Select FS SOLUTIONS CENTERS Now Offer StoneAge Service And Repairs
ELGIN, ILL. (Oct. 29, 2008) – To better serve industrial cleaning contractors, plant customers and other industry professionals, Federal Signal Environmental Solutions Group has announced that the FS Solutions centers in Toledo, Ohio and Long Beach, Calif., are authorized repair and service centers for StoneAge brand waterblasting and sewer cleaning tools, parts and accessories.
"At FS Solutions, we are proud to offer the kind of dependable products, parts and services – like the StoneAge line of waterblast tools – that our customers need to get the job done," said Bryce Mulligan, rental manager for FS Solutions. "We are also proud that the technicians at our Toledo and Long Beach centers have the training and expertise to repair and rebuild StoneAge products locally, rather than requiring customers to rely solely on the StoneAge service location in Durango, Colorado."
"There are physics behind how you make a water-spin tool and how you jet it," said Bill Shires, vice president of sales and marketing for StoneAge. "The technical sales specialists at FS Solutions have been fully trained by StoneAge engineers and are uniquely suited to answer customer questions about which StoneAge tools to use to remove specific materials in specific applications. FS Solutions also has the necessary machining expertise and tooling capabilities to repair our high tolerance tool components."
StoneAge products include the Hurricane® 3D vessel and tank cleaning tool, the Barracuda® 20,000 and 40,000 psi rotary nozzles and Warthog® sewer cleaning tools. "We are committed to building great tools," Shires said. “The location of the StoneAge factory is far from our customers’ job sites. Having authorized repair locations minimizes shipping costs and time for everyone. We want our tools back in the operator’s hands with the least amount of downtime as possible."
