    • Designing and buying equipment systems based on safety
    • Proactively maintaining and inspecting equipment to strict safety standards and compliance
    • Training facility staff to make sure equipment is operating safely and in compliance at all times
    • Avoiding costly and disruptive downtime by ensuring that equipment is reliable and in perfect running condition at all times
    • Achieving top performance during high-usage cycles is critical, as is ensuring reliability and consistent performance after long idle periods
    • Choosing equipment systems that perform in industrial manufacturing facilities with even the most challenging environments
    • Selecting the right equipment that optimizes upfront purchase cost, annual maintenance expenses and overall asset lifecycle
    • Having a reliable service partner with replacement parts stocked and available on demand for cost savings and same-day service
    • Designing and maintaining the right system with the right service partner to maximize equipment and employee productivity and efficiencies
    • Preventing the gear case, electrical and hoist gear failures that frequently cause equipment to shut down or operate with limitations
    • Eliminating the excessive wear that causes cracks in the hook/shank and bottom block that lead to potential operational and safety issues
    • Addressing the daily issue of wire rope wear through inspections and replacement to ensure that equipment systems are operating safely and efficiently
    • Service providers whose employees are not trained or whose company is not focused on equipment and workplace safety, facility and equipment uptime, and total costs of equipment ownership
    • Service technicians who lack the necessary technical expertise or whose company does not have parts available so they can fix the equipment right the first time and on the same day
    • Slow response times and lack of 24/7/365 service availability and two-hour emergency service that ensure that production is not shut down or safety compromised
    • Poor communication, no confirmation of arrival time, poor service diagnostics, and inaccurate cost estimates vs. actual service bills
