The service backup is second to none with regard to spare parts availability, and customers fall in love with their products to the point that they will spend hundreds of dollars repairing fifteen and twenty year old equipment rather than replace it.

The business in Australia was small, successful and profitable, with steady but unspectacular growth. By 1993, Bang & Olufsen in Denmark had just completed a radical restructure, and the company, under a new young and aggressive management team was in the process of making a remarkable turn around from the brink of disaster. Following the massive restructuring program, Bang & Olufsen was looking for significant growth opportunities. The main European markets were well established and it was assumed that there was limited opportunity for double digit growth, therefore it was decided to focus on the agency-run markets and push some serious expansion into the Asian region. There had long been a belief held by Bang & Olufsen Denmark (typical of many European based companies) that a country as large as Australia needed far wider coverage than just the main capital cities.

The selection of motors for use as components in medical devices such as orthopedic products was an involved process, usually requiring electrical engineers at the OEM to consult with application engineers from the motor manufacturer in order to get a customized design specified to their parameters, including physical-size constraints. Given the complex nature of designing and building small-but-sophisticated orthopedic power tools, these “value-add” customer service features were just as important in the OEM decision-making process as the technical features of a motor. The most critical OEM purchasing criteria included the following: Thermal (heat) resistance. A common cause of motor failure was when the expected load (the turning torque) exceeded the motor’s rating, causing the motor to heat up quickly and break down. Usually it was desirable to select a motor that would not reach its maximum operating temperature (measured in degrees Celsius) in the specific orthopedic
