Experienced hands on deck are required for the upgrade of outdated equipment. It comes in good use too for the installation of new tools, equipment and/or machinery. Extensive technical and practical experience is being utilized whilst developing implementing and managing your anodizing project. This does not appear to be a project that you would be able to manage in your own stead. Or how do you feel about this?
Experience and expertise may stand a better chance of delivering better, reliable and desired results. The capabilities to work on a variety of systems should be a big hands-up. Examples of these include the ability to custom engineer cooling systems for your anodizing tanks, processing your tanks and optimally managing your essential waste water treatment systems. Somehow, in this area, you have done your best, but essentially, in this area, there must always be room for improvement.
Perhaps you are comfortable using your own hands. Perhaps you are happy with the efforts being made by your staff. Perhaps the next step up is to just turn to expertized technical consulting work every once in a while. This could be done remotely, but ideally the work should remain hands-on and on site. Or how do you feel about this? Would you care to add a further input to this suggestion? Either way, you are still going to need them for this next project.
Perhaps you are still in the throes of setting up your workshop. It would do you no harm to take note of turnkey solutions that could be going into the building of your new anodizing facilities. It can accommodate your specific requirements but it can also introduce you to new technologies currently in use by other businesses.
