OEM vs non-OEM

Friday, 30 Aug 2019

Finding replacement parts for your engine can be a daunting and time-consuming endeavor. Sorting through parts lists, finding a supplier, and waiting on delivery—not to mention that your equipment may be down the entire time.

Fairbanks Morse understands the hassles involved in maintaining critical equipment. That is why Fairbanks Morse offers original equipment manufacturer (OEM) replacement parts for your engine, simplifying repairs and ensuring the reliability of your engine.

Fairbanks Morse OEM parts provide maximum equipment uptime, improve fuel efficiency, and extend the life of your engine. Of course, purchasing OEM parts may be more expensive than non-OEM parts, but the peace of mind and lifetime savings that OEM parts provide far outweighs the upfront cost. In fact, using OEM parts can save upwards of one million dollars over the life of your engine!

While it’s true that non-OEM parts may have shorter lead times, purchasing OEM parts offers you a predictable schedule without the headache of balancing different schedules from various suppliers—not to mention the debacle that ensues when the wrong non-OEM part arrives. Further, using non-OEM replacement parts may cause unforeseen, in-season downtime, which may have a domino effect in delays.

When the reliability of your equipment matters, the parts you put into it matters. Non-OEM parts may decrease the lifetime of your engine with reduced quality and durability. Fairbanks Morse OEM parts are meticulously manufactured for your specific engine to ensure a long-lasting, reliable piece of equipment.
