Spare Parts Distribution Centers Now Open in Poland and Shanghai
SPX FLOW Food and Beverage customers across Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East can expect their spare parts to arrive faster due to the opening of new distribution centers in Xidu, China (located near Shanghai) and Bydgoszcz, Poland earlier this year.
“The new Spare Parts Distribution Centers are further proof that we are fully committed to not only meeting, but to exceeding the needs of our Food and Beverage customers," said Paul Crawley, Vice President, Global Aftermarket Strategy for SPX FLOW Food and Beverage. “We are relentlessly focused on enhancing the overall customer experience with SPX FLOW and our ability to fulfill our customers' spare parts needs in a more timely and efficient manner will go a long way in helping us serve our customers."
“Quick and easy access to spare parts is critical for our customers and their ability to continue operating as smoothly and efficiently as possible,” added John Greaves, Vice President, Global Manufacturing & Supply Chain at SPX FLOW Food and Beverage. “The establishment of our new aftermarket service distribution centers reflects our deep commitment to meeting the needs of our food and beverage customers and enabling them to maintain their operations with as little disruption as possible. Our new, centrally-located distribution centers will help ensure they have full access to genuine SPX FLOW parts whenever they need them.”
The Distribution Center in Xidu provides enhanced aftermarket services to food and beverage customers in the Asia Pacific region and carries commonly used spare parts, including gaskets, seals, shafts, filters, homogenizer valves and seats. Parts will be delivered in a timely manner and customers will have a choice of shipment options tailored to their specific needs.
This is a significant development for the SPX FLOW Food and Beverage business in the APAC region. It helps guarantee customers will receive what they need, when they need it, with the assurance of high-quality, original spare parts for their SPX FLOW processes.
The Distribution Center in Bydgoszcz carries a large inventory of spare parts, such as gaskets, seals, shafts, homogenizer valves and seats, scraper blades and filters, for APV and Gerstenberg Schröder components used in food and beverage processing equipment. It also includes SPX FLOW plate heat exchanger spare parts from the Industrial end market group. The new distribution center will be able to deliver the most commonly used spare parts in as little as 24 hours to most European locations.
The Bydgoszcz distribution center will provide customers a choice of shipping options to meet their individual needs, including next-day and standard three-day delivery. To help maximize their operational efficiency, SPX FLOW will also offer a consolidation service to make handling multiple spare parts easier.
