  • Contributes positively to the reputation of companies

Profits Advantages of Preventive Maintenance

Preventive maintenance doesn’t just enhance the lifespan of regularly used equipment, it enables higher performance. Well maintained equipment performs better than poorly maintained equipment. Companies that take the time to maintain their equipment on a regular schedule typically get the best performance possible out of their equipment.

The performance of company equipment is often intimately related to profits. Many companies rely heavily on their equipment, and the more efficiently and smoothly their equipment performs, the more profit they can make. While it is true that in the short run companies that do not spend time maintaining their equipment well can make more money, in the long run their equipment will end up performing more poorly, and they will end up losing a great deal of money.

Preventive maintenance doesn’t just increase what managers can get out of equipment, it also makes it possible for managers to save money on power costs. Equipment that is poorly maintained typically requires more electricity or fuel to run.
