SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Worthington Tractor Parts’ wholesale company Parts Express will open its first warehouse for distribution in Australia late in the third quarter of 2019. The facility will be located in Toowoomba, Queensland.
Parts Express is a leading wholesale supplier of ag parts in the United States. It carries a wide range of new aftermarket parts for tractors, combines (headers), grain heads (fronts), cotton pickers and skid steers. Parts Express stocks parts for most brands of equipment including John Deere, Case IH, Ford, New Holland, Massey Ferguson, AGCO and more. To accommodate the local Australian market, they will be distributing wholesale: CAMSO track systems, Gulf Western Oils, Redekop Mav systems, cane harvester parts and Chamberlain parts.
Parts Express products have previously been available in Australia through their sister company Neil’s Parts.
“We are excited to get the Parts Express business model operating in Australia.,” said Mike Winter, President of Worthington Tractor Parts and Director of Neil’s Parts Australia. “This will be the first of a few warehouses strategically located throughout Australia to bring quality parts at affordable prices straight to the dealerships and repairs shops when they need them.”
Bruce Jacobsma, Director of Parts Express, added, “Our goal is to make Parts Express a globally-recognized name in the agricultural spare parts market. This operation takes us one step closer to achieving that goal.”
Dealerships and repair shops will now buy direct through Parts Express via the online B2B website or by phone.
“Our goal is to supply the best service we can to the customer, the quality of the products and affordable pricing are key factors in doing this,” said Jason Atkins, General Manager/Director of Neil’s Parts. “Knowing what your customer wants and giving it to them is the most important part to achieve our goal. Having Parts Express in Australia will expedite the process of providing quality parts and saving the customers time and money in the long run.”
Parts Express currently has four distribution warehouses in the U.S., along with a bonded warehouse in Germany.
