When your equipment gets damaged, do you repair it with the best available parts and services? Do you purchase OEM replacements?
We’ve spent the last several weeks debating the multiple aspects influencing our sector due to Covid-19 (labor and material shortages, truck availability, high prices) and how we navigate this new environment in our company.
The newest factors impacting our industry are shipping and logistics bottlenecks, making manufacturers’ acquisition of original equipment for replacements very challenging. In today’s Timber Talks, we will talk about our Industrial Roll Services Program and how we are guiding our customers through the process of repairing their rollers vs. purchasing OEM replacements.
What is the issue?
The pandemic has generated many restrictions in shipping, causing delays and consequently higher prices in production and manufacturing. It has sidelined truck drivers, disrupting the unloading and distribution of industrial equipment produced at factories overseas and arriving by ship to the United States. Because of this, manufacturers were challenged to acquire OEM replacement rollers for their equipment.
While many industries are accustomed to regular roll recoveries, such as steel and aluminum processing and rolling plants, due to the current landscape, we have been helping and guiding more companies through the process of repairing their rollers instead of purchasing OEM replacements.
