New Parts for Old: Cost-Competitive and Comparable to OEM Equipment

Obsolescence and breakage of components and equipment is a continual challenge for designers and manufacturers in the electronics, aerospace, automobile and military markets. As a part nears its end-of-life phase, manufacturers must scramble to scoop up remaining supplies or redesign their product to accommodate an alternative component. Replacements for malfunctioning or worn-out parts usually incur the high costs associated with OEM equipment, or the high risk of being counterfeit.

Radwell International offers another, more cost-effective option for manufacturers: Radwell verified substitutes. These high-quality new product replacements can be substituted for the original manufacturer’s item at a considerable savings. Why rely on a legacy component or an expensive part when a new and equivalent replacement can be secured at lower cost?

The company’s verified subs catalog has quickly expanded from just a few parts to more than 20,000. The portfolio includes electrical products as well as batteries, computer cables and communication boards, valves, gaskets, push buttons, contact kits and limit switches. Each item is new – not surplus or refurbished – and is accompanied by a three-year warranty. All in-stock verified sub items ship in 24 hours.
