Pipeline Construction is a dynamic industry that continues to grow and change with the changes in the crude oil prices. The country has already seen a severe downtrend few years ago, leaving companies cash stripped and forcing them to quit the sector. With lot of ongoing and upcoming projects, the industry sees an upward trend but the dearth of equipment is leading to the delays in projects. The equipment required is niche, expensive and mostly imported so the fear factor of buying such expensive equipment persists which makes the pre-owned equipment market in this sector bigger than the new equipment market especially when it comes to critical equipment like Pipelayers, Pipe Benders and Boring Machines to name a few.
Image of a company is reflected by the condition of the equipment fleet it owns. While the looks matter, reliability and productivity of the equipment act as critical factors for timely project completion. A relatively new, clean and recently painted equipment is any company’s best advertisement. If an equipment is non-presentable, emits loud noises and looks old enough to belong to the junkyard, then it doesn’t speak too highly of the organisation that owns it. It is important to understand, that new equipment is not the only option if an organisation wants a reliable and productive equipment but option of procuring used equipment in good condition and with decent looks can also be considered. While operating construction business, it is important to invest the capital wisely. For any new site requirements buying a new equipment is the easiest thing to do, but there are times when it would make sense to invest in used equipment. Buying new equipment is an investment that can have a significant impact on company’s cash flow. Buying new may mean placing an order and waiting for equipment to get delivered. While there is the advantage of taking delivery of a new machine but a possible lag time might delay the project as well. However, one can purchase quality used equipment and at much lower costs.
There are a number of benefits in buying pre-owned machinery from a reliable source and Ajashy Engineering can boast about providing reliable equipment which are cost effective to the Oil and Gas contractors and help them to save their capital which can be invested in their other projects.

While in need of equipment one needs to evaluate exactly how important is speed of delivery to the equation of spending money and period of use. Used equipment if available in good condition and available right away can drastically change the equation and supplier like Ajashy Engineering can add value to purchase of such pre-owned equipment providing support such as on-site commissioning and after sales support.
