Industry Overview - Diversified industrials companies like yours face relentless competitive pressures in engineering and manufacturing a wide variety of products. Under tough economic conditions organizations are looking to renew growth by focusing on faster product cycles, reduced production costs, higher quality, and improved productivity. To compete effectively you demand lower-cost, dependable, flexible manufacturing systems.
Workforce skills gaps and complex equipment make it harder for you to improve production efficiency and flexibility. Ageing facilities and equipment increases your operating costs and reduces production uptime. With limited capital and operating budgets, you need to find creative ways to increase production throughput while raising quality levels and lowering production costs.
When you refit existing facilities your investments must result in flexibility and efficiency gains and uptime improvements – this means equipment that is easy to setup and use with minimal maintenance requirements and low operating costs. Ultimately, the products you choose must be ultra reliable, efficient in energy consumption, and deliver excellent value for the money invested.
