Why manufacturers must boost maintenance budgets

In recent years, manufacturers have dedicated less and less money to maintenance budgets as competition grows, margins become tighter and equipment costs increase.

The decline in the amount of money allocated to maintenance budgets in this sector is surprising when you consider that the majority of manufacturers are increasing their installed equipment base.

While maintenance may not be seen as an investment in the same way that staff and equipment are, in reality it’s an essential means of protecting assets such as electric motors, variable-speed drives, pumps and other electro-mechanical equipment.

A programme of regular preventative or predictive maintenance ensures that issues can be dealt with before faults occur, meaning unplanned downtime is significantly reduced, not to mention the considerable expense associated with such an inconvenience.
