We are a full-service equipment and facility maintenance company.  We offer a wide range of top-quality multi-location services to national chain drug stores across the Continental United States at competitive rates. We help our customers centralize their maintenance activity to reduce expenses and operate more efficiently.

Fixing wobbling and broken shopping cart wheels and casters is an integral part of our service programs.  Because carts are frequently used, malfunctioning wheels is a common problem.  Loose wheels can cause unsafe conditions for shoppers, children riding in carts, and employees by veering in the wrong direction or tipping over.  We lubricate wheels and casters on shopping carts to make sure they are working properly.  Our technicians inspect and examine the cart's wheels while checking for rust, alignments, damage and excessive dirt.  Because they stock replacement parts, they substitute damaged wheels and casters with new ones as needed.  We provide warranty work on behalf of shopping cart and accessories manufacturers as well.

We also provide rolling stock equipment repair, maintenance and cleaning solutions to drug stores. Our expertise includes maintenance services for rolling ladders, pallet jacks, and shopping carts for businesses that sell medicine, candy, cosmetics, magazines, food and soft drinks.

French Company's customized pricing is uniquely tailored to the type and frequency our customers desires for  retail equipment, cart repair and preventatiave maintenance (PM), rolling stock equipment inspections, and material handling equipment. We offer a variety of service programs, flexible scheduling and pricing options which include full preventative maintenance, per piece of equipment, per location, flat rate, "On Call", parts and labor, and leasing. Each of our full service maintenance programs are individually designed for drug store and pharmacy businesses.

Our programs incorporate a tactical approach to meet our customers' needs, to achieve their business goals and support their equipment and facility management plans. Equipment maintenance, repair, and replacement part data is collected at each store location by our service technicians using laptop computers and digital cameras. This data is used to create Cost Reduction Reports (CRRs) which are used by our drug store customers to detect opportunities for enterprise wide cost savings. 

Our services are scheduled to specific frequencies requested by our multi-location drug store and pharmacy clients. Visits to individual drug stores and pharmacy locations can be scheduled monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or yearly.

Our clients consider French Company to be experts in the equipment maintenance and facilities solutions industry. They understand the importance of maintaining shopping carts that are smooth-rolling, safe and clean. We make sure that the shopping carts supplied by our clients to their customers can effectively transport merchandise they from the drug store aisles and pharmacy shelves, to the check-out counter and to their vehicles parked outside.

The most common warranty and non-warranty retail equipment work we perform for drug stores and pharmacies is to fix, repair, assess, lubricate, inspect, maintain and clean their shopping carts. We replace, fix and install shopping cart wheels, handles, seat flaps, bumpers, accessories, safety belts, locks and keys, child safety harnesses, axles, swivel wheels, and casters for plastic, wire, and metal shopping carts that are new and used.  A secondary service we provide is pressure cleaning of drug store and pharmacy sidewalks and awnings.

Our FacilityConnect division provides unique facility solutions to commercial retail organizations and their maintenance contractors, vendors and service providers. Our skilled technicians perform observations and notations regarding physical assets, walk through inspections, photography, reporting, measuring, and documentation of building and landscape deficiencies that may require correction. Using reports and pcitures, they document work performed (before and after) by contractors, vendors and other service providers.

Our national staff performs equipment and building condition assessments, audits, surveys, property inspections,  service vendor work performance audits, and physical equipment / fixed asset tagging and tracking.  Using numbered asset tags with bar codes to facilitate fixed asset management and tracking, we help our multi store operators identify opportunities for ongoing financial and operational enhancements across their entire portfolio of properties and locations.  We provide national drug stores and pharmacies with comprehensive and productive retail equipment, shopping cart, rolling stock equipment and facilities maintenance services.

Our data is used by facility managers and company executives for strategic planning and budgeting. Our reports are used in combination with a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to manage physical assets across departments, locations, facilities and business units. By managing facility assets, drug store operators improve utilization and performance, reduce capital and operating costs, extend asset life and subsequently improve ROA (return on assets).

Our customized services enable our clients to manage and maximize the value of their assets and equipment. Our cost reduction reports (CRRs) are used to perform Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) tasks such as design, construction, commissioning, operations, maintenance and decommissioning/replacement of drug store retail equipment and facility assets.

By combining the retail equipment services provided by French Company and the facility solutions of FacilityConnect, multi-store Drug Stores and Pharmacies are moving away from a reactive management business model to new systems that utilize whole life planning, life cycle costing, planned and proactive maintenance and other industry leading practices.
