastest premium delivery service in the industry."

European Automation distributes parts and equipment manufactured by global brands including Siemens, Mitsubishi, ABB, Fanuc, Schneider Electric, Danfoss, Indramat and Guardmaster.
