Given the looming threat of climate change, many companies are implementing ambitious sustainability goals for their manufacturing processes. However, with the current economic state, many of the same companies are forced to impose stricter budgets, as well. Often, it is difficult to become more sustainable without investing in new equipment or completely overhauling and reteaching the manufacturing process. This is where MRO Repair Programs can help.
What is an MRO Repair Program?
An MRO Repair Program is a partnership between a SME supplier and a manufacturing company. The SME supplier helps the manufacturer manage the repair process for all failed parts, keep track of spare parts inventory, find the proper repair partner, and more. This partnership is meant to make the repair process easy for manufacturing professionals.
How do MRO Repair Programs help with sustainability?
Instead of implementing major changes to hit sustainability goals, such as purchasing all new machinery that creates less waste or changing the manufacturing process to use less raw material, repairing failed machine spare parts instead of buying new is a simple fix to become more sustainable. Repairing machine spare parts instead of buying new helps cut waste produced by the plant and helps cut down on energy required to create new parts. Often, MRO partners will also help ensure that you can seamlessly integrate repair procedures into current plant processes, taking the weight of the work off of plant employees.
How do MRO Repair Programs help cut costs?
Not only can MRO Repair Programs help cut waste, but they can also help you drastically cut costs. While repairing failed machine spare parts almost always costs less than purchasing new ones, MRO Programs that utilize a Vendor-Neutral Approach to repair can help you save even more. Because MRO Programs that use this approach are bringing so many repairs to their vendor network per month, these programs are able to take advantage of economies of scale and provide preferred pricing to manufacturing clients. This helps you save more than ever before.
Implementing an MRO Repair Program into your current manufacturing processes can not only help you hit sustainability goals, but it can also help you stay within budget. Interested in learning more about how an MRO Repair Program could fit your needs? Contact us at email@example.com.
