About Us/History

Milspares Ltd.

 
Milspares Ltd was established in 2004 when the founding Directors recognised an opportunity in the worldwide Commercial, Medical, Aerospace, Marine and Military spares market for a fast, reliable service in parts sourcing. Through our network of franchises and suppliers we can provide an extensive range of products and services.
 
The Milspares Group has dramatically increased its customer base through its reputation for recognising the exacting needs of its customers, whether supplying a single washer or a million metres of cable. Our reputation is based on our ability to act quickly and efficiently in tracking down those hard-to-find parts and materials. Milspares has been operating in this arena for many years now and our national and international blue-chip customer base knows it can depend on us to get the job done, quickly and cost-effectively. 
 
In February 2006 Milspares completed the acquisition of Display Components Ltd. This enhanced the company's worldwide distribution capabilities and also gave us our first manufacturer franchise with National Wire & Cable who operate out of Los Angeles.  As success continued, in 2011 the company was re-branded with a new 'Worldwide Distribution' logo and a new website launched.  Managing Director Keith Shortman said at the time; "this now formally recognizes our place in global distribution".  
 
The Milspares Group now comprises:
Milspares Ltd
Electra Charge Ltd
 
Customer care is very important to us and we are very proud that our Quality Control System is now certified to AS9120A.  We have a proven track record for reliability and trust and this coupled with our new certification reaffirms that our customers will be provided with the best possible products and services at all times.
 
We have a policy of continual development and improvement, we are dedicated to the Quality objectives that are set out in our Quality Certification - BS EN 9120:2010 and BS EN ISO9001:2008 Certificate Number GB15/92515.
