Our Rebuild Process

ANALYZE
We search our inventory to see which equipment best fits your needs. Once determined, we decide what adjustments need to be made.

BREAKDOWN
Our team disassembles and examines the machine to ensure the integrity of every component, then determines what needs to be refurbished or replaced.

FABRICATE
Once the equipment is torn down to its frame, our dedicated, in-house fabrication team gets to work making and repairing components.

REASSEMBLE
We save you future costs by equipping your machine with standardized parts, as well as custom controls provided by our team of certified electricians.

TEST RUN
After reassembly, your machine passes a thorough inspection and is the test run with your product. Each machine comes with a limited warranty and manual for your convenience.
