European Parts Sourcing

With the steady decline in U.S. manufacturing of high-value capital equipment for at least the past 20 years, we have seen more and more machinery coming from abroad.  The machinery for many industries, such as printing, corrugated, woodworking, automated warehousing and numerous other sectors, are now dominated by European OEM’s.

Included in these machines are hundreds of components manufactured by thousands of sub-suppliers who have no representation in the U.S.  Because of this lack of representation, the OEM has been the easiest source for these replacement parts.  The only problem with this arrangement is the exorbitant prices charged by the OEM.

Ability & Drive interrupts this cycle with partners in Germany, Italy, and the United Kingdom, who shop your requirements in the manufacturer's country of origin, in their language and currency.  The difference in pricing can be startling even for low quantities.

We have weekly consolidated shipments from numerous distribution points in Europe for the most economical import.  We can also arrange “next-flight-out shipments” for mission-critical requirements.

Our European Sourcing Services & Capabilities:

  • Identify and locate the part
