January 2016 Newsletter

Welcome to our January 2016 Newsletter

Welcome to 2016, the year we celebrate our 27th year in business. As we enter the New Year, we take pause once again to acknowledge the faithfulness of our God in preserving us as a business. We recognize that we are only instruments in His hand and that Speed Wrench is only a small part of His Greater Purpose. Knowing what that purpose is, we must daily seek the will of the Almighty to give us direction. We pray for the wisdom to follow where He leads.

We are now settled in after our building expansion last year and have been focused on fine tuning business. We are constantly asking you, our customers, “Where can we improve?” Your feedback is greatly appreciated and is used to bring forward the best products and services possible. Thank you for your continued patronage.

Our project this year is a total upgrade to our point of sale software. In the past four months we have been researching software for the entire company. We have outgrown our old system both in size and diversity and need to upgrade to stay up with ever changing technologies and business opportunities. We are finishing up the vetting process and hope to begin changing things over starting this month. To keep from disrupting daily business, we have decided to phase this program in over the next 6-8 months. We will bring you an update in our July Newsletter.

Thank you & have a blessed New Year,

~ The Management

“Our service makes the difference” – and it shows lately.  We have experienced a recent surge in our cylinder repair business in the last couple months.

Though we can manufacture brand new hydraulic cylinders of all sizes and applications, it is often the most cost effective solution to simply repair your existing broken cylinder.  We clean and rebuild cylinders and hydraulic power units to a “like-new” condition.  We can pickup, deliver, and provide a customized solution to meet your unique needs.  Call us with you hydraulic challenges.  616-669-3975

January 2010 Newsletter

Welcome to Our January 2010 Newsletter

Welcome to the New Year 2010! It seems like yesterday that we began a new century. Remember the Y2K scare? Now here we are with yet another decade behind us and the Lord continues to supply our needs with work every day. Truly He has been good to us as a Company and we must acknowledge this every day. May we be good stewards of everything that He entrusts to us and may our work always be for His glory and honor in this world.
Looking back at the January ‘07 and ‘08 Newsletter, it was stated that the previous year had been challenging. 2009 was no different. With the economic downturn of late 2008 and into 2009, most businesses have experienced a slowdown in work. To counteract this at Speed Wrench, we have not only expanded our service offerings but also implemented some new programs geared to reducing customers maintenance cost. We pride ourselves in not just repairing equipment but partnering with our customers to look for new and innovative ways of containing these costs. We look forward to continuing our relationship with our customers in the years to come. Thank You!

From All Phase Hydraulics

“Custom”er Service

As we often point out here at All Phase Hydraulics & Machine, LLC, “It’s our service that makes the difference”. Recently a customer called us and informed us that they had bought a new “used” machine and they wanted us to go through and quote each of the machine’s 12 cylinders for repair. Upon inspection, we found that the cylinders were not repairable. We ended up manufacturing 13 new cylinders to specifications, cleaning and rebuilding the hydraulic power unit, and going onsite to the customer’s location to plumb the entire machine and to install the new cylinders. This is definitely not what the customer originally had in mind when they had purchased this used machine, but we delivered a customized solution to meet their unique needs. Call us with your hydraulic challenges! (616) 669-3975.
