TURKEY – Global milling equipment spare parts supplier Depart has launched an online shopping site to further enhance service delivery to customers around the globe.
Depart, a group company of Alapala Group offers a comprehensive range of professional services such as maintenance packages and remote connection systems in addition to spare parts.
The company has 45 offices and 3 distribution centers across the globe from whence it offers technical support and maintenance to millers.
It also offers a comprehensive range of professional services such as maintenance packages and remote connection systems in addition to spare parts supply.
The new online shop known as Depart Online accelerates the company’s transition to e-commerce and is set to operate on the basis of “Depart’s global experience and customer-oriented approach”.
Operating with a membership system, the site will offer a smooth customer experience to users, as well as special offers to celebrate its opening, according to Depart.
The move by Depart comes at a time when the global milling machine market is experiencing modest growth driven by demand from the end-users.
According to Grandview Research, the global grain processing equipment market size was valued at US$4.2 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.0% from 2019 to 2025.
Positive outlook of the food & beverage industry, predominantly in Asia Pacific, CSA, and the Middle East, is expected to act as a market driver over the forecast period, the market research firm noted.
Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period owing to the rising population, inclination of foreign companies interested in investing in the region, growing household income of the people, and changing food preferences.
Earlier, Depart’s parent company Alapala completed a flour mill expansion project for Indian manufacturing conglomerate Pressana Group.
The scope of the project included the installation of a new milling line with 150-tpd processing capacity in the existing mill building.
