Horner Team Effort On Substation

A manufacturer of insulation and commercial roofing, along with glass fibers and nonwovens recently had a project to rebuild their glass melter and scheduled to have the plant completely shut down for 60 days.

For the 3 months leading up to the outage, we met weekly (either in person or conference call/TEAMS meeting) and agreed/planned to have [...]

The customer was buying new sets of barrels/tubes, rods, and pistons at the manufactures price getting very expensive. This is where our Hydraulic Cylinder Repair shop comes into play. They were able to repair the rods and piston assemblies [...]
