Parts for Machines (PFM), which aims to become the first one-stop aftermarket online sales platform for Agriculture and Plant machinery, is now in the fourth quarter of its first trading year and is celebrating its latest partnership, with wiper blade giant Trico, as well as the expansion of some existing partnerships, as it looks forward optimistically to the future.
The concept of top brands being delivered to the doorstep of farmers or construction companies/sites has found a ready market and the level of business transacted has steadily risen since Parts for Machines’ inception.
Trico has been quick to see the potential in being the wiper brand for the unique aftermarket sales platform as First Brands Group Brand & Marketing Manager (Europe), Sam Robinson, said: “We’re thrilled to join the innovative company that is Parts For Machines.
“They’re still a ‘young’ company, but they have certainly made their mark on the industry and we’re delighted to be able to say that we’re now joining their journey.”
“As the inventor of the wiper blade, TRICO is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of windscreen wiper systems, blades and refills, with production facilities on five continents.
“Our range of “TX” heavy duty blades are engineered specifically for demanding industrial environments and are a perfect addition to the PFM portfolio.
“Alongside this our key “Exact Fit” and “Flex” ranges designed for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles will ensure that customers of PFM can cover their wiper blade needs for their entire fleet.”
PFM’s well-established supplier-partners are extending their reach, as the portal launches a new “widget” to simplify the customer journey and to locate the right SIP compressor or welding machines for their needs, while Astrak increases the number of its part references on PFM from 1800 to almost 40,000 undercarriage tracks and associated hardware.
TRICO will also have a wiper blade finder as part of their offer on the PFM platform.
