Equipment & Machinery Repair Services

Overview

The 19,800 equipment and machinery repair services in the US are primarily engaged in restoring commercial and industrial equipment and machinery to working order. Firms also provide general and routine maintenance services to keep equipment operating efficiently and to prevent breakdowns and unnecessary repairs. The industry does not include automotive, electronic, or precision equipment repair services.

Competition from Manufacturers and Wholesalers

Both equipment manufacturers and wholesalers often view maintenance services as an attractive source of additional revenue and a way to maintain close relationships with customers.

Keeping Up with Technology Advances

As manufacturers introduce new types of machines and new models of existing products, repair services must quickly come up to speed on how to repair and service them effectively and efficiently.
