In today’s fast-paced world, the efficiency and reliability of your elevators are more crucial than ever. However, the current supply chain challenges can turn a simple part replacement into a prolonged ordeal. That’s where McDonough Elevators steps in with a solution that is not only time-efficient but also cost-effective: refurbishment packages. Let’s delve into why choosing a refurbishment package from McDonough could be the best decision for your elevator maintenance needs.
The Challenge of Supply Chain Delays
Extended downtime for elevators isn’t just an inconvenience; it can significantly disrupt your operations. The wait for critical parts from overseas manufacturers only adds to the frustration, accompanied by high shipping costs and extended repair delays.
The McDonough Advantage: American-Made Parts
McDonough offers a practical and efficient solution with our inventory of American-made, after-market parts. By sourcing parts locally in the U.S., we dramatically reduce the wait times and shipping costs associated with overseas suppliers. Our approach ensures that your rack and pinion elevator remains operational with minimal downtime.
Retrofitting for Efficiency
We don’t just supply parts; we offer complete solutions. Using our locally sourced inventory, we can retrofit your existing elevator with our new American-made SmartRack control system. This move away from proprietary OEM parts reduces the risk of costly downtimes and provides a seamless, efficient operation.
Refurbishment Over Replacement?
Our refurbishment and car replacement packages present a compelling alternative to outright replacement of your rack and pinion elevators, including brands like Alimak, GEDA, and STROS. Refurbishments are not just a band-aid but a comprehensive overhaul that addresses issues like excessive downtime, costly repairs, unsafe conditions, and obsolete parts.
Advantages of Modernization and Refurbishments with McDonough:
  1. Cost Savings: Refurbishing with McDonough can save customers 30% or more compared to the cost of complete elevator system replacement. This significant cost reduction makes refurbishment an attractive proposition for businesses looking to optimize their budget.
  2. Quick Turnaround: Manufacturing a new elevator system can take up to 8 to 12+ months, often time longer. In contrast, McDonough can perform a complete elevator refurbishment in just 6-8 weeks, drastically reducing wait time and getting your operations back on track sooner.
  3. Temporary Solutions: To ensure that your operations are not hampered during the refurbishment process, McDonough offers temporary elevators for use while your elevator is being modernized. This means uninterrupted service for your team and clients.
Conclusion: A Partnership for Success
Choosing McDonough for your elevator refurbishments means partnering with a team committed to quality, efficiency, and safety. Our focus on using locally sourced, American-made parts ensures a quick response to service calls and regular equipment performance reviews. With McDonough, you’re not just upgrading your elevator; you’re investing in a partnership that values your time and resources.
