Currently, the United States represents the world’s largest market for gypsum products. Factors like strong recovery in building construction, spending in both developed and emerging markets, and large-scale industrialization are expected to drive this market in the short and medium terms.

With this impressive market growth, building products manufacturers need their equipment operating at peak performance to meet tight production schedules and full performance targets. In continuous flow plants, performance is measured on equipment utilization and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). If a plant’s maintenance program doesn’t meet its requirements, reliability and plant performance suffer.

We Keep Production Moving

It’s a fact, poorly maintained equipment breaks down more often, causing costly unplanned downtime and wreaking havoc with delivery schedules. We understand executing reliability strategies to increase uptime and lower costs can be challenging. As a leading industrial maintenance provider for building product manufacturers, ATS has the experience and solutions to solve those problems for you.

In highly mechanical environments like building products manufacturing, alignment procedures, lubrication programs, belt installations and vibration monitoring are just some of the tasks our skilled technicians perform as part of our maintenance programs. We provide tailored solutions for mills, wet-ends, take-offs, kilns/dryers, bundlers, and both wet and dry transfer systems.
