Emergency parts supply



We had a call from a marine operator the other day, and they had a serious problem on their hands.

The cooling jet on their Cummins KT19 engine had been blocked, resulting in a seized piston, which they urgently needed replacing.

They contacted their usual supplier and received some bad news:

It would be weeks before they could supply a new piston.

Had they been forced to wait for it, their vessel would have been out of service for well over a month, resulting in serious charter penalties, a tarnished reputation for the vessel operator, and – obviously – reduced productivity.

Thankfully, when they came to us it was a different story.

We contacted one of our European suppliers, they had the piston in stock, and just a few days later, the client had the part in their possession.

Crisis averted.

If you have an urgent need for parts, and your usual supplier can’t help, please get in touch – there’s every chance we can provide the solution.
