The OEM market has grown to become the largest industry within Kurz Industrial Solutions customer base. Approximately 65-70% of our total business is conducted with original equipment manufacturers. These companies install our products on their machines and then sell them to the industrial manufacturing market in both the U.S. and overseas. Some of the most common industries that we serve within the OEM base include conveyor manufacturers, converting equipment, overhead cranes, pumps and compressors, bulk material handling and industrial ovens.
Kurz sells and supports products that have a strong global presence to meet the increasingly diverse needs of our OEM customer base. Our product offering consists of many well-known & accepted name brands in the industry, including ABB, Siemens, Baldor, Dodge, Toshiba, SEW Eurodrive and WEG. With our broad selection, we can offer our OEM customers a complete drive package: controller, motor, coupling, gearbox, bearings, etc. – ONE Source, ONE Solution, ONE Purchase Order!
In addition, Kurz has a large service shop to assist OEMs with special requests. If a motor requires certain specifications, such as the addition of thermistors or perhaps the modification of a conduit box, these changes can be taken care of in our local repair shop usually within a few days, thus greatly improving the cost and lead time of the motor.
Our OEM customers are our partners in business. We support each other and together we support the broader industrial market. Together we grow and together we succeed. We strive to cultivate long-term relationships with our OEM customers and foster a partnership that will accommodate them in growing their business and reaching their goals. When our OEM customers are successful, then we’re successful!
