Pathway Extended Warranty
The Pathway Extended Warranty provides Brooks customers with an additional 12 months of coverage during the initial warranty period.
Coverage includes first-shift labor Monday through Friday as well as all corrective and preventive maintenance parts. Purchased at the
point of tool sale for a discount off list price, the Extended Warranty is a known, fixed cost for customers, which eliminates service
expense surprises during that additional year of coverage.
With the Pathway Extended Warranty, skilled, experienced Brooks service team professionals maintain covered tools to help ensure
consistently high performance and minimize unscheduled downtime. This service option is designed to give customers peace of mind,
with full coverage and priority response times for an extended period, enabling them to focus internal resources on strategic
priorities rather than tool maintenance.
Pathway Spares Packages provide Brooks-defined spares that can be purchased at any time during the life of a tool — from initial
sale through full production — enabling customers to better meet quick turnaround requirements and support older installed fleets.
Pre-kitted spares packages allow customers to purchase a captive inventory of factory-certified spares based on their tool model and
usage history. These flexible packages provide a path to extend tool life for end-of-life (EOL) tools by maintaining a stock of
recommended critical parts.
Assembled in the region, spares packages ensure that customers have the parts in the right place at the right time to minimize
wait periods and maximize tool uptime. Brooks recommends that customers combine purchased spares packages with service offerings from
the Pathway Labor Portfolio to best maintain their existing fleet and ensure superior, repeatable repair quality.
