Hörmann UK doubles service engineer headcount

Hörmann UK doubles service engineer headcount

Hörmann UK has doubled its team of service engineers over the last year, to help ensure both clients and non-clients across the UK are offered the highest standard of servicing, in the shortest time possible.

Machine downtime can cost a business up to £500,000* each year, an amount that can significantly impact a company’s overall success and turnover. As a result, it’s crucial for businesses, particularly those in logistics, to ensure their loading bays are in operation and safe working condition at all times.

To achieve this, the equipment must be supported with regular servicing from trained and qualified engineers who can ensure the systems have not been installed or used incorrectly.

Hörmann UK’s team of qualified engineers work above the industry standard of servicing by comprehensively analysing 30-40 different areas and components as part of the service to ensure each area of the loading bay is functioning safely and correctly. Following these checks, they also provide a list of recommendations or improvements required to help customers increase the functionality of their systems.

Hörmann UK’s trained service engineers are also available to offer recommendations on systems that can be put in place to reduce accidents, such as radar sensor and vehicle alignment guides that help reduce risks to health and safety of workers on site.
