This seminar will discuss how to create a proactive maintenance program for your overhead, pedestrian door, loading dock and other equipment. By enrolling in a preventative maintenance program, you can save thousands of dollars on unexpected repairs and avoid costly downtime while increasing the life span of the equipment. Join us to learn how your facility can save money and help accurately forecast your annual budget while providing a safer environment for employees and customers.  Overhead doors are usually one of the largest and heaviest pieces of equipment within a facility. It is imperative that this type of equipment undergoes annual, semi-annual or quarterly maintenance to increase safety and productivity.

By attending this seminar, participants will learn about:

  • Annual maintenance budgets through proactive maintenance and repairs
  • Increasing the overall safety of your facility by decreasing equipment related accidents
  • Maximizing the life cycle of your equipment
  • Minimizing downtime & service calls; 24/7 priority callouts and an additional discount on labor and materials
  • Stability and Continuity of a multi-year service agreement.
