Parts Town app surpasses 100,000 downloads during successful second quarter


Parts Town saw its mobile app surpass 100,000 downloads during the Q2 of 2019, the spare parts supplier has announced.

The app, which was first launched in 2010, was designed as a way to share equipment manuals and diagrams with technicians in the field, and its 100,000 downloads make it one of the leading apps in the industry.

Overall, the year’s second quarter was a positive one for the Illinois-based firm, with participating manufacturing partners for its Serial Number Lookup scheme growing 100% since the innovation was launched in January.

Steve Snower, the firm’s chief executive officer, said: “We are so grateful to have such incredible relationships with our manufacturer partners and customers, helping us to accelerate our mutual success into the second half of 2019.”

“Integrity guides every action at Parts Town, and because we prioritize a commitment to doing things the right way, we are able to keep the best long-term interests of our manufacturer partners and customers in mind.”

Parts Town has experienced 15 consecutive years of greater than 20% organic growth and this looks set to continue in 2019.

  1. I placed 3 orders with them and all three were the wrong item. They CHARGED me to ship them back and restocking fee. They won’t have many more downloads if they continue to conduct business like this. I will never buy another item from them.
