About the role

In this customer-facing role, you will be responsible for:

  • accurately identifying the parts needed for repairs and maintenance of agricultural machinery and equipment for customers, over the counter or the phone.
  • accurately identifying agricultural machinery and equipment parts required by our mechanics to carry our service and repair on customer’s machinery and equipment. 
  • using catalogs, databases, and technical knowledge to correctly identify the specific parts or components, often by cross-referencing part numbers, descriptions, and specifications provided by the customer.
  • sourcing the parts needed either from our inventory or from our suppliers.
  • contacting multiple suppliers to check on availability and delivery times to ensure the most cost-effective and timely solution.
  • processing orders accurately and efficiently, including creating purchase orders, checking part numbers and quantities needed.

  • maintaining strong relationships with customers by providing excellent service, promptly addressing inquiries and concerns, and ensuring timely delivery of parts orders.
  • assisting with inventory management, including stocktaking and keeping the showroom fully stocked and presentable.
