Remote or restricted-access jobsites typically found in mining, construction, forestry, and oil & gas exploration and production, as well as airports and shipping ports, find that downtime can become a particularly expensive occurrence. Fast-turn hydraulic equipment repair and preventive maintenance is critical to maintaining system uptime and production throughput.
To maximize productivity and eliminate the downtime associated with traveling to an off-site provider, ParkerStore has a resource that brings all the repair components and tooling needed right to your site. Through the ParkerStore™ Onsite program, we deliver a fully stocked hydraulic workshop right to your jobsite. These highly efficient, pre-planned and pre-stocked workshops provide all the equipment, technology and inventory needed for on-location fabrication of hose and tube assemblies, filter components and much more.
The program is specifically designed to support customers that have limited access to critical replacement parts due to physical (e.g., an outlying mine) or logistical (e.g., a busy airport) worksite constraints. When a new hose or tube assembly must be fabricated immediately to keep essential equipment up-and-running, you can make it immediately in the ParkerStore Onsite container.
