Rusty Magiera, General Manager for United Ford Parts Distribution Center, recently announced that the Ford Customer Service Division has launched Omnicraft, an all-new brand of replacement parts for all makes of non-Ford vehicles.

“United Ford is proud of our 96% off-shelf fill rate. It emphatically says, we have your parts.” Their location has been on East 61st Street just east of Garnett for 14 years. Still, many residents are still unaware that they sell wholesale to the public as well as to Ford dealerships, independent repair centers and collision centers. “Everyone is welcome,” says Magiera. United Ford is the only parts distribution center owned by Penske in the U.S. and they ship anywhere in the country. They are excited to be offering Omnicraft products for all vehicle makes complete with Ford’s industry-leading warranty. “Omnicraft is OE (original equipment) quality offered at a great savings. Don’t be afraid to walk up to our warehouse parts counter. Everyone is welcome,” emphasizes Magiera. Initial Omnicraft offerings target the most requested parts that include oil filters, brake pads and rotors, loaded struts, starters and alternators. Inventories will continue to grow as demand grows.
