Minnpar To Make Parts For Grove Access Platforms? 07/04/2008
It has been suggested that the parts manufacturer, MinnPar, have bought the rights which allow them to manufacture and sell parts for Grove access platforms. Grove access platforms are manufactured by the Manitowoc Crane Group.
The manufacturer of Grove access platforms, Grove, was founded in 1947. It has been argued that the collaboration of Grove access platforms and Minnpar in the manufacture of service and replacement parts would provide Minnpar customers and customers of Grove access platforms with the optimum in product quality and service.
This switchover, referring to the manufacture of parts for Grove access platforms, will require the company behind Grove access platforms, Manitowoc Crane Group, to have to transfer items to MinnPar. These include the blueprints, customer and supplier list and transactional records relating to Grove access platforms.
It can be claimed that there has been an increasing trend of outsourcing manufacture of service and replacement parts, and this is not exclusive to Grove access platforms. It has also been claimed that such outsourcing as demonstrated by Minnpar and Grove aerial access platforms, has become increasingly frequent and it can be claimed, this phenomenon will not be slowing down for some time.
