Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are dependent upon the ability to maintain optimum production levels as well as keeping costs associated with production low as they work to meet the supply chain needs of their customers.

Working in diverse markets ranging from electric motors to industrial cranes used in construction, manufacturers depend on every belt, bearing and other pieces of equipment working flawlessly.

To reduce downtime, maintain costs and assure adherence to engineering specifications, manufacturers turn to Interstate Companies for our knowledge and expertise. We offer a full suite of products and services created specifically to meet the needs of OEMs, including fully outsourced assembly and sub-assembly through our ISO 9001:2008 certified Interstate AssemblySystems division.

Interstate BearingSystems is also uniquely qualified to serve the OEM industry. Not only does this division carry a full range of bearings, belts, seals and other job-critical components, it is staffed by professionals with decades of experience in evaluating complex processes and offering solutions designed to enhance efficiency. This includes our vendor-managed inventory (VMI) and kitting capabilities, which include just-in-time delivery service.

Additional support for manufacturers is provided by Interstate IndustrialSystems. Our professional, highly trained team members are available to work in manufacturing plants and facilities to complete annual planned maintenance and turnarounds, manage all MRO work or handle emergency repairs. Interstate team members can also assist on a short-term basis with a larger-than-usual manufacturing job, allowing our clients to have the staff they need without having the burden of employment costs associated with traditional staffing.
