Standard parts catalogue boasts easier navigation

UK standard parts and machine accessories manufacturer WDS has released its latest catalogue, claiming easier navigation with colour coded product sections and the inclusion of a picture, alphabetical and numerical index.

Over 15,000 parts are covered in the 800 page book, each with a clear photograph and comprehensive technical specification.

Chris Putman, WDS Sales and Marketing Director, comments: "We want to make life as easy as possible for our customers, this is why we have gone the extra mile to make sure that every part is easy to find. It's also why all products in the catalogue are available with no minimum order quantity and without a small order surcharge, meaning that customers have complete flexibility when placing an order. Over 97% of orders are satisfied from stock and in many cases they can be delivered next day."

WDS manufactures and distributes Europe's largest range of standard parts for use as machine build components. With its own in-house R and D and manufacturing facilities the company has built up a large portfolio of products which is continuing to expand. The latest additions to the new catalogue include: anti-vibration mounts, anti-vibration feet, ball transfer units, safety quick release pins, coloured button indexing handle, wire thread repair kits and cam clamps.

Catalogues can be ordered from the WDS sales team on 0845 606 6677.
