Long lead times for industrial equipment are impeding many heavy civil and construction projects right now. Supply chain disruptions aggravated due to the COVID-19 pandemic are still prominent, with contractors and organizations in every province experiencing delays and other challenges in getting the supplies they need to complete projects and meet deadlines. Two to three years ago, the typical lead time when purchasing equipment was two months, but it is now averaging six to eight months… and sometimes even a year! These issues ultimately result in rising costs, losses in revenues, and extreme pressure on organizational teams.
“Supply chain is also impacted by staffing issues. It has become more difficult for manufacturers to hire and keep factory workers. If this continues, availability will likely continue to suffer,” explains Barry Cavenagh, Account Manager at Axiom Equipment Group for over ten years.
At Axiom Equipment Group, we have been proactive in ensuring that we can face these challenges and fulfill our customers’ needs, especially when it comes to manufacturing and procuring highly in-demand products like generators and light towers.
Cavenagh adds, “We understand that in the construction industry, things move fast. If they need equipment tomorrow, they expect to have it. Now, it’s realistic to expect several months of lead time, but at Axiom, these lead times are much shorter.”
“When we tell customers that our lead time is about two months or less, they’re surprised at how much better it is than the alternatives. We’re proud of that!”
With that being said, we are proud to present our industry leading Megagen Z Series Generators and the Metrolite LED Light Towers!
Megagen Z Series Generators (25 – 150 kVA)
With a robust design and long-lasting components, these generators are perfect for the heavy civil/construction industry. They have an automatic load bank, large capacity fuel tank, 110% spill containment, and can be remote-controlled through DSE controllers.
Metrolite LED Light Towers
Understanding that LED light towers are now much preferred over other options because of their greater efficiency and durability, as well as naturally brighter lights, we offer three different types of light towers: Electric (ELT-4320), Hybrid (HLT-6150), and Diesel (DLT-18HD & DLT 4C & 8C Series). For more information on our specific models, browse our website.
With our extensive inventory of equipment and parts, as well as a dedicated team of experts, we can supply your needs at much shorter lead times than other providers. Whether you’re in the heavy civil/construction, equipment rental, mining, pipeline, or powerline industry, we can provide you with the right equipment, at the right time, for the right price.
Take it from a client we’ve served – Duncan Olsen, Equipment Manager for the Keeyask Hydro Damn Project in Gillam, Manitoba:
“As an equipment manager on a major construction project in Northern Canada, I deal with a large number of vendors. In my dealings on this particular project, I was fortunate enough to come into contact with Axiom; right from the very first meeting, I found the team at Axiom to be enthusiastic, energetic, and very professional. They always go the extra mile. I can call them any time of day any day of the week; Axiom is always there for me. In time we formed what can best be described as a partnership, I have relied on them heavily to deliver quality products in a timely fashion. Axiom never lets me down – at the end of the day, Axiom’s after-sales service is truly what separates them from the pack. As this project winds down and I begin to look for the next big opportunity I know that my first call will be to Axiom! “I think the best word to describe Axiom is ‘Professionalism’.”
