What Is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in the Automotive Industry?
An Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is a company making original equipment parts for a specific vehicle manufacturer.
For example, General Motors (GM) uses multiple OEM’s to supply parts and assemblies used to build their vehicles. Company such as Mechanical Power is a certified parts supplier for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM).
Some OEM’s also sell parts directly to the consumer, under their own brand name and in some cases parts are identical to the OE part, but with different packaging and part numbers. Despite this, these parts can never be officially classified or marketed as OE, as they have not been supplied by the manufacturer.
Often automotive manufacturers use brands as their official OE part fitment. Audi often use Brembo brake calipers, Bose Audio sound system and Bridgestone tires as OE on lots of their vehicles, but these are not rebranded ‘Audi’. Instead they are actively promoted in their own right as they are highly desired premium specialist component brands.
