Industrial process equipment represents a major investment for any company, but vital to the working of every manufacturing facility. Specialty solids processing equipment and tool process equipment parts add to the costs as well. Technological improvements in industrial processing machinery often makes industrial processing equipment obsolete before you even pay for it. But if you don’t continually invest in process equipment, you may lose a competitive edge.
While you may have a long-standing relationship with an industrial process equipment company, you should consider other sources to both save resources and stay abreast of improvements. Your industrial process equipment suppliers typically are not as motivated as outside process equipment dealers in offering deals and innovative new industrial process equipment.
1. Find an overseas logistics firm to build relationships with global process equipment dealers
2. Purchase used industrial equipment
3. Lease newer industrial processing equipment
Explore opportunities from global industrial process equipment companiesContact an overseas logistics company to tap into new and emerging markets. By enlisting the assistance of an industrial process equipment logistics operation, you can build relationships with process equipment dealers that could take you years to develop. Through a good global connection, you can get your process equipment directly from industrial process equipment suppliers overseas.
Consider purchasing used industrial processing machineryTo save on precious resources, especially when you are starting out, you may want to buy used industrial equipment. Used process equipment dealers will refurbish and install their machinery and offer limited warranties on the used industrial equipment. As industrial process equipment companies continue to improve their products, there is a good inventory of used industrial processing machinery available.
Hold on to your resources and preserve your credit with leased industrial processing machineryLeasing is often the best option for large industrial processing machinery purchases. Credit is easier to get from leasing companies and the lease does not affect your bottom line. Options are available on the monthly payments, upgrades and buyouts; allowing you to customize the terms of your industrial processing equipment needs.
- Advise your current industrial process equipment suppliers that you want to be informed about any emerging technology if you don't want to go through the process of finding a new distributor. Make sure they understand that you are willing to look elsewhere if they don't deliver some good deals too.
