The need for durable equipment and an experienced welder that can address the demands of different applications is vital. Gaining the best results is all about having the right equipment and right person for the job, so it’s important to assess the application and choose your equipment and professional accordingly.

    What is a Total Cost of Ownership?

    A total cost of ownership (TCO) is the purchase price of a product plus the cost of operations. When calculating the total cost of ownership, it exemplifies the overall value of a product over time giving you a better idea of how much something is worth.

    When gathering data to make a purchasing decision, buyers should not only consider the initial price of a product, but they should also consider the long-term price of a product which would be the TCO. The item with the lower total cost of ownership is the better value overall.
