Industrial Boilers Aftermarket Should Not Be an Afterthought

Many OEM manufacturers have struggled with implementing a comprehensive aftermarket business strategy. The majority of the time, the attention is laser focused on the manufacturing side.  Aftermarket is viewed as an afterthought.

Savvy marketers such as Victory Energy are realizing that the aftermarket is a way to enhance their operation beyond spare parts sales and the occasional service call. Increasingly, OEM’s are using their aftermarket operations to view and act on trends and market insights to develop new products.  At Victory Energy, it is the end-user driven “End-Market” that is being primed for growth with diverse offerings. The development of the Victory Energy High Temp Thermal Fluid Generator (HTTW) was predicated directly on market need and user feedback.

Product development is being driven out of ideas generated by end-market requirements that have an extremely tight demand cycle.  The nimbleness of an aftermarket group is ideally suited to serving this niche.  It’s a game-changing paradigm that Victory Energy is embracing.

Making a commitment to the end-market needs to go far beyond just spare parts and overhauls.  As plant operations are forced to get by with fewer people resources, the burden of service is shifting to OEM suppliers.  Many are not prepared to deal with this responsibility.  It means having qualified people on board who can be sent out at a moment’s notice.  Having spare parts that are stocked and actually available to the customer’s stringent requirements, not to the needs of the manufacturing operation, is a mandatory.

Rethinking an end-market strategy calls for viewing your “aftermarket” business as not only being any and all activities after the product leaves the Victory Energy plant floor, but also broader opportunities to offer solutions through custom engineered products for client needs as well as services on boilers manufactured by other OEMs.  Every interaction needs to be part of the end-market engagement strategy.  Victory Energy’s approach is from Concept to Completion, ensuring that customers and their industrial boilers are well cared for.  Operator training at start-up is as important as the delivery of the boiler itself.  Preventative maintenance programs ensure continual operation of the boiler without interruption.  At Victory Energy, this is all part of the product brand experience.

People are the component that ultimately drives the success of an aftermarket program and the company itself.  VEO end-market people are the face of the company, who often times deal with tough issues on the ground at the product installation.  They must be great listeners and have a strong sense of conviction.  The same holds true of the business leaders.  The end market must be embraced as a fundamental core element of the business.  The end-market – it makes good business sense.

Talent from across the Globe that’s uniquely American

To compete in today’s intensely competitive global economy, finding and retaining talent is a fundamental requirement to ensure success.  Companies need to seek out talent from all corners of the world.  Education is critically important – as is direct hands-on experience.  Talented people are everywhere.   Diverse thinking and distinct approaches create breakthroughs and game-changing technologies.  The challenge is to recruit them and retain them.

People are what make Victory Energy successful.  You can’t make the best boilers without the best people.  The company is a uniquely American success story.  Started with the founder’s vision and passion to make great industrial boilers right here in American with great people that shared in the quest to be the best, the company is achieving tremendous growth.

Victory Energy is a direct reflection that great things can happen in America.  A place where employees of all walks of life, nationalities, backgrounds and educations come together for a common goal.  It is a microcosm for how this country is still the land of opportunity.

Throughout Victory Energy, there are people who have contributed to the success of the company that never imagined they’d end up working in Collinsville, Oklahoma.  For many, the journey was long, arduous and filled with personal struggles.

One example is Bochuan Lin, Ph.D who is Director of the Department of Technology – a vital position in the company.  He’s responsible for R & D in our new industrial boilers.  Bochuan grew up in China and achieved several degrees with academic institutions in Beijing.

Bochuan Lin, Ph. D Director, Department of Technology Victory Energy Operations, LLC

Bochuan is a critically important part of Victory Energy’s success.  Much like all our employees, he’s an integral fabric of what makes the company work.  He’s touched many of us, both personally and professionally.  The other day, the company celebrated Bochuan receiving his U.S. Citizenship.  All of us were as proud of him as he was of himself.  It’s another milestone in a long line of professional achievements that he’s realized in his career.

Much like our industrial boilers needing a fuel source to run effectively and efficiently, Victory Energy requires great people like Bochuan Lin to power the company.  It happens every day in our facilities in Collinsville and Cushing.

Bochuan Lin and Victory Energy are proof that the American Dream is alive and well.
