Benefits Of Outsourcing Facility Maintenance
What is Outsourced Maintenance?
Outsourced maintenance is the practice of using a third party to handle some or all aspects of plant equipment and facility maintenance. At KRC, our Complete Maintenance Solution Division is capable of managing all maintenance inside the four walls of your factory including NC equipment, special processing equipment, CMM, overhead cranes and hoists, and building maintenance just to name a few areas.
Top Maintenance Challenges Manufacturers Face:
Current Lack of skilled technical talent
Failure to implement new strategies and technologies to improve processes
High unplanned maintenance costs
High rate of equipment downtime
Unsuccessful or nonexistent PM Program
Changing focus to core competency of manufacturing products vs. fixing equipment
Why Outsource Maintenance?
Continual crisis mode in your maintenance department leads to friction between all functional departments in your business. Outsourced maintenance providers can bridge the gap between operations and maintenance departments - once every area of your factory is working together your company will be able to achieve greater productivity.
Outsourcing maintenance also offers a streamlined process solution that will create the real and measurable results your current maintenance routine is failing to meet.
