Preventative Maintenance is key to your organizations success!

When you think about it your equipment is similar to your car or truck. Can you imagine what would happen to your car if you changed the oil every 18,000 kms instead of every 10,000 kms? You would notice a difference in your cars performance after 100,000 kms. It would become unreliable and if you chose to repair or rebuild the engine the end cost and the amount of time it would take would easily exceed the amount of time and money the oil changes would have taken! Inconsistent maintenance results in equipment downtime when you cannot afford it! There is nothing more frustrating then missing an on time delivery due to equipment failure, especially if that failure could have been avoided.

Preventative Maintenance is more then greasing and oiling your machines though. A good preventative maintenance program anticipates the type of breakdowns you will likely have and takes steps to ensure they never happen. This can involve several maintenance procedures. Four key maintenance practices will increase your machines up time.

  1. Cleaning
  2. Lubrication
  3. Inspections
  4. Adjustments

Sound preventative maintenance requires a commitment of time and finances. The reward for your commitment is priceless! Increased reliability will help you avoid that call to your customer explaining why you cannot deliver on time. Over time the monetary and time commitment is a fraction of the cost of repairing or replacing your equipment prematurely.

We have developed preventative maintenance programs for hundreds of equipment types and brands. Programs that have reduced the over all cost of maintenance. We can help you too!

We now offer a unique program for small businesses with only a few pieces of equipment. We can inspect your equipment yearly and develop a customized preventative maintenance program. We can then train your personnel to perform the proper maintenance procedures, generate work orders at the defined frequencies, mail them to you, and file your records in our office. Why is this important? Sound record keeping is crucial. If an employee is injured on equipment in your facility, the maintenance records you keep are your proof that you have not neglected your machinery and put your employees at risk!

Service contracts available for single or multiple machines, on either a 3, 6 or 12 month basis. 

This consists of the following:

i.  General inspection of machinery, checking for any worn parts that could contribute to possible breakdown;
ii.  Machine would be cleaned, and all lubrication points replenished;
iii.  Machine would be tested for accuracy, safety and altered accordingly;
