THE DOWNTIME SLAYERS
The BOSS Magazine|February 2021
Industrial equipment specialists ProcessBarron keep heavy industry on the move

Heavy industry is a beautiful thing. Muscular, fearsome, fascinating, and to the casual observer, unstoppable. Realistically, stopping is inevitable even for the biggest, most powerful, and dependable pieces of equipment. When that downtime is unplanned, critical industries such as steel, power, cement, paper, and biomass, can lose millions in a matter of hours. When there’s no time to waste, they rely on ProcessBarron.

As one of the world’s leading material handling equipment manufacturers, ProcessBarron leverages 40 years of air handling, gas handling, and air pollution control expertise to keep complex industrial equipment performing safely and at peak.

“We’re really proud to be one of the few companies in the country to specialize in everything from design, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance of all of our products,” COO Tim Iori said. “We’re a concept to completion equipment provider with an exceptional emergency field services component.”

That mighty expertise became particularly desirable when the pandemic emerged. “A lot of our customers pushed their service work into the future, and that has turned into a tremendous amount of emergency repair and rebuild work for us,” Iori noted. “It’s in our wheelhouse and we’re sending teams out very quickly to respond to emergencies. We work 24/7, so that’s been an area where we’ve seen substantial growth.”

As company chief revenue officer Ken Buttery put it, “Forced outages are unfortunate events, and we made a point to be able to react. If a customer has an issue, we can jump all over it very quickly to help.”

Maintaining a flexible workforce has been a key advantage, Iori added. “We’re able to flex between the factory and service side, and as some of our customers hunkered down and held off large capex projects, we’re able to take those resources and allocate them elsewhere.”
