GETTING BUSINESS BACK IN BUSINESS!

A BEAUTIFUL RHYTHM

Today’s industrial equipment is more complex than ever with digital controls, sophisticated electronics and highly engineered moving parts.  In contrast to this complexity, your business has one simple task – create a product and deliver it to a customer.  People run the machines, sell the products, assemble and ship the goods, send and collect the invoices.  One day a fire, flood or other disaster interrupts this beautiful rhythm. 

Electrostar’s team of Certified Technology Restorers™ can effectively restore industrial and manufacturing equipment impacted by soot or moisture saving 70-90% of both replacement cost and plant downtime.  Lead time for equipment replacement, delivery and installation often runs a sluggish 6-18 months creating huge disruptions to supply chains, extended downtime to a company’s production and delivery schedules and precipitating layoffs. Even a company’s most loyal customers will be forced to seek out other suppliers.

Electrostar coordinates with company management and your 3rd party service techs and recertifiers to prioritize equipment restoration based on the company’s needs. All parties working together to get your equipment RECONNECTED and production back on schedule.

When disaster strikes, you could have the option to remove, reorder, replace and then retrain your operators. However, companies that want to re-establish their rhythm and keep their customers satisfied find that restoring affected equipment is the smart, timely and cost-effective way to RESTART their business.

CALL ELECTROSTAR FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE EQUIPMENT RECOVERY NEEDS! ON-SITE IN 24 HOURS.  713.878.2341

What are your options?  How long can you shut down production before watching your customers scramble to find the products they need from your competitor?  What happens to your employees?

Electrostar Electronics Recovery Solutions has skilled technicians prepared to RESPOND to your emergency, RESTORE and RECONNECT your equipment and help you hit the RESTART button to get your business back to business.

However well you know your equipment you are probably unaware of the lethal effect of fire, soot and water on their components.  You are probably equally unaware that those effects can be reversed.  Seemingly minor fire or water events can cause huge disruptions to industrial and manufacturing businesses.  Soot and moisture permeates remote interior areas of equipment in a surprisingly striking and detrimental manner.  Left untreated, affected equipment will rapidly begin to rust and corrode. The costly, often lengthy, replacement process then becomes the only option available to businesses looking to get back to business.

Electrostar is a cutting-edge technology restoration company providing electronic and industrial machinery evaluation, chemical testing, documentation, restoration, and other needed services following a fire/flood/catastrophe.

SCHOOL'S OUT

Disaster doesn’t differentiate when or where it strikes.  Vital institutions such as schools, hospitals, medical facilities and worship centers are also vulnerable to fire, soot and water events.  All of these institutions have two things in common:

·      PEOPLE – students, patients and parishioners - who depend on these institutions daily

·      EQUIPMENT - the increasingly wide variety of equipment that their patrons depend on daily.

Worship, medical and educational facilities have food services areas, office equipment, classroom electronics, computer labs, advanced A/V equipment and extensive musical equipment.   Most medical equipment can be restored and placed back in service quickly.  All of these institutions provide essential community services and often have limited contingency plans for recovery when disaster strikes.  It is critical for worship, education and medical institutions to resume operations quickly and safely.  Electrostar understands this urgency and is prepared to RESPOND with technicians that have the experience to RESTORE the diverse array of equipment found in education, worship and medical environments.   We enable these institutions to rapidly RECONNECT with the constituents they serve and RESTART their essential mission - providing classes, worship services, or patient care.

RIGHT AT HOME

No disaster is more devastating than the one that hits us right at home.  Home is the heart of our comfort zone but when our home becomes ground zero for a fire or flood it can turn our world upside down.

Electrostar works alongside your cleanup and build back contractors to restore your world.  We don’t do board up or wipe down walls.  We don’t launder your clothes or replace your flooring.  There are other companies that specialize in those services.  Our specialty is restoration of your valuable electronics.

Do you have?

  • Washer/Dryer, Refrigerator
  • Small Kitchen Electrics (blender, food processor)
  • PCs, Laptops, Tablets, Printers
  • Video Game Consoles
  • Flat Screen TVs and Monitors
  • DVD, Blu-ray, VCR players
  • Stereo, Home Theater, Music Equipment
  • Wireless Internet, Servers, Routers

Most American households have these items and more - several thousands of dollars’ worth of electronics and appliances.  

Electrostar’s technicians are Certified Technology Restorers™ that will respond to your loss, assess the items for recoverability and provide documentation to your adjuster. We dry out wet items and clean any dust or soot residue.  We are not a repair shop.  If an item is damaged by fire or water- parts are melted, rusted or corroded - it is reported to your insurance company as “non-restorable” due to the event.  Most electronics are highly resilient and, if properly mitigated, highly recoverable.  Electrostar maintains a 95%+ recovery rate on items we attempt to restore.  We restore your consumer electronics and appliances to pre-loss condition (or better!). 

When your home is ready, our techs will reconnect your electronics just as they were.  We don’t just drop the boxes off at your front door like many of our competitors.  Inputs, Outputs, Cables, Routers all reconnected just as they were (well, maybe a little neater).  No need to reprogram, reconfigure or learn new remotes.

Back in your comfort zone…Your world is right again.

ELCTROSTAR SERVES HOUSTON, SAN ANTONIO, AUSTIN, BEAUMONT AND EAST & SOUTH TEXAS FOR RESIDENTIAL INSURANCE LOSSES.
