Just yesterday, ISA Executive Director and CEO, Patrick Gouhin attended an invitation-only event at Maverick Technologies headquarters in Columbia, Illinois to participate in the grand opening of their 24/7 Global Operations Center.
Nearly 100 people participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony and formal launch of PlantFloor24.
PlantFloor24 is the world’s first full-service, platform-independent, 24/7 hardware, software and process support solution. PlantFloor24 grew out of Maverick’s Strategic Manufacturing Solutions and Operational Consulting offerings.
Maverick presented a case for how PlantFloor24 will allow manufacturers to reduce operational costs, augment staff with multidisciplinary skills, and improve asset management.
Maverick CEO and Founder Paul Galeski provided an overview of the new full-service manufacturing support solution as well as a company history.
Pat Gouhin added:
“MAVERICK continues to demonstrate thought leadership in industrial automation by bringing the services and solutions to market that American manufacturers need.”
This event was attended by customers, partners, and media, including Walt Boyes from Control Global and Gary Mintchell from Automation World. Maverick Technologies is an Automation Week 2012 partner.
Here’s a little more background about PlantFloor24 from Maverick’s blog:
“It’s a fully secure operational center with remote monitoring, biometric hand scans, backup generators and war-room style views into operations,” said Kirk Norris, senior vice president, Strategic Manufacturing Solutions.
Not only will this center and the PlantFloor24solution be a lifeline for manufacturing facilities, it will provide manufacturers across the globe with the ability to:
- Reduce operational costs
- Augment staff with multidisciplinary skills
- Improve asset management
On behalf of ISA, we offer our congratulations to the folks at Maverick Technologies on their launch of PlantFloor24!
