Four Reasons You Should Consider Refurbishing Rather Than Replacing
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Reduce, reuse, recycle isn’t just a great green slogan, it’s also an excellent strategy to adopt when considering how best to keep your plant operational without resorting to a complexly new fit out. Fierce competition in industry means that overheads need to be kept low in order to product products at a price your customers can’t say no to. An increasing number of companies are opting to refurbish their machinery rather than replace it with fresh equipment. If you’re considering this option, find out below four key reasons why it makes sense.

More cost-effective

Almost invariably it costs less for refurbishing then it does to completely replace an ageing system. Particularly for basic manufacturing tasks, the equipment needed has changed relatively little over the past few decades, meaning there are normally few production advantages to be obtained by using newer versions of what your company already has. If there is a concern that a component isn’t working as well as it should, or perhaps requires modernisation, skilful refurbishing can often achieve the desired improvements without the need for excessive financial outlay.

Minimise disruption

A costly refit will require production to stop for a considerable period of time. Not only does the old plant have to be carefully dismantled and disposed of, the new equipment needs to be installed and then tested to ensure it’s working correctly before production can recommence. Inevitably this leads to diminished outlay and may even present difficulty in filling customer orders if the refitting process runs over schedule. Refurbishment can frequently be carried out in a piecemeal manner, optimising the use of scheduled down time in the production cycle to get the work done.

Saves time

Fitting new plant requires an enormous investment of time to ensure that the project is undertaken in the most advantageous way. If senior managers are busy building a complex specification and brief, visiting potential providers and negotiating in order to obtain the best deal, they’re not going to be paying as much attention to core business. Using a skilled external agency to undertake the refurbishment work that’s needed frees up management to do what they do best – ensure the achievement of your company’s targets and strategic objectives.

Keeps an obsolete system going for longer

Thanks to excellent engineering standards in previous decades, many items of plant can operate effectively for years. Whilst they can do an excellent job whilst operational, changing construction techniques and different designs may mean that the parts necessary to effect a repair or replacement may no longer be available in the contemporary market. Luckily specialist refurbishment can keep outdated plant working effectively, prolonging its life. Refurbishment is a less invasive way of achieving positive change in machine quality and function. It makes life easier for workers (no new systems or processes to get to grips with) and managers (enabling them to concentrate on core duties), providing a viable alternative to new equipment whilst frequently produces enviable results. That why you should consider refurbishing rather than replacing.
