IPD, a supplier of high-quality replacement parts for heavy-duty diesel and spark-ignited engines, has announced the launch of a new brand called IPD Xtra that is launching this week for its North American customers and will eventually roll out worldwide.
“IPD Xtra is comprised of carefully selected partnerships with other manufacturers that share our commitment to quality and are a strong fit with the IPD brand. These partnerships will be chosen to expand IPD’s product reach in markets that complement our customers’ needs,” said Michael Badar, IPD president.
This means IPD will only partner with companies that share IPD’s commitment to quality products, meet their rigorous quality standards and testing, are ISO 9001: 2015 certified and are fully dedicated to customer satisfaction.
IPD Xtra’s first partnership will be with Miami-based Maxiforce and will expand IPD’s product reach to include engine parts for the small-bore construction and power generation markets. IPD will offer its customers engine parts as small as the Caterpillar 1.5, as large as the 3500, and all Cat engines in between.
“This partnership provides IPD customers the most comprehensive replacement parts coverage in the construction industry – offering many engine kits that are hard to find,” said Bill Mirth, IPD’s director of Business Development, Americas.
Maxiforce is a brand devoted to manufacturing and distributing diesel engine parts for Caterpillar, Perkins, John Deere and other manufacturers. “Working with IPD is a true honor and a great opportunity for Maxiforce to break into new markets with our unique Caterpillar line of engine parts. We are excited and ready to be the first brand to work with IPD Xtra,” said Paul Kelley, vice president of Maxiforce.
IPD’s knowledgeable customer service teams are available to answer any questions, respond to quotes or take orders. Customers also can order IPD Xtra products through IPDNet, the company’s online portal that offers 24/7 online sales support, catalog searches and ordering. By adding access to Maxiforce’s three additional distribution centers in Florida, Indianapolis and California, plus IPD’s current six global centers, IPD Xtra shipments will reach customers quickly.
