Sidel and Gebo Cermex service teams to exhibit jointly at Drinktec ’17
Tuesday, 04 July, 2017, 08 : 00 AM [IST]
How services help to build, maintain and improve beverage producers’ line performance throughout their asset lifecycles will be a key highlight for the Sidel and Gebo Cermex services teams, exhibiting jointly as a part of the Sidel Group at Drinktec 2017, slated to take place in Munich between September 11 and 15.

The new Sidel and Gebo Cermex services that will be launched at Drinktec include:
  • Modular maintenance solutions, evolving from existing support and supervision packages, offering tailored answers to customers’ needs. This enables manufacturers to achieve maximum availability and reliable production, while controlling costs
  • Customised training solutions, helping beverage producers build their teams’ performance. This allows a shorter time-to-market and a safe vertical start-up, together with reduced long-term mean time to repair (MTTR) for better efficiency
With the marketplace growing ever more competitive and with ever-changing consumer demand for greater flexibility, beverage producers are pushing the limits of their production equipment to their very maximum. This increasingly emphasises the need to secure optimum performance throughout their asset lifecycles.

Jean-François Tourrenc, vice-president, services, Gebo Cermex, said, “Beverage producers need to be able to focus on their core business – achieving the productivity levels and meeting the quality targets that are key to profitability.”

“In order to do that, they need to rely on continuous performance throughout the whole production process,” he added.

“Clearly, each stage of production comes with specific requirements - after designing and building a piece of equipment or a line, a fast and safe start-up allows the benefits of the asset to be realised more quickly through well trained operators,” Tourrenc said.

“Once production has started, the main objective is to maintain and enhance the value of the investment made in the equipment, getting the most out of it,” he added.

“This is where stable and continuous performance is required, to achieve total control and predictability of line output and operational costs over time,” Tourrenc said.

“Throughout the assets’ lifecycles, longer-term competitiveness is secured, continually ensuring that installed solutions are flexible enough to accommodate evolving consumers’ needs and technology developments, while constantly reducing the environmental footprint and total cost of ownership (TCO),” he added.
Continuous performance means maximum production uptime and constant availability of materials, technical and field support.

Tourrenc said, “We will showcase how the Sidel and Gebo Cermex Services portfolio can help beverage producers to secure no-stop operations, via a real partnership with their original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).”

“Today leading organisations are leaving behind reactive maintenance. They understand that more proactive approaches can lead to more predictability over production output and costs over time. A close partnership with the OEM is crucial in adopting such a path,” he added.
