Spidex is pleased to announce that Malteries Soufflet has opted to retain and upgrade Mainsaver CMMS following last year’s acquisition of Shobnall Maltings in Burton-on-Trent.
Shobnall Maltings (previously owned by Molson Coors) has used Mainsaver CMMS to record and schedule maintenance activities for well over a decade. However the system, well-liked by the site’s engineers, had not been upgraded for some time. The change of ownership offered a means to access the latest technology available in Mainsaver version 11.6 whilst retaining departmental continuity in ongoing day-to-day usage of the core Mainsaver modules.
Site Engineering Manager Steve Holyoake initiated the upgrade project. “Mainsaver has been integral to the engineering department for years” he says.
“The data that Mainsaver produces has allowed us to show improvements in ‘Mean Time Between Failure’ by targeting our worst performing assets with focused reliability studies. This has reduced maintenance costs for the business while continuing with preventative maintenance schedules and other improvement activities.”
Along with the upgrade comes a new helpdesk support contract with Spidex, which gives Soufflet’s Mainsaver users access to technical assistance via phone, email and web portal.
The addition of Shobnall means that Soufflet now owns 27 maltings in Europe, South America and Asia with a total annual production capacity of 2,273,000 tonnes.
Malteries Soufflet is a division of Soufflet Group. Soufflet is France’s largest private buyer of cereal crops, one of Europe’s largest wheat milling companies and a leading manufacturer of baked goods. The company employs more than 7,400 staff across 18 countries.
