Bulbeck EnviroSolutions has provided Newcastle Diesel Specialist Services with cleaning equipment solutions that has saved the company with labour time and costs. Owner of the Newcastle Diesel Specialist Services, Craig Palmer, explains how small businesses have keep up with multi-national service companies by working smarter and invest in equipment that reduces labour while improving product quality.
“We risk being over-run by multi-national and large corporate workshops unless we are able to turn our disadvantage of small size into an advantage – absolute quality control that can only be achieved in a small, tight business,” says Palmer.
“Even though we can match them on quality, to compete we just have to be efficient in the extreme.” Newcastle Diesel Specialist and Services were introduce to Bulbeck’s F07 micro filtered solvent based cleaning machine, to help assist the cleaning and maintenance of diesel fuel pumps, injectors and turbochargers.
“Straight away it was saving us around two hours a week. When we combined it with the new wet bead blaster, typical component cleaning times decreased by 300%. Two hour jobs were being done in 30 minutes,” says Palmer.
Impressed by the efficient results, Palmer has signed Newcastle Diesel Specialist and Services into a maintenance contract with Bulbeck EnviroSolutions.
“Most workshops would put these things in and not look at them again for two years. We sat down with the Bulbeck people and worked out a rotating 12 weeks maintenance program to guarantee that filters are at optimal efficiency and the solvent always pure,” says Palmer.
“Having Bulbeck’s as a supplier is actually one of our advantages. They are right here, a phone call away. Their locally developed filtered solvent cleaner is a market leader and the whole package is under an affordable rental arrangement – all factors that help boost our competitive advantage.”
