COST-EF­FEC­TIVE SO­LU­TIONS FOR MIN­ING SEC­TOR

The Australian Mining Review - - PARTS & COMPONENTS - RAY CHAN

CATER­PIL­LAR® dealer WesTrac has launched Flex­iParts™ & Min­ing Ser­vices to pro­vide clients with ac­cess to a broad range of used, re­fur­bished and as-new parts.

A new web­site at www.flex­iparts.com. au, with an ex­ten­sive on­line in­ven­tory, is sup­port­ing the busi­ness on­line. The busi­ness has op­er­ated as a di­vi­sion within WesTrac for some time and is now be­ing es­tab­lished as a new brand fo­cused on sourc­ing and sell­ing cost-ef­fec­tive parts, com­po­nents and at­tach­ment so­lu­tions from their global net­work.

Flex­iParts™ & Min­ing Ser­vices also al­lows cus­tomers to sell un­wanted ma­chin­ery and parts and will pur­chase and dis­man­tle ma­chines to en­sure there is a large range and di­verse in­ven­tory on hand. As well as Cat® parts and equip­ment, the busi­ness sources and sells a broad range from other OEM brands.

Ex­change and out­right pur­chas­ing op­tions are also avail­able for non­pow­er­train prod­ucts.

Min­ing & Flex­iParts™ Gen­eral Man­ager Travis Cargill said the ser­vice was be­ing ramped up in re­sponse to cus­tomer de­mand for more flex­i­ble so­lu­tions, dif­fer­en­ti­ated price points and faster de­liv­ery times, which are not al­ways pos­si­ble when wait­ing for new parts and com­po­nents.

“The ma­jor ad­van­tage of Flex­iParts™ & Min­ing Ser­vices is that it pro­vides cus­tomers with cost-ef­fec­tive op­tions, sourced specif­i­cally for their needs, from any­where in the world,” Mr Cargill said.

“That of­ten re­duces wait times that can oc­cur when pur­chas­ing new parts and pro­vides cus­tomers with sig­nif­i­cant sav­ings.

“It’s also im­por­tant to note that while the busi­ness is evolv­ing into a new brand, it will con­tinue to main­tain its close ties with other di­vi­sions within WesTrac and re­tain in-depth fa­mil­iar­ity of cus­tomer sites and re­quire­ments.”

An­other ma­jor ben­e­fit pro­vided to Flex­iParts & Min­ing Ser­vices cus­tomers is the pro­vi­sion of trans­port frames, specif­i­cally de­signed to al­low safe trans­porta­tion of a broad range of items.

WesTrac Prod­uct Sup­port Gen­eral Man­ager Danielle Bull said that WesTrac has a duty of care un­der the Chain of Re­spon­si­bil­ity leg­is­la­tion to en­sure safe trans­porta­tion of bulky items, a key con­cern for cus­tomers.

“We’ve put a lot of em­pha­sis on en­sur­ing we can pro­vide fit-for-pur­pose trans­port frames for a large range of parts, so cus­tomers know they not only have ac­cess to well-priced parts, but de­liv­ery to site will be a seam­less process,” she said.

The new brand fo­cuses on sourc­ing and sell­ing cost-ef­fec­tive parts, com­po­nents and at­tach­ment so­lu­tions from their global net­work.
