OrangeParts is part of the Van Gent Forklift Parts BV company. The company that is founded in 1967 in Wijchen, Netherlands as Van Gent B.V. would later become known as Van Gent Forklift Parts B.V. Initially Van Gent B.V. focused only on selling forklift replacement parts as well as original parts of the brand Hyster.
1970 - International sales and growth
By 1970 Van Gent B.V. expanded its territory internationally with selling Hyster replacement parts abroad in Germany, Belgium, UK and even the USA. Other European countries would follow later on during the 1970s. With selling their products internationally Van Gent B.V. showed a steady growth during the 1970s. A small downside on the steady growth… the warehouse of 500m2 was not sufficient anymore. In 1985 Van Gent B.V. moved to a 2000m2 warehouse in Wijchen, Netherlands.
1990 - InParts - an engineering factory owned by Van Gent B.V.
In 1990 Van Gent BV founded Inparts B.V as a subsidiary. This subsidiary would focus solely on (re)-engineering and producing Hyster forklift replacement parts for Van Gent B.V. Beside re-engineering Inparts designs products like the AL4000 forklift jack which was introduced in 1990. The infamous AL4000 forklift jack would soon be used by mechanics from Toyota, Nissan and many more forklift brands.
1995 - Supplier of all popular brands of forklift trucks
Van Gent B.V. was still showing a steady growth in sales. By 1995 Van Gent moved to a new and bigger warehouse in Beuningen, Netherlands with twice the capacity (4000m2) compared to the former warehouse. In 1996 the management decided it was time to be a multi-brand wholesaler of forklift replacement parts. Due to changes in the market - the rise of big Japanese car manufacturers such as Toyota, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Komatsu who had made a successful entrance into the market for forklift trucks in the mid 1980s- the product/brand line was expanded to include parts for all brands, makes and models forklifts. Besides the popular Japanese brands also German, Korean and even Italian brands became part of the new and expanded product line of Van Gent B.V.
2000 - A larger warehouse and the birth of OrangeParts
Van Gent B.V. continued to successfully expand their business. By 2000 again a bigger warehouse was needed. Van Gent B.V. moved its headquarters to Nijmegen, Netherlands to a 10.000m2 warehouse. A year later in 2001 the brand name OrangeParts was registered. All non-OEM forklift parts supplied by Van Gent forklift Parts would now be sold as an OrangeParts product. OrangeParts would soon gain a reputable brand reputation, due to its excellent quality/price ratio.
2006 - Exclusive dealership ATIB
In 2006 Van Gent B.V. signed a exclusive agreement with ATIB - an Italian manufacturer of forklift attachments and battery chargers. The agreement made Van Gent the exclusive dealer of ATIB-products throughout the BeNeLux (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg).
2007 - 40 years in the business and crossing the ocean
Van Gent B.V. celebrates its 40th year anniversary in 2007. Being 40 years in the business the management of Van Gent B.V. decided to make the jump across the big ocean by establishing a subsidiary in the USA (Holland, Michigan). This subsidiary is called Intella Liftparts Inc.
2011 - BlueSpot
In 2011 Van Gent B.V. introduced its own Blue Spot Safety Led with a voltage range of 9-96V. Due to the superior quality and robustness the OrangeParts Blue Spot would become serious competitor for the original Linde Blue Spot, which only has a voltage range of 12-48V.
2012 - New Management
By 2012 the founders of Van Gent Forklift Parts B.V. presented its successor, Dave Lam. With the presentation of Dave Lam, Van Gent Forklift continued to grow and make profit year after year.
2014 - OrangeParts webshop
One of the first major strategic changes by the new management was made in 2014 by introducing a webshop - www.orangeparts.com - which would be serving the end user of forklift parts. In the same year Van Gent Forklift Parts and Pramac signed off on an exclusive dealership for The Netherlands.
2017 - 50th year anniversary of Van Gent
50 Years in the business and introducing a brand new webshop.
2021 - OrangeParts goes solo
After TVH acquired Van Gent Forklift Parts early 2021, it was decided that OrangeParts would part ways from parent company Van Gent Forklift Parts B.V. and TVH. Not by being a competitor, but more being an additional online source for forklift parts serving the end users.
OrangeParts goals are to:
- Increase customer satisfaction even more
- Gain market share as a online webstore for forklift parts
