When a current customer contacts Symons with a need for an upgrade they will be offered the option to ship their old unit back to Symons Screen for inspection and offered a trade credit on their purchase based on the condition of their trade. “This is a great deal for our customers,” Douglass said. “It saves them money in two ways: First, it reduces the cost of their capital purchase; second, it keeps them from having to spend money on plant modifications to retrofit a new screen.”
Symons Screens estimates that the average client will see in the neighborhood of five to 20 percent savings from the cost of a new screener by utilizing the trade program. “We’re able to give a pretty good idea of the type of discount a customer can expect with a few well taken photographs,” said Douglass. “This way everyone has a pretty good estimate of their discount before they make their decision and before any capital expenditures. The whole process only takes about 4-8 weeks from inquiry to shipment. We’ve done this a couple of times now and everyone involved seemed to be very pleased with the outcome.”
