OEM Equipment

Thern’s OEM Equipment in Multiple Industries

What is an OEM? 

An OEM, or original equipment manufacturer, is a company that manufactures finished products comprised of equipment from different companies. For example, there are many OEMs involved in the auto industry. One car is comprised of many different components supplied by various manufacturers. A car manufacturer orders the parts, such as spark plugs or batteries, from a separate manufacturer and then assembles the parts into a car at their location.


OEM Equipment and Thern

OEMs are an important part of the business at Thern, Inc. Our VP of Marketing and Sales, John Lund, describes Thern’s relationship with OEMs:

“OEMs depend on Thern when they need their equipment to perform lifting, lowering, or positioning operations. Designing and manufacturing these solutions is a core competency at Thern, so it allows our OEM customers to focus on the things that make their equipment/offering special instead of investing scarce resources into an area where they may lack expertise or experience. Yes, the application might require Thern to engineer a custom product and control system, but we do so using our modular designs, saving our customers time and money. Best yet, when our OEM customers integrate a Thern product into their product/platform, they can be confident that their customer will enjoy trouble-free operation for years to come.”
