A tec Field Service Teams—comprised of FSRs, engineers, technicians, and logisticians at Atec, Vital Link and Celtech—are deployed worldwide to support and repair test systems and hush houses for the US military and NASA.

Our IDIQ contracts extend lifespans for legacy equipment and prioritize timely maintenance and repairs of our customers’ engine fleets.

24/7 Hotline

Our 24/7 Hotline is a toll-free number that Maintainers and Operators call for urgent support with problems and questions in the field. It is a proven, closed-loop, follow-up assured, manned data-collecting process for dealing with urgent customer inquiries. When a call comes in, the caller is patched real time to our live Field Service Representatives. We also have additional engineers and technical support staff that can assist the FSRs with unique problems. A good percentage of Hotline calls are solved over the phone, but if additional help is needed, a PWS is opened stating the specific work and schedule that needs to be completed. Our FSR’s are often retired/ex military and are very familiar with the equipment, needs, and the IDIQ contracts. Many calls have led to equipment being shipped to Atec, Celtech or Vital Link for repairs, or site visits by our field teams where additional problems are often discovered and addressed. Since the Hotline’s inception, we have received, responded, and resolved hundreds of issues. Call us with your urgent engine test problem.
