As our company has grown in size, capabilities to service our customers has grown as well. In the early days, we would receive customer requirements lists through our website, or directly via spreadsheets emailed to us. Lists greater than ten line items could cause us problems. Today, with sophisticated proprietary technologies in place, we are able to manage bills-of-material with 4000 part numbers (or more) with relative ease.
From Simple Beginnings
WBParts was founded in 2006 by the same team that created USBid, Inc. As a wholly owned subsidiary of USBid, we are able to draw upon a decade of procurement experience. Located in Palm Bay, Florida, WBParts serves the aerospace industry as a global provider of aircraft parts and ground support equipment for commercial and military aerospace applications.
Through our dedication and commitment to customer service and quality we have been able to grow from "3 guys at desks in a warehouse" to our current level of 40 well trained, empowered, and motivated employees.
Our internet enabled online search and procurement service has allowed us to extend our reach far beyond our US borders - to date WBParts has worked with buyers in 183 countries.
WBParts provides vital resources to help our customers with their procurement needs. When time and manpower resources are limited our customers turn to WBParts to outsource their part searching, sourcing, purchasing and logistics activities.
Our specialties includes military aircraft structural components, mil-standard hardware and fasteners, test stands, and aircraft line replacement units and subassemblies.
