Six days instead of six months delivery

MENZEL ELEKTROMOTOREN says its motor customers in the UK appreciate its fast delivery capability. Two of them recently contacted the company after experiencing motor failures, which meant that the water supply to 30,000 households was threatened and production in a cement plant was halted. After delivery times of only six and ten days, respectively, both the pump and the cement mill could be restarted in the shortest imaginable time. Faced with unexpected downtime due to equipment failures, customers often cannot afford to wait for a motor manufactured from scratch – standard delivery times in higher output ranges start at six months. Menzel says it has proven a strong partner in an emergency, quickly configuring suitable motor systems for a wide range of high-output applications.
