Siemens recently approached Freddy wanting to breathe new life into their trusty Mark 5 machine which has been in operation for 20 years!...What an achievement!
Although their machine has been absolutely great, it was looking a bit tired and showing its years of service and that’s where we stepped in…
The machine was assessed and tested in order to establish what would be required from the refurbishment. It was then stripped down to its basic components all of which were thoroughly inspected and replaced if required. The actual frame and tank were shot blasted (taken back to bare metal), tested for integrity and freshly powder coated.
Then the Freddy was ready to go back to one very happy customer!
Here at Freddy we are extremely proud of our refurbishment service. We just love to breathe new life into a Freddy that may be a little tired. We take a before and after photograph of each project so that we can enjoy seeing the difference the refurbishment has made.
The refurbishment process is a great option if your Freddy is still in good working order. It’s cost effective and promotes environmental awareness in steering away from a disposable society...so of course this was a perfect route to go down for a global company such as Siemens who also take great pride in being environmentally aware.
