Stock levels increase to support maintenance market

The more companies that tighten maintenance budgets, the less are willing to hold stocks of spare parts. Instead they are expecting original equipment manufacturers and their service agents to hold stock for them. Bürkert Fluid Control Systems is one manufacturer that supports this model, with a complete parts and specifications catalogue online and distributors holding increased stock levels.

Direct replacement of components can be achieved quickly with over 500,000 items now available from stock for despatch 24 hours after the order is placed. This includes over 1,100 different product combinations. Bürkert achieve higher than 95% on time delivery.

The Bürkert Select catalogue, which is available both online and in hard copy, has over 400 pages of fluid control products including solenoids, pneumatic actuators, valve bodies, sensors, valve islands and controllers, each product has a comprehensive description, technical data and dimensions.

For customers that need to replace a discontinued product or that of another manufacturer, technical staff can assist with advice on the most suitable product for the application. Local distributors work very closely with Bürkert to determine sufficient stocking levels that will minimise any downtime for their customers.

As the manufacturer, Bürkert has increased its support levels for distributors and direct customers alike, as well as running promotional campaigns on certain, commonly used products such as pilot valves and angle seat valves. All of this is supported by an increased product stock holding that will help customers to minimise down-time and improve productivity.
