Parts Town has launched an e-commerce marketplace that is designed to enable customers to access local inventory of genuine OEM parts, enabling improved equipment up-time and performance.
The ‘Parts In Town’ service allows local service companies and distributors to display their OEM parts inventory on the company’s website and benefit from the traffic it receives.
CEO Steve Snower said: “We have a deep commitment to industry innovation and a passion for making genuine OEM parts accessible faster than ever before. We are also particularly excited about what this technology and program enables, because it brings unique benefits to local service companies and distributors, allowing them to benefit from the traffic on partstown.com to help them grow their parts sales and expand their customer base.”
Parts In Town is the latest in a long line of industry firsts created by Parts Town, which includes the industry’s most utilized website and mobile app, as well as several unique features.
The company recently announced the launch of an enhanced version of ‘techtown,’ an online community for technicians across the industry to share best practices, get answers to their questions, and access helpful information.
Emanuela Delgado, VP of Innovation at Parts Town, states:“We are always looking for new ways to innovate and support the foodservice industry, our manufacturer and customer partners. With Parts In Town and techtown, we are creating programs that are part of a broader strategy and commitment to supporting businesses doing critical service work in commercial kitchens every day.”
The initial launch of Parts In Town took place at the end of last year, with full ramp-up coming in the first half of 2020.
