Planned maintenance is much cheaper than unplanned
Siwertell equipment is recognized worldwide for reliability and long service life. Contracting Siwertell to service and maintain your equipment ensures that it always meets the latest performance and safety standards and delivers maximum efficiency.
When you have a proactive approach to maintenance you will have fewer breakdowns. Service labor and spare parts can be planned well ahead of critical replacement dates, reducing costs. Wear and tear can be attended to in a timely manner instead of leading to breakdowns.
Most operators value effective maintenance programs and a growing number are taking advantage of the benefits offered by planned maintenance contracts. Siwertell offers these as Siwertell CARE agreements.
