Through many years of advertising, promotion, warranty pressure or intimidation, a perception has been created that the parts supplied by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) for mining, construction and process equipment are genuine. Implying that the parts that are sold as aftermarket or original part manufacturer (OPM) are inferior copies.

The truth is that Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) generally design and assemble. With some exceptions, they make relatively few components that are used in the assembly of their equipment as it would be impossible to manufacture the thousands of components needed for each model. For that reason, among others, they outsource the manufacturing of parts and components to various Original Part Manufacturer (OPM) suppliers around the world.

A little-known fact among the public is that most Original Part Manufacturer (OPM) suppliers supply into the aftermarket- where the wool has been pulled over customers’ eyes. The aftermarket distributors often sell exactly the same parts used on the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) production line. Instead of supplying them in boxes with the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) logo, they are sold under the brand of the Original Part Manufacturer (OPM)- a private label, if you will.

PSH&I has compiled an extensive cross reference list of over 16,000 hydraulic pumps, motors, gearboxes, filters and valves that are manufactured by the Original Part Manufacturer (OPM) for the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). Our longstanding relationship with the Original Part Manufacturers (OPM) enables us to offer our customers the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) part quicker, at a lower cost. This helps our customers reduce maintenance costs and downtime- increasing their uptime and revenue and assisting them in achieving their KPIs and business goals.
