SLA / Support Packages
Baldwin & Francis supply solution equipment to areas where even a relatively minor failure can cause significant cost and disruption. We build to a very high standard and design the reliability needed to meet your requirements. However, as with any product, regular servicing is essential to optimise efficiency and to ensure long lifetimes.
Baldwin & Francis offer different levels of support package designed to minimise the risk of failure and to suit your needs. B&F’s service packages for all our products are designed to support the equipment right through the life of the asset. This includes two planned maintenance visits per year with a full report including notice of any parts obsolescence.
