Alyssa Stanton: You call us, we’re going to answer. We’re going to get out there as soon as we can. We have a team that’s able to go and you know disconnect the motor, take the motor from the manufacturers to our shop where they fix the motor, then we can take it back and reinstall it. So we’re like a full-fledged package for motor repair.

Chris Parkerson: When we find failures we don’t just repair, we give a root cause or at least try to give a root cause failure analysis on everything so you know what the failure mode is so that you can address the root cause of the problem and not just the something. We also have a Technical Field Service group which does a lot of the troubleshooting, we’re an extension of a lot of our customers maintenance team if you will. We also have predictive maintenance analysis from motion amplification, to vibration analytics, to motor circuit analysis. We have an electrical contracting division where we can do everything from greenfield projects, building new plants, or to doing plan expansions.
