Preventative Maintenance

For companies, who want to keep their line technicians focused on productivity, our PM Program is a proven alternative that provides a transparent solution that is more reliable and cost effective than in-house approaches. Pump manufacturers often have little or no experience outside their own product lines, and would prefer to only sell new pumps. FMG has repaired and provided support for virtually every OEM pump producer since 1987. We also specialize in supporting major semiconductor manufacturers.

FMG’s PM Program was designed by experienced tool managers because we understand the frustration and pain of dealing with a down production line. FMG can provide Certified technicians to handle all your vacuum pump and peripheral repair service requests to help keep you up and running.

Through our customer management maintenance system (CMMS) and tracking programs, we are able to archive customer pump histories for many years. This unique database management system enables FMG to provide custom reporting on pump failures and develop ideal preventive maintenance schedules.

Improve your uptime by selecting FMG as your outsourcing partner.

  • Scheduled interval preventative maintenance
