Ovenbouw Holland Group has developed an Integrated Maintenance Philosophy, which is based on the idea that the client’s staff should be able to fully focus on core activities (e.g. production), and that maintenance should not be regarded as cost, but as a reliable supply of availability of the production facilities. After finalizing a long-term performance-based contract, Ovenbouw Holland Group will strive to professionalize local maintenance: to ensure that the correct maintenance is carried out at the correct time and place, using the correct materials. Another target is to continuously improve all well-documented maintenance activities, as well as to eliminate improvised maintenance activities, symptom-oriented maintenance practice and sub-optimal maintenance performance. Frequent communication on all levels and the full commitment of Ovenbouw Holland Group will prove essential in obtaining a successful maintenance philosophy.
