JBT has introduced a free-of-charge Hygienic Piping System Provider Buyers Guide, which aims to walk customers and non-customers alike through the process of acquiring new solutions with the focus on avoiding all-too-common pitfalls. The guide, The Top 10 Questions To Ask When Choosing a Hygienic Piping System Installation Provider, will discuss the key questions and factors that need to be considered before making a decision.
Buck Evers, Director of Field Services at JBT’s A&B Process Systems, says the guide was put together to give companies a valuable resource before and during the decision making process, outlining steps that should be taken and hazards that must be avoided. “The guide is designed to help companies in making the buying decisions because it looks at the process from a customer’s perspective, outlining the questions they need to ask to make a decision,” he explains.
“If you only look at price and don’t consider other factors, you could end up with a supplier that doesn’t have the experience, the certifications or the safety performance to execute a job or hit the budget,” Evers continues. “The total cost of selecting a low price could be higher because companies can end up paying through accidents or having to change orders during the project. Poor quality can also have repercussions later where companies are forced to make corrections because the suppliers weren’t skilled enough.”
From a JBT perspective, Evers says that one of JBT’s key strengths is that the company provides ongoing support during the lifetime of the system or machinery, ensuring piece-of-mind should mishaps occur. “Supporting customers long-term through JBT’s customer care program means we can stand behind them,” he adds.
