Don’t Replace – Remanufacture or Repair Equipment with French Gerleman

Broken equipment? Before you panic, before you buy new, consider remanufacturing or repairing instead of replacing! At French Gerleman, we offer cost saving remanufacturing services on Allen-Bradley equipment and repair service on thousands of other manufacture’s parts. Whether it’s AC/DC drives, PLCs, servo motors and drives, or robots and controllers, we are your single source for repairs.

There are times where it makes more financial sense to repair broken or worn down equipment than replace, especially when the repairs come with the same or better warranty than a new part.  French Gerleman is here to help save you the expense of a total replacement by repairing your used equipment, or returning it to a like new condition with remanufacturing services.

For Allen-Bradley products, Rockwell Automation follows a strict seven step process in their 10 global ISO certified remanufacturing facilities on every part they receive. They are the only repair facilities who can upgrade your Allen-Bradley equipment to the latest proprietary revisions and enhancements to bring it up to original equipment manufacturer specifications.  Any failed or marginal components are replaced with only the engineered specified parts, no substitutions.  Their dynamic and environmental testing goes above and beyond to weed out any intermittent failures. They treat every product and part as a new one, running them through the same tests as newly assembled products.

Repair services are available for more than 200,000 items from over 7,000 manufacturers. With the acquisition of Lektronix, a leader in the repair industry, Rockwell Automation incorporates techniques used in the remanufacturing process to support the quality repairs.  With repairs performed in their ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified facilities using advanced automated testing, we provide your parts back with a one year warranty on the entire assembly. The best part? You save money and your maintenance personnel can tackle higher priorities.

Rockwell Automation has more than $100 million in inventory, including more than 50,000 catalog items in their warehouse in Memphis, TN. It typically takes 7-10 business days to repair once it is received in their facility, but a customer can ask for and receive a repair part in 3-5 days on average which includes an extended 18 month warranty. Need a part in a hurry? Rockwell offers priority next day exchange that includes a 24 month warranty.

List price to list price, you can save about 50% on average when repairing over buying a new part. That’s a lot of money your business will be saving!
