WDS Component Parts has supplied standard parts, machine accessories and workholding components to many different industries around the world. Its engineers have taken advantage of such varied experience to learn from the unique challenges and requirements of each industry to develop one of the most comprehensive ranges of standard parts in the market as well as a bespoke engineering service that benefits customers globally.
WDS supplies components to an array of worldwide markets including OEM, Machine Build, Aerospace, Defence, Motor Sport, Marine, Automotive, Rail, MRO and Medical. Because WDS manufactures the majority of its product in-house, it has had to invest in a manufacturing infrastructure and its engineering knowledge to enable it to develop high quality solutions for such a wide range of requirements. This investment is a benefit to all customers, whether they’re a start-up manufacturing business or a Formula 1 team.
Chris Putman, Sales and Marketing Director for WDS, comments: “We’re well known for offering a product range that has unrivalled depth, but that’s only possible because we’ve been listening to, and learning from, our customers for decades. Whether your priority is accuracy, reliability, specialist materials or simply cost competitiveness, we understand that different industries have different requirements and we’re constantly expanding our range to ensure we have an answer for all of our customers.”
Unlike most distributors of standard parts, who are re-selling components that have been manufactured all over the world, WDS has in-house engineering capability that allows the business to offer a unique level of technical support – whether that’s finding the right off-the-shelf product or designing a bespoke solution. Projects undertaken by the WDS Bespoke Parts Design and Manufacture service range from an adaptation of an existing part through to a completely unique solution designed and developed specifically for the customer.
