70 years in standard parts supply built on trust

Leeds manufacturer and supplier of standard parts and machine accessories, WDS Components is celebrating its seventieth anniversary.

Supplying industries around the world from aerospace to food and beverage, the company says that the key to success is a focus on product quality, fast availability and competitive pricing. With its manufacturing operations still located in Britain, this has helped WDS to retain the trust of its longstanding customers.

“WDS has been around for as long as the Queen – and that’s important because it shows our stability, based on the trust we hold mutually with our customers,” says the company’s digital marketing manager, Tony Porritt. And he should know; he’s worked at the manufacturer and supplier of standard parts and components for 25 years and is the third generation of his family to serve the company.

Today, WDS Components supplies OEMs, end users, and engineers with standard parts and machine accessories, as well as jigs and fixtures, hydraulic lifts and clamps, broaching and production equipment. The total range exceeds 25,000 products and the company supplies items from handles and hinges through to vices and clamps, applied to industries as diverse as aerospace and automotive, through to food and beverage and even the health and fitness markets.

“Our customers tell us that what sets us apart is our product quality, combined with same-day product availability and competitive pricing. One of the key reasons that we’re able to achieve these benefits is because of our onsite manufacturing,” says Tony.
