The best situation for start up and/or maintenance of your Desco system is to have a qualified member of our staff visit your location.

All field service is performed only on Desco Systems and must be confirmed by a prior written purchase order.

Labor charges will include our representative's time and food and are subject to change. The current charges can be verified with our Service Department. Charges for transportation, lodging, Visas, travel documents, spare parts, etc., are additional.

We encourage you to arrange and pay for local items directly. However, we can arrange to prepay and invoice you for these items. Please co-ordinate with our Service Department on the preferred method.

Expenses for extra hours and extra days can be avoided through control of delays beyond the control or anticipation of our company.

We assume that at the time of a field service call, the electrical and mechanical operation of the system to be worked on is in accordance with the original factory specification, including all guarding.

If the condition is found to the contrary, our representative will notify you. The responsibilities and consequences as a result of any changes are your company’s, thus, the possibility may arise that additional time and material expenses may be necessary to accomplish the original specific task. We will review the existing system and determine the feasibility and necessary direction suitable to the appointed work order. Should we choose not to perform any work due to the condition of the system or inability to mutually agree upon the direction of the work, all labor and expenses incurred to that point will be fully compensated by your company.

Our Field Service Policy Glossary is conveniently arranged in alphabetical order. Unless rescinded in writing, all of the work performed will be under these Terms and Conditions and in harmony with the current price schedule at the time the work is instituted.

We consider the field service acceptable and complete upon your affixed signature on our Service Work Order Form.

Thank you for working with us to install and/or service your Desco Engineered System.
