Nov. 29, 2017 - Motion Industries, a distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts and a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company, has announced that Motion Canada TechCan Services in Edmonton, Alta., is now authorized as an SKF Certified Rebuilder – Gearboxes, as well as an SKF Certified Rebuilder – Conveyor Pulleys.

SKF associates audited TechCan Services and presented certification signifying that TechCan had met all the necessary criteria, with the emphasis on teardown and inspection procedures, machine tools and repair procedures, storage, documentation and other exacting standards and technical specifications. Before the final audit, SKF held training for the shop and helped develop action items to help TechCan reach certification levels.

“SKF Certified rebuilder program provides the right processes, training, tools and components to achieve cost-effective re-builds and often upgrading to better than new,” said Shawn Gibson, president of SKF Canada. “I am very impressed by TechCan Services’ commitment and their diligent work and professionalism in obtaining their certifications. We will support TechCan Services with application engineering and gearbox remanufacturing from our industrial service centre in Cambridge, Ontario.”

The programs are designed to keep authorized service centres up-to-date with the latest technologies and best practices. SKF Certified Rebuilders must complete regular audits to help ensure compliance with SKF’s standards, and must also meet their requirements for continuous improvement and competence development.

“Being a qualified, certified SKF partner allows us to communicate to our customers that we hold ourselves to those same, very high standards. It’s very important to our customers that they can send their components in to a service centre and not have to worry about it. They can have 100 per cent confidence the rebuilds will be completed right the first time and every time,” said Mark Tinis, TechCan branch manager.
