Cost Up Front Versus Cost Over Time

When it comes to any type of machinery or equipment that has moving parts, be it a car, a refrigerator, a tractor, even a television, you’re going to incur costs. The question, especially if we’re talking about equipment that helps you run your business, is not one of if you will pay. Rather, the question is when you will pay. At RMS Roller Grinder, we refer to this as cost up front versus cost over time. You’ll pay to ensure you have top quality equipment that is simple and easy to maintain, or you’ll pay for lower quality equipment and end up having to spend the money out over time, each time the equipment breaks down. 

Now, obviously, many more factors come into play when discussing machinery for your business. Particularly in the food product business, you want machinery that gets you the perfect grind, that eliminates debris and foreign objects, that you can set up once and walk away from, trusting your product will be perfect when you return. At RMS we provide the equipment that meets all of those needs and more. But, beyond all of the fine details of industry specific machinery for rolling and grinding your grains, your coffee, your pet food, or for your brewing and your distilling of a variety of products, you just want a machine you can rely on.

That’s where cost up front comes in to play, because the truth of the matter is, you are going to pay in the end, one way or another. At RMS, we pride ourselves on providing our clients with expertly designed and built equipment that will not break down on you. We are so sure of our engineering that we offer regular maintenance and servicing visits for a small fee to all of our clients, just to keep everything like the day you bought it. It is not the lowest priced equipment on the market, and we’re here to tell you that’s a good thing. Our machines are designed and built by Americans in America, the traditional, durable, American way, and that level of quality comes with a price our clients are happy to pay. The lowest priced equipment on the market is cheap for a reason. It will not only break down on you, leaving you with costly repairs to make, but it will break down when you least expect, in the middle of production, taking even more of your hard earned money by way of time and labor. 

So, in the end, it comes down to when you want to spend the money, up front for top quality or over the years on breakdown after frustrating breakdown. Our money, and our reputation, is on cost up front. We back our machines, so our machines can back you.

Why Maintenance Matters

Set it and forget it seems to be the name of the game these days. Once you buy a product, usually beyond 30 days, maybe a year if you’re lucky, it’s yours to deal with. Many companies don’t even offer warranties on their machines. Those that do seem to try to avoid honoring them. It wasn’t always this way. There are still those of us who remember when American made meant something. When a person could expect to buy something designed and built in this country to last and last. RMS Roller Grinder is reclaiming those days, that spirit. We believe in the quality and durability of our product. In fact, we believe in it so strongly that we also promote regular maintenance through our service technicians. 

You see, just like a car, a house, or even the human body, for that matter, heavy machinery needs regular maintenance so it doesn’t need constant and costly repair. You would never go years without an oil change on your car. You know you need regular checkups, blood tests, and more with your doctor. You know that you need to maintain anything that you expect to run and last. The same thing can, and must, be said for your roller grinder equipment. The truth is, if you maintain well made equipment on a regular schedule, it can run practically forever, saving you hundreds of dollars in costly repairs and replacements over the years. It will also save you the time and energy of having to buy new equipment or deal with a machine out of service when it breaks down. At RMS, we value your time and energy, and we want you to be able to keep it focused on running your business, not running out to find a repairman. 

RMS recruits, hires, and trains the best service technicians in heavy machinery precisely so we can offer regular, routine maintenance on any machinery you buy from us, new or used. In fact, we are so proud of our equipment and our service techs that we do offer used equipment, because you cannot go wrong with machines built to last and well cared for over their lifetime. And that, friend, is why maintenance matters. When your machine is at its peak performance, you get the best food product to offer your clients. And when your clients are happy, you’re happy. And when you’re happy, we’ve done our job.
