BIG KAISER Enhances In-House Repair Capabilities
Hoffman Estates, IL – BIG KAISER Precision Tooling is making dramatic improvements to BIG Profit Maker, BIG KAISER and Unilock repair services at its Illinois facility. These include bringing certain services in house that until recently had to be performed overseas, significant price reductions, eliminating charges for some commodity parts, and the addition of same-day services. Adjustments like these make it faster, more cost effective and easier to have mission-critical tooling repaired and maintained.
“Sending tools to us is much more convenient and cost effective for our customers,” Shawn Stevens, Repair Technician, said. “For example, BIG Daishowa Profit Maker tools like Angle Heads—if the unit’s crashed, broken, snapped or sheared off, we can fully fix it here now, and in one day if need be. You can pretty much tear the thing in half and it will be reparable. Plus, with the added cost-savings of our newly reduced repair costs, customers are spending less for the same service. Overall, it’s a great improvement.”
