by AaronEquipmentCo30. September 2015 13:42
Any business owner who witnessed Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast in 2012 or Hurricane Katrina’s southern wrath in 2005 knows that weather isn’t something to take one’s chances with. These so-called “super storms” devastated businesses not for just a few hours as is typically the case but for days or, in some cases, even weeks, hammering home the importance of a backup power supply. But even shorter-term power outages can really add up when it comes to the lost worker productivity and lost revenue they bring about. [More]

Chicago Power Outages Fail to Leave Aaron Equipment Company in the Dark

Backup Generators Keep New, Used and Reconditioned Equipment Provider Up and Running Chicago, IL – July 11, 2011 – The night the lights went out in Chicago last month, one company managed to operate business as usual despite a nearly three-day power outage. Aaron Equipment Company, a new and used process equipment dealer, leveraged the same standby backup generators it encourages its customers to own. As a result, the firm was able to keep its doors open and its customers’ orders shipping on time. According to the “Chicago Sun-Times,” a storm that ripped through the Chicago area on the night of June 21, 2011 left over 267,000 without power. The next day, 189,000 Chicagoans were still stumbling around in the dark. ComEd, the region’s electric supplier, anticipated that its powerless customers “could have electricity restored by late Thursday” – a full 48 hours later. Even that far out, however, it couldn’t guarantee that full restoration would be the case. Such an extended timeframe left Chicago-area firms at a standstill for over two full business days. Despite its locale just outside of O’Hare Airport, however, Aaron Equipment Company never skipped a beat. By relying on its backup generators, the company was able to continue operating business as usual. The blackout turned the tables on Aaron Equipment Company, putting the firm in a position it’s usually helping its new, reconditioned and used process equipment clients avoid. As a result, the Aaron team was able to practice what it preaches: the importance of having standby / emergency backup generators on hand. Generator Specialist Patrick Paden explains, “You never think it can happen to you – until it does. But by the time the power is out, it’s too late to start scrambling for a solution. Being prepared for an electrical outage is the best way to ensure it doesn’t cripple your means of life. We just witnessed that truism firsthand. What could have amounted to three days down the drain was quickly mitigated with backup power generation.” To save business owners the loss of income that results from a lack of power, Aaron Equipment Company offers a wide range of used generators, new generators and automatic transfer switches. Whatever their backup generation requirements or their price point, Aaron Equipment has the inventory to match.

Standby / Emergency Backup Generators Indispensible Business Commodity During Natural Disasters

by AaronEquipmentCo17. March 2011 15:12
Backup Generators Indispensible Business Commodity During Natural Disasters Aaron Equipment Company Reminding Business Owners of the Importance of Being Prepared Chicago, IL – March 17, 2011 – In the wake of a natural disaster that is being hailed as the worst crisis for Japan since World War II, millions of Japanese citizens are learning just how much havoc an unexpected event can wreak. Having backup generators in place could have averted some of the devastating after effects that resulted from the earthquake and tsunami. In particular, it could have insulated them from the widespread power outages. Aaron Equipment Company, a leading provider of new, used and reconditioned process equipment, including backup generators, is encouraging American businesses to learn from the situation in Japan by assessing their own disaster recovery plans. Earlier this week, the Bloomberg news service reported that millions in Japan were still without power five full days after a crippling earthquake and tsunami rocked the city of Tokyo. The official count of electrical outages was “about 1.3 million households.” To make matters worse, in an effort to save electricity, on March 14, Tokyo Electric announced that it would be starting “scheduled power outages in parts of the greater Tokyo area.” Needless to say, the economy in the Japanese nation is at a virtual standstill. That same day, the Air Self-Defense Forces prepared for the worst at a nuclear power plant in the north of Tokyo by transporting generators there. As the world watches, they can only hope that these after-the-fact initiatives don’t prove to be a case of too little too late. They can also take heed from Japan’s plight and arm themselves with a backup generator now – before such a calamity strikes closer to home. “Disasters like the tsunami in Japan and Hurricane Katrina are a wakeup call to business owners. They can lead to extended periods of time without utility power that knock out a company for days, even weeks,” explains Aaron Equipment Company spokesperson Patrick Paden. “But even everyday events like thunderstorms, unusual weather, brownouts and blackouts can wreak devastation on a business’s productivity. Having an emergency / stand-by / back-up power generator set installed can keep a company running business as usual under even the most unusual of circumstances. A generator set can run an entire facility as well as its servers, computers, phone systems, lights, air conditioners, machinery and all its electrical devices.” Business owners who are taking a second look at their own disaster readiness in light of the situation in Japan can see all of the used generators, new generators and automatic transfer switches Aaron Equipment Company has to offer.
