Oil Refinery Downtime Crisis Averted Thanks to RUSH Circuit Board Repairs

“We are thisclose to a potential shutdown if we don’t get this mission-critical circuit board repaired immediately!” said the “Ginormous Oil” Company plant manager, in a panicy phone call to our customer service rep.

Their Gulf of Mexico oil refinery was in danger of experiencing a shutdown that could cost them close to $1 million – per DAY! The cause? Just a single, damaged legacy circuit board. And, there was only one backup board in existence… anywhere! Could ACS repair it, they asked? In 24 hours or less? While they waited? Yes indeed! We can, and did! That was a Yes to all three questions!

Due to the two-of-kind critical nature of the board and the daily loss potential, “Ginormous Oil” company put a key man on board a jet with the circuit board in his personal possession. His mission: get it repaired fast, keep it safe, get it back fast.

This man-on-mission stood next to our repair technician as the work was being completed. Once repaired, the board went back immediately into the protective briefcase and was returned on the jet to the Gulf-based refinery. Yes! Potential downtime averted and expenses minimized. We are thinking this customer now has several backups for that circuit board!
