We Understand The Stresses You Are Under:

• You have the tremendous responsibility to improve your processes and increase equipment up time; yet continue to reduce costs.

• You must be overly cautious, having been burned by pushy vendors recommending the wrong material for your unique application(s). With your best interests in mind, we will never cause you to look foolish to your co-workers.

• You must make sound decisions; and deliver results so you look like a hero for fixing issues they have struggled with for decades.

• Selecting wear resistant steel should never be a gamble. It must be strategic and well thought out. At the same time you are expected to elevate your capabilities to the next level.

• You don’t have to be a wear plate expert; you just need to know who to call for the right answers when your next problem pops up. Never take unnecessary risks by trusting untrained hard sell vendors, who just push you to buy the lowest priced option in standard size plate.

Together we can strategically:

• Identify repeated wear issues, so we both can look at your challenge with new eyes to recognize the root cause(s) of your wear instead of continuing to treat the symptoms. It is seldom one big thing, or you would have rectified that long ago. It is often 2 or 3 minor issues that gang up to cause a major headache.

• Together we can evaluate your existing performance data on your current and previously material results. This review will allow us to spot trends to better determine and avoid potential pitfalls.

• Review alternate material options other than what you have previously utilized.

• Co-workers are often reluctant to change from a long time accepted process. We can assist with application education for decision makers and the production team by sharing results from similar functions.
