A new subsidiary “Quantiparts” has been established by Wartsila for trading spare parts of its classic 4-stroke Wartsila engines. QuantiParts, fully owned by Wärtsilä, will operate from the Netherlands and serves customers in the marine, locomotive and power plant industries worldwide.
QuantiParts trades original engine manufacturer (OEM) spare parts for selected mature Wärtsilä medium- and high-speed four-stroke engines, such as Deutz, Stork, Bolnes, Sulzer A/S, Poyaud, SACM and Crepelle. The new company is based in Zwolle, the Netherlands, where its spare parts are traded from. The company’s stock consists of nearly 5.5 million components for more than 40 different engine types. QuantiParts employs about 70 people in Zwolle and in France. All employees are former Wärtsilä employees who bring the Wärtsilä legacy and expertise with them. QuantiParts serves its customers worldwide.
Establishing QuantiParts fits very well with Wärtsilä Services strategy of aligning its organization in order to ensure tailor-made services for its customers.
According to Mr. Guido Barbazza, Vice President of Emerging Businesses within Wärtsilä Services, “We want to satisfy our customers by offering something new and outstanding”.
