However, the most effective maintenance is preventative rather than reactive. We work with many of our clients on planned preventative maintenance (PPM) programmes to significantly reduce the risks of those breakdowns happening in the first place and to ensure that the asset lifecycle is extended as long as possible. PPM is highly valuable for forward planning and for ensuring that plants continue to operate at optimum levels.
Of course, for safety reasons, PPM does sometimes require the shutdown of a plant. Ensuring that the work is then carried out speedily and effectively during this time-critical period is essential to our clients and we have a strong track record in this area. One example is our ongoing work with Norbord’s MDF and particleboard site at Cowie, in Scotland.
We also provide a stockholding service to ensure that spare parts for critical equipment are available as and when required.
