Our mutual goal is to reduce planned downtime to the absolute minimum and avoid unplanned downtime. A good spare parts inventory and proper preventative maintenance are the basic "blocking and tackling" of reliable VFFS machine upkeep.
Several of our service technicians have been with Rovema for 20+ years and their knowledge of our baggers and their capabilities is priceless, so we understand the gut-wrenching feeling when an experienced employee moves on to a different opportunity.
Plant operator or maintenance team retention is a common challenge for many CPG companies - losing valuable machine knowledge often translates to loss machine and plant efficiency.
Sure, you've got operators that learned from someone that learned from someone that attended the original commissioning training. That's what typically happens with turnover in plants.
Your maintenance team is strong too. They know machines and can figure out what to do.
What if you had a maintenance team member and a key line leader that were both trained and certified by the Rovema factory. Maybe even certified in programming the machine? We want to get your maintenance and operator teams up to speed with hands on training with a certified Rovema Technician.
You'd cut your break fix response time to the length of the walk across the factory, you'd know your set-ups and recipes are optimized and that the machine is working at peak efficiency.
Most customers tell us that the cost of downtime is measured in thousands of dollars/hour. That's expensive. Much more so than training.
We've got programs that can not only reduce downtime and improve line operations for your organization, but they can be a great employee benefit too. It's a way to recognize key and valued workers with an exciting opportunity.
And in today's market, keeping top workers happy is critically important - that it improves your results is icing on that cake!
We've got some great programs to make that happen. This video has the highlights.
