The program guarantees that Doosan heavy equipment machine owners will receive their “machine debilitating” replacement part, in hand, within two business days or Doosan will pay for a replacement machine rental. Doosan Infracore America will get the part in the hands of the customer, wherever they are in North America.
“This is a different kind of parts guarantee program,” said Michael Stanley, President/COO Doosan Infracore America. “We focus on maximizing the uptime of the customer. It doesn’t matter if you get a free $2.00 part. It matters that you are working and making money for your business.”
