WHY TAURUS BRAND AUTOMOTIVE FASTENERS?
Earth moving equipment is very expensive and sophisticated equipment
and used under difficult conditions to ensure the work is done in
the fastest possible time. In order to get best out of this equipment,
it is necessary to take care of maintenance so that down time could
be kept to the minimum and machines are working round the clock
to keep maximum benefit from heavy investment made on them.
It is therefore, necessary to choose the right quality parts during
regular replacement schedules or unforeseen break down. It will
be clearly understood that substandard quality parts, even though
cheaper, if used in the equipment, would certainly undergo premature
failure resulting into down time of the machine which will be far
more costly than slightly higher price paid for high quality parts.
