New Full-Service Manufacturing Support Solution from MAVERICK Technologies
COLUMBIA, Ill. (July 31, 2012) — MAVERICK Technologies has introduced PlantFloor24, the world’s first full-service, platform-independent, 24/7 hardware, software and process support solution. PlantFloor24 allows manufacturers to outsource automation services previously handled by internal staff or outside vendors, thereby reducing operational costs, allowing for flexible staff augmentation and improving asset management. Manufacturers may pick and choose from a complete spectrum of services according to their needs.
The PlantFloor24 team primarily works out of MAVERICK’s newly constructed global operations center, with full remote monitoring, diagnostics and testing capabilities. Resources can be deployed as needed from a pool of more than 500 engineers on staff at MAVERICK’s 18 strategically located U.S. facilities.
“No one else in the industry is offering anything like PlantFloor24,” said Kirk Norris, MAVERICK’s senior vice president of Strategic Manufacturing Solutions. “We provide more services than small systems integrators, with expertise in a broader range of platforms than an OEM. As a result, our clients get objective, comprehensive support for all their technologies.”
Norris directs PlantFloor24 along with Bill Stewart, MAVERICK’s vice president of corporate planning and strategy, and other technical leaders on staff. Norris formerly held several executive positions at Anheuser-Busch, and Stewart formerly worked as a technical leader at The Dow Chemical Company, so each brings extensive experience and unique insight to his leadership role.
PlantFloor24 is just the latest in a family of custom solutions that utilize MAVERICK’s expertise in industrial automation, enterprise integration and strategic manufacturing. In February 2012 MAVERICK launched DCS Next, its innovative, results-focused approach to DCS migration, which has generated a significant response in the manufacturing community. MAVERICK has begun development of other solutions based on client needs, with plans to introduce them in the coming year.
