MinnPar Acquires Rights to Manufacture Grove Manlift Replacement Parts

Minneapolis, Minn.-based MinnPar, a subsidiary of PartsZone, has agreed to purchase the rights to manufacture and sell service and replacement parts for all models of Grove Manlift aerial work platforms from Manitowoc Crane Group. Since 1982, MinnPar has provided OEMs a solution to the aftermarket service parts management of non-core and discontinued product lines.

“We chose to partner with MinnPar because of their proven track record for customer service,” said Larry Weyers, executive VP Manitowoc Crane Group. “Their technical and customer support expertise ensures that current or future generation owners of industry-leading Grove Manlift aerial work platform equipment will have continued availability of genuine OEM replacement parts they have come to expect.”

In transitioning the service parts management business to PartsZone/MinnPar, OEMs such as Manitowoc Crane Group transfer all blueprints, engineering drawings, parts inventories, customer and supplier lists, and transactional records.
