French company Legris is a world leader in industrial technical components for fluid circuits. In 2001, Legris asked TraceParts to implement its CAD parts library for its OEM design offices and end-users.

As soon as we had completed our tests we had no hesitation about going with TraceParts, recalls Patrice SALEM, Marketing Support Manager at Legris.

These were:

  •  Its unique ability to offer two types of modelling: fixed-dimension components taken directly from the Legris CAD design offices (70% of the library) and families of parametric components.
  •  Its partnerships with CAD vendors, guaranteeing model quality in each format.
  •  The high level of service and professionalism of the engineering teams.
  •  The alternative methods for integrating components from the library: via the TraceParts or Legris Web sites, or from the broadly distributed Legris CD-ROM or the TraceParts DVD.

Today, 1,500 “low pressure” components are now available in the library. As from April 2007, another 700 parts will be added to the family, while the “high pressure” category is scheduled for release with a further 3,500 components.

Though Legris is mainly a B2B operation, it sees the on-line publication of its CAD models as a way of offering an additional service to its customers by saving them the tedious task of component modeling and offering them reliable models guaranteeing successful installation.

What we really appreciate about TraceParts is their ability to meet our quality demands and that it is a truly long-term partner. Since we introduced the service, product sales have been growing regularly. This helps us to foster customer loyalty and win new business. said Patrice SALEM

My TraceParts keeps seals tight

It quickly became very clear to us that we needed to respond to the market’s obvious demand so that we could continue to offer our customers the best possible service. So, early 2003, we began looking for a partner that could help us to produce an online CAD catalog.

Ingrid Wiedemann, Technical Documentation Manager at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions
“We owe a lot to TraceParts for our growth”

Since we were evaluating the investment only in terms of supplying CAD models, the financial effort seemed very high and we hesitated for a long time, especially since part of our catalogs are made up of parts manufactured by third parties. The sales and technical teams at TraceParts were finally able to convince us and we do not regret it at all, because the benefits largely surpass the simple service offered to our customers.

Marcel Dubois, General Manager for CSR
“TraceParts responds to our quality requirements and makes our products more visible”

An internal development would have caused us to make compromises, specifically on the proposed CAD formats. This orientation would have penalized some users of our components and would have been contrary to our tradition of offering the best service to our clients. This work went largely beyond the framework of our profession.
