OEC® was established in December of 2000 with a singular mission: to provide high quality technology solutions, to automakers and their franchised dealers which facilitate the sale of Original Equipment (OE) replacement parts. In the past ten years, we have extended this mission to additional original equipment manufacturers in other industries, domestically and abroad, seeking e-commerce expertise in expediting and supporting their parts supply chains.In working to deliver on this singular mission, OEC has remained steadfast in its commitment to integrity, building high quality solutions, and maintaining a leadership position within our industry.
At OEC, integrity is engrained within every business action. Our business is built on truth, honesty, and sincerity from the people we employ to the products and programs we deliver. We empower associates with self-managed decision-making that is vital to the health and success of our customers, owners, and industry stakeholders. Our commitment is that simple and that powerful.
Our commitment to the customer runs deep. We develop high quality solutions, supported by the industry's highest standards and processes, which strengthen our customers' ability to improve efficiencies, drive brand loyalty, and enhance overall profitability. These guiding principles direct our solutions and services to deliver what our customers need: Right Part. Right Place. Right Time.
Our vision is to be the leading provider of technology solutions and professional services within the original equipment replacement parts business. Delivering on this vision, OEC facilitates the automotive industry's largest online marketplace of more than 60,000 buyers and sellers of OE parts. Delivering $20 billion in parts transactions annually, our solutions create a smarter OE parts marketplace.
