Have you ever heard the term “You can’t afford to be cheap”?
Some companies learn that lesson the hard way when it comes time to invest in automatic packaging or labeling equipment. Often, a company will decide to upgrade from their manual processes without having the financial means to do so. This limited budget forces a company to purchase imported equipment that constantly breaks down or doesn’t work from the beginning.
Don’t do it.
The continuous down time, service requests, part replacements and headaches can put your business into jeopardy. In the end, you have spent double the amount of money in making inexpensive equipment work when it should have just worked from the beginning.
Wouldn’t it be nice to receive well manufactured equipment that requires little maintenance from the get-go?
Yes, quality equipment of course costs more money and you may have to wait a little longer to receive well-built machinery. But now you can concentrate to grow your business knowing you purchases reliability, support, service, uptime and precision. You come home relaxed and not frustrated with dirty hand because you had to fix equipment. You can think about your business plan and not about what kind of tool you need.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”
