Realizing Potential

Maintenance is key to long-term success

Maintenance is more than just a cost to production. It provides the foundation for a business’s performance and profitability, affecting everything from safety to plant productivity and energy efficiency. From designing a new plant, to getting it running and keeping it running optimally, having the right approach to maintenance makes a real difference in both the short and long-term.

Industries rarely realize the full potential of maintenance

When working with new customers we often find: the total cost of maintenance is not under full control; spare parts and subcontracting costs constantly exceed budgeted levels; the impact of maintenance on the equipment life cycle cannot be quantified; maintenance is conducted in isolation of productivity improvements; and the cost of unplanned shut downs often exceeds the total maintenance budget.

In a world where increasing regulation, competition and costs put pressure on our customers’ businesses, we constantly ask: Where can maintenance have the greatest impact; how can it contribute to a more prosperous future for our customers, in both the short and long term?

Providing value-added maintenance

All customers are concerned about rising maintenance costs and many need to improve safety performance. Some want to increase productivity or capacity to seize market opportunities. Others need to improve energy efficiency to reduce operating costs or reduce waste to meet regulatory changes.

When our customers outsource their maintenance management and execution to us we ensure that they achieve both their short and long term goals. We deploy empowered, maintenance-focused people to work as an integrated part of their production teams, using world-class processes and methodologies to improve safety and productivity all while optimizing cost.

To meet our customers’ goals we have a proven process for evaluating the potential we can realize before we start working together. Agreed goals are then continuously reviewed against actual performance. Working under performance-based agreements helps ensure that all investments in maintenance create ‘real’, sustainable business benefits, and that we all share in the value created.

Our unique approach to optimizing maintenance management and execution, with a focus on education, motivation and empowerment, takes our customers’ performance to the next level adding value in both the short and long term.

Empowering People

People-driven maintenance

Maintenance is a people business. From embedding superior safety practices and building a true maintenance culture, to optimizing maintenance cost and improving plant performance, our people make the difference.

A motivated, professional team

We are maintenance professionals – experts at empowering our people to realize the full potential of maintenance for our customers. We take pride in managing and executing maintenance and believe that a motivated, empowered and skilled team of dedicated professionals is a force to be reckoned with.

We implement effective planning and working methods, training our people to use our best practice processes and tools, while empowering them to create value and reduce waste. We ensure they understand how they can contribute to realizing the full potential of maintenance for our customers, linking their performance targets directly to those agreed with the customer.

Realizing sustainable business benefits for our customers requires the development and optimization of maintenance practices in a continuous collaboration, where we work as an integrated part of their teams and take responsibility for success. With proven change management processes, we ensure maintenance continues to achieve measurable results and that the benefits always outweigh the cost.
