After-sales service, assistance and maintenance FAO

Our fields of activity

After-sales service for our equipment is provided by our FAO teams. This service offers support to all FAO customers from the moment their installation is commissioned.
FAO’s teams of technicians are available throughout France to install, commission, maintain, support, and troubleshoot your storage system.
As designers and manufacturers, we have complete expertise in the operation of our equipment. This enables us to quickly identify potential problems and resolve them efficiently, thus reducing your plant’s downtime.

FAO can also help you revamp your storage, drying, cleaning, and handling equipment for grain and bulk products. Our teams will provide you with their expertise in processes as well as in mechanical, electrical and programming aspects.

Audit and diagnosis of your installation

FAO offers the Audit & Diagnostic contract, which includes the preventive actions to be carried out.
This contract includes the intervention of an expert FAO technician who checks the condition and operation of your equipment: grain dryer, handling, storage silo.

At the end of the work, you will receive a detailed report with photos and our recommendations, including a list of parts to be replaced, a list of maintenance work to be carried out and proposals for optimising the equipment.

Our offer also includes a free telephone helpline that puts you directly in touch with one of our experienced technicians. What’s more, you’ll benefit from a preferential rate on spare parts, and priority in the event of remedial work.
