Factory repairs can be conducted at Atec’s factory in SW Houston (Stafford) TX, Hager’s shop in North Houston TX, Vital Link’s campus in Sealy TX, Celtech’s plant in Carlsbad NM and VLE’s shop near London, UK. Our field service representatives are equipped and ready to meet your servicing needs worldwide, and have the full consultation of our 100+ engineers at our manufacture plants.  Initial phone consultation with our technicians can provide telephone troubleshooting, as well as guidance on any evaluation of the equipment needing repairs.  Where pre-repair evaluations are conducted, repairs are not undertaken until evaluations are transmitted to our clients, repair options priced and approved client instructions are received.

Equipment that is repaired at Atec, Celtech, Vital Link and Hager facilities follows the following ISO9001 process:

  1. Purchase order is received from the Customer initiating equipment evaluation.
  2. Equipment is received and inspected for shipping damage.  A receiving inspection report is generated and the equipment is tagged as Customer Owned Material.
  3. The equipment is evaluated against the standard Acceptance Test Procedures used on new equipment.  All deviations are noted and an Evaluation Report is generated along with the recommended repair process and materials.
  4. The repair is quoted to the customer to allow for a cost analysis to be performed.
  5. If the repair is approved, the equipment is moved to a Production Work Order and the repair process flows through the same process as current production work.
  6. Once the repair is complete, the item is tested per the Acceptance Test Procedure and inspected by the Quality Assurance Department.  Final Repair Reports are generated and the repaired item is shipped back to the customer.
