John Shuff, Shop Coordinator for Airhydropower Inc. explains how Hercules On Demand program helped solve a major problem:
“I’m writing today to let you know what a great resource the Hercules Seals On Demand has been for us. We had a job recently where their ability to produce non-catalogued items saved us and our customer major downtime and cost. Two large telescopic cylinders came in for a time sensitive repair an upon disassembly we found that the manufacturer decided to use completely arbitrary rod sizes in these items. With no idea who made the cylinders and time becoming major factor, we contacted Ken with the seal profiles, material and sizes for nine different items. They were at our door on the UPS truck the next day, fit and operated perfectly.”
