The right C-parts range for you

The basis for your success in C-parts management is having a partner with the proper range. We offer more than 140,000 items that we keep in stock in our warehouses worldwide.

C-parts usually account for a large quantity of all part numbers in a bill of material. They are details such as metal or plastic fasteners (e.g., screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, pins, washers), as well as other small metal, rubber or plastic parts such as cables, springs, and electronic fasteners. And more.

Volume vs value

C-parts are unique in that the purchase price is only a tiny part of the total cost of a component, often as little as 20%. The remaining 80% of the total cost is made up of indirect costs in the form of:

Logistics costs

  • Forecasting, planning, and ordering

  • Incoming goods handling and inspection

  • Warehousing, stock taking, and stock control

  • Internal transports and linefeed

  • Freight, especially express freight

  • Capital costs, scrap, and obsolescence

Sourcing costs

  • Supplier sourcing, evaluation, and verification

  • Negotiation

  • Supplier administration

  • Parts administration

  • Phase-out/phase-in costs

Quality costs

  • Preventive quality measures, such as SQA, and corrective quality measures (scrap, rebuild)

  • Indirect quality costs such as line stops, replanning, and badwill
