Repair Before Failure… Makes Us Different

Our commitment to the customer is predicated on providing world class service through our highly skilled, factory trained and certified technicians. This allows us to lower the Cost Per Hour*, which is the goal of any organization that requires material handling equipment. Central to that commitment is our service theme, which revolves around Repair Before Failure. The most important aspect of our process is this: we take the time necessary to locate and repair issues that may not be apparent on the surface, but down the road will prevent issues that can lead to costly repairs if left unattended.
