National contractor, Kolb Grading, sought out a new solution to deal with its hydraulic hose repair needs. Kolb Grading offers end-to-end site preparation, utility infrastructure installation and environmental remediation services for its customers and was experiencing high costs associated with emergency hydraulic hose replacement, including service fees, downtime hours and material costs.
Superior Industrial Supply completed a thorough evaluation of Kolb Grading’s business needs and recommended an onsite hose fabrication system from Eaton Weatherhead as well as travelling container boxes for service trucks. This option allows Kolb Grading to fabricate hoses as needed in-house and in the field.
“The greater our machine uptime, the more money we’re able to put in the business,” shared Chris Wunderlich, Parts Manager at Kolb Grading. “The Superior team has been great to deal with,” added Wunderlich. “Flexible and attentive to our needs, never overreaching, they make sure we have exactly what we need for operations. They’re a good partner to work with.”
