Foodmate US produces OEM parts, offers asset integrity program
Foodmate US Parts Department offers a large inventory of original Foodmate parts, as well as other OEM parts.
Knowing that downtime is lost money in poultry processing, Foodmate’s parts department works quickly to fill orders. Most orders are shipped on the same day they are received.
“We know that OEM parts equal results,” said Chris Blodgett, Foodmate US Warehouse Manager. “We have OEM parts readily available so that you experience little or no downtime. We keep an extensive inventory of parts and equipment stocked and ready to expedite for immediate shipment.”
Foodmate’s ability to meet its customers’ parts needs quickly works well with its Asset Integrity Program (AIP). The program consists of a contractual service agreement with a customer, with the objective to complete a set number of service visits and rebuilds in a defined period of time on specific pieces of equipment.
The parameters of the contract are set to best suit each particular plant’s need, according to its equipment and capacity.
The program implements pre-scheduled quarterly rebuilds (parts/labor), and monthly visits with a designated Customer Asset Manager (CAM). The company believes this program will prove to protect customers’ assets while improving on performance and yield management in the long run. In addition, the AIP offers additional training for plant personnel, which reinforces continuous improvement in equipment performance.
