When people call us to rent test equipment that is the first question we generally ask. Generally the answer is “Yesterday, but I will settle for tomorrow”, we laugh and then go about the business of making the magic that is equipment rental happen.
At Protec, we aren’t surprised by how often people needed equipment immediately – it’s all part of the business.
We receive calls daily for for everything from Doble F6150 Relay Testing System to Dranetz PowerXplorer PX5 Power Monitor to Square D by Schneider S33595 Secondary Injection Test Set.
Our customer base is varied. We work with service companies, plants and industrial sites, electrical contractors, OEMs, and a variety of other companies. Despite all of their differences, the challenge of managing inventory is universal and it raises many difficult questions. A few are:
• How much equipment can I afford to buy?
• Should I base my capital expenditures on past volume or future expectations?
• How do I ensure the equipment is maintained appropriately?
• What if the inventory I invest in is not utilized or if it becomes obsolete?
How you answer these questions and the direction you move towards can impact your position in the market and Protec can help you improve that position.
In our next blog we will talk about different approaches to answering the questions above, bu we are curious – how do you make decisions with respect to equipment sourcing?
