“Dean works with our customers to schedule preventive maintenance for equipment, schedules the technicians to jobs, and is a lifeline to our service technicians with questions they might have while out in the field,” Fisher said. “By having this process put into place on how things should run, we are able to all know what our tasks are, and we are able to successfully help out our customers.”

CompressAir’s service technicians are out in the community every day, performing preventive and emergency maintenance to customers in a variety of industries. No matter the type of repair, the skilled service technicians work hard to maintain the health of their client’s compressed air systems.

“Each of our service managers and technicians stays up to date on their Sullair Training and other major equipment competitors,” Fisher said.

They focus as much on education as in fixing problems.

“Our service department stresses that preventive maintenance helps equipment last longer,” Fisher said. “We want to be able to help our customers when an issue arises and before it is too late. By providing regular maintenance services, we are able to always keep tabs on how the equipment is running and are able to notice when there are major changes or issues to prevent more severe breakdown and downtimes in the future.”

“Keeping up with your preventive maintenance also helps to avoid emergencies. When emergencies happen and your equipment is down, that means you are also fighting the fact that you are unable to produce your product since air is needed in the production line,” she added.
