Husky’s flexible Pro-Act program helps customers improve asset availability and performance
For release 2009-06-02
Bolton, Ontario - Husky Injection Molding Systems today announced the launch of its new Pro-Act™ flexible maintenance program to help customers improve asset availability and performance. Pro-Act is part of Husky’s range of expanded Services offerings, which help customers achieve the best return on their investment by maximizing efficiencies throughout a system’s life cycle.
“The Pro-Act maintenance program is based on a proactive, as opposed to a reactive, maintenance model that is designed to ensure maximum performance by acting as a cure for unplanned customer downtime,” said Jeff MacDonald, Husky’s Vice President of Marketing. “We have found that industry-wide, most systems degrade by up to 17% over 10 years. By offering Pro-Act, we are helping customers to be more cost-effective by maintaining overall operational effectiveness.”
Pro-Act, which will be on display at the Husky booth (S36009) at NPE 2009 (Chicago, June 22 – 26), is a multi-level contract program designed to help customers maximize asset availability and performance by responding to problems before they take place. Using measureable results, maintenance activities are pre-planned and custom-built depending on the needs of each customer. This allows the program to be tailored to a customer’s specific needs.
The Pro-Act program offers three levels of service, each providing customers with more in-depth services and greater value, including:
- Entry level proactive maintenance – including an annual assessment and calibration performed by Husky technicians
- Intermediate level proactive maintenance – Husky works with a customer’s internal maintenance staff to achieve optimal machine availability
- Advanced level proactive maintenance – Husky is enlisted to ensure optimal machine performance with the goal of fixing maintenance costs within the operation
