Stenmar Group has the expertise and facilities to provide quality hydraulic solutions across many sectors. Our expert team and tailored hydraulic services attract industry-leading clients – and ensure they stay with us for years.
One of these is David Bochkareff, Engineering Manager with Ace Gutters. David’s relationship with Stenmar goes back over ten years to when he first contacted Marty Gates for assistance with a project. Recognising the value in our team’s response to his situation, David has continued to utilise the exceptional service and comprehensive knowledge offered by Stenmar Group.
“Both Marty and the team have always been really thorough and extremely forthcoming with ideas and best options on how to do things. They always have a solution to our problems,” says David.
About Ace Gutters
Ace Gutters is a leading manufacturer of rainwater products, roofing and plumbing supplies that has been supplying the Australian market for over 60 years. Fully Australian owned, it has manufacturing plants in Sydney, Melbourne and Nowra.
Ace Gutters manufactures complete systems of guttering, roofing and drainage from its plants – each fitted out with multiple hydraulic systems that require expert hydraulic service and repairs, spare parts from a range of brands, and projects.
“We use Stenmar for ongoing work,” says David. “We buy spare parts from them, use them for regular hydraulic maintenance, and most notably, they’ve also done hydraulic design for us to improve our machinery.”
Customised hydraulic optimisation
Stenmar’s work for Ace Gutters includes the repair and service of hydraulic cylinders, motors and pumps. We’ve also optimised several of Ace Gutters’ hydraulic systems – with positive results for company performance.
“They have come out to identify hydraulic circuits that need optimising to improve our processes,” explains David. “They also did a larger project for us when we purchased hydraulic machinery from a company that had gone into liquidation. We had tried for three months to get the equipment running effectively but it just wasn’t suited to our applications.”
“Stenmar came in, assessed it and redesigned the complete hydraulic circuit. Not only did they get it up, but they also improved on the manufacturer’s design circuit to make it work really efficiently.”
As David says, “The team always goes above and beyond to make sure any breakdowns are fixed in the quickest time and the service technicians are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and prompt. They never leave us caught out.
I suppose Stenmar’s willingness to always find solutions to our problems is what I find them really good at. They understand what we are trying to achieve, and they always come up with a good solution that improves our hydraulic performance.”
