Lean manufacturing has driven inventory to practically zero and eliminated supply chain buffers. Product quality and safety are non-negotiable. The new model launch cadence is increasing. Automation is driving down costs, yet demanding higher technical support capabilities.

This is 21st century automotive manufacturing. It’s a globally competitive industry where margins are thin. Every manufacturer succeeds or fails on their ability to give customers exactly what they want, when they need it — and at a lower price than the competition. Survival depends on maintaining focus.

Advanced Technical Skills for Complex Equipment

Maintenance is complex in the modern, capital-intensive automotive plant. Automated machinery needs preventative and predictive maintenance from technicians who understand technology. Robots, machine vision and automated inspection systems need advanced skills that are in short supply in today’s aging workforce. ATS’ skilled maintenance technicians are well versed in both the traditional mechanical and electronic trades, as well as the latest control technologies.

Our automotive factory maintenance solutions are tailored to your unique processes and needs. In the complex, fast-paced and highly technical modern automotive facility, a tailored solution is the best way to successfully help you achieve your productivity objectives. We offer a full suite of industrial maintenance services including preventive maintenance, predictive maintenance implementation and analysis, asset and inventory management and parts repair services. We can provide only the select services you need, or work with you to develop a fully integrated maintenance solution.

Allowing us to focus on maintenance takes pressure off the plant manager so they can focus on other core priorities. ATS’ factory maintenance solution lifts this burden, using industry best practices to maximize overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) while controlling costs and providing continuous improvement.
