Electro-mechanical services minimise operating costs

Electro-mechanical services minimise operating costs
It is a skilled task to maintain the reliability of generators and large motors, and one that is central to the productivity of many industries. Most large businesses using this specialist equipment have to choose between engaging a number of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or selecting an independent service provider (ISP). The outcome of this decision can affect running costs as well as the efficiency and productivity of the company.
