The Flotec Objective:

To provide a more reliable value-added service provision and fit-for-purpose product offering compared to emergency mobile van hose replacement services.

Issues with mobile van service providers:

Mobile van hose replacement services will fit what they have in stock which is not always to the highest specification or suitable for rail applications. Mobile van services are costly in terms of their call out charges and amount of time to attend site where Flotec recommends a self-assembly solution.
