When you buy a car, in order for it perform and have longevity like it’s supposed to, you need to make sure that you are keeping up with the maintenance.  Along with that goes repairing and replacing old parts so the car continues to be reliable and durable.  At Yazoo Mills, we take the maintenance on our machines very seriously so we are able to keep them running at all times.

Yazoo’s Maintenance Department has been keeping pretty busy with the annual maintenance of our 11 automatic, five semi-automatic, two high-speed automatic, and three Eppler recutters.  Our Maintenance Department disassembles, cleans, inspects, repairs, and reassembles each recutter annually as part of our preventative maintenance program.

Keeping up with the maintenance on these machines helps prevent breakdowns, minimizes downtime, and allows the machines to function properly and smoothly.  Each recutter is maintained throughout the year with monthly and bi-monthly lubes and inspections.

      

      

Over the past few years, Yazoo’s Maintenance Department has grown so much, that space was becoming very limited in the shop.  Recently, we moved the maintenance shop to our old pallet warehouse.  The new shop is triple the size of the old one and has brighter and more efficient lighting, extra room for storage, a few new tools and storage closets, a big garage door for deliveries, and a brand new modular office with computers, desks, and chairs.

Yazoo is currently in the process of turning the old maintenance shop into a new break area for employees.  The new break area will have heating and air conditioning, a brand new kitchen, new seating, two big windows, and a large monitor to display company news.  Additionally, the old storage room will be used to add additional restrooms to our facility.  Both projects are expected to be completed by the end of this month.
