ATS helps flood victims: Factory maintenance company creates triage centers to repair and restart plants in Midwest.
While business losses are still being tallied from missed rail and truck deliveries, idled barges, closed plants and shutdown factories, ATS cites the extremely expensive cost of stopped production, at an average $22,000 per minute. Flooded factories are also creating an environmental risk, as chemicals and other toxins are released. ATS pioneered the factory asset service business two decades ago, and today is the leading company providing managed services for production equipment maintenance and industrial parts repair for manufacturers.
ATS has created a hotline for plants and factories needing triage repair services at 800.701.8002.
ATS most recently was on the team rebuilding the Caterpillar factory in Oxford, MS that was destroyed by a tornado earlier this spring. The company started as a spin-off from Caterpillar Inc. in 1985, creating a niche as the firm that large manufacturers such as Johnson & Johnson, Honda and Fortune Brands turn to for outsourcing the care and maintenance of factory assets. ATS also has operations in Mexico and the United Kingdom, and is making plans to enter China.
ATS makes factories run better. Advanced Technology Services, Inc. (ATS) improves productivity and profitability for many of the world's most respected manufacturers through the managed services of production equipment maintenance, information technology and industrial parts repair. Founded in 1985, ATS employs over 2,200 people across the US and is a member of the National Association of Manufacturers. ATS is headquartered in Peoria, IL with offices and services centers located in Greenville, SC, Chicago, IL, Detroit, MI, Monterrey, Mexico and the United Kingdom.
