Guaranteed Parts
Two years ago Doosan Infracore America announced its 48-Hour Parts Guarantee for their wheel loader and excavator customers.

The program guarantees that Doosan heavy equipment machine owners will receive their “machine debilitating” replacement part, in hand, within two business days or Doosan will pay for a replacement machine rental. Doosan Infracore America will get the part in the hands of the customer, wherever they are in North America.

“This is a different kind of parts guarantee program,” said Michael Stanley, President/COO Doosan Infracore America. “We focus on maximizing the uptime of the customer. It doesn’t matter if you get a free $2.00 part. It matters that you are working and making money for your business.”
