Recent Western Cape Business News

MTU South Africa, supplier of engines, complete propulsion and power systems now offers customers online search for spare parts: the Parts Search Portal.

This function allows for MTU SA customers to go online and conveniently search for parts they require, saving them valuable time that would have been spent on making a call to the sales department. Further to stock availability, the number of units available can be viewed, as well as where the parts are located, being either at the Cape Town or Johannesburg warehouses.

The Parts Search Portal offers customers fast and efficient service by eliminating telephone time wastage and optimising the customer’s purchasing experience. All necessary contact information is provided on the portal, so customers have everything they require to make their ordering and purchasing of parts hassle free,” says Michael Baumann, managing director of MTU SA.
