A costly problem within the fluid power sector involves urgent repair to critical yet often older machinery with little or no technical information to hand, which can result in multiple site visits to fix.
Increasingly multi-site OEMs seek national partners with a local presence to service their sites up and down the country in the most efficient way to mitigate costly downtime. Moreover, with the emergence of Industry 4.0* and the shift towards more integrated technologies, skilled fluid power engineers with experience in sophisticated monitoring, control and automation technologies are in high demand to get the job done single-handedly first time.
Our national planned maintenance operation will enable us to understand clients' machinery and have the required equipment prior to arriving onsite, to ensure we fix the problem first time.
Adding value as a Group
Working in partnership with other divisional members provides us with an instant customer base, enabling us to hit the ground running with existing clients. Moreover, removing onsite maintenance from our PMC division will enable them to focus on securing new business from existing and new clients which in turn they can pass on to the Onsite Services team as an aftersales service.
* Industry 4.0 combines automation and information exchange within manufacturing.
