ST. LOUIS — To increase customer convenience, Hunter Engineering Co. is now allowing customers to order genuine Hunter consumable parts on the Hunter website, hunter.com.
Complementing the nationwide network of local Hunter representatives, the new Shop Hunter Marketplace offers U.S. customers more than 150 commonly ordered wear items.
Examples include tire-changer polymer mount heads, tire paste and brushes, hooks for aligner targets, brake-lathe inserts and other typical consumable parts that can be installed by the customer.
Hunter's online marketplace enables customers to buy on their own schedule, with multiple delivery options available, including next-day air, the company said.
Shop Hunter Marketplace offers progressive filtering leading to the specific item, product descriptions and large photos illustrating the location of the part on the equipment to help confirm the customer has made the correct selection. Installation tips and relevant information provided by Hunter service representatives are also included.
To maximize Shop Hunter convenience, instant access to the customer's local service rep is a click or call away, to ask questions or possibly arrange same-day delivery, Hunter said.
Shop Hunter represents an expansion of Hunter equipment users' ordering capabilities. Customers using the HunterNet2 online portal already have the option of ordering online, with the added benefit of having replacement part compatibility mapped directly to equipment in their shop.
"People buy Hunter equipment because of its productivity and profitability," Pete Liebetreu, Hunter marketing vice president, said.
"In addition to their local reps, customers are now able to purchase genuine Hunter replacement parts online if they prefer. The Shop Hunter Marketplace is another way we respect our customer uptime and convenience needs."
