Maintenance

MAINTENANCE & AUDIT SERVICES

Are you running at full capacity and require technical assistance and brewery maintenance support?
Brewery Maintenance and Brewery Audits ensure continous production, while increasing your efficiency and Key Performance Indicators (KPI).
Our comprehensive pool of multidisciplinary brewery consultants has enabled AMS to cooperate successfully in more than 30 countries with clients in the beverage industry.

OUR STRENGTH

  • Careful and comprehensive brewery audits executed in co-operation with the client to identify specific requirements
  • Provision of a continuous technical back-up and spare part service system for the production facilities
  • Development of appropriate concepts for long-term investment programmes and CAPEX planning
  • AMS brewery consultants take a holistic view

AMS TECHNICAL AUDIT

Whatever you need, we assign the right brewery consultants to your production site, carefully analysing operations, reviewing production reports, monitoring machines, capturing technical issues and collecting all findings during interviews with operators and maintenance team onsite.
All data are subsequently processed and summarized within the AMS AUDIT REPORT providing clear maintenance instructions, improvement areas, and project proposals.

AMS PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

The AMS AUDIT REPORT is the basis for procurement and maintenance. Our support team prepares comprehensive machinery, equipment and spare part proposals which could be sourced via AMS or suitable suppliers. Applicable OEM maintenance procedures will be always considered.
Once proposed machinery, equipment and spare parts are on site, AMS assigns brewery specialists to implement all measures from the audit report. AMS beverage specialists work closely with your operators and maintenance team to ensure full know-how transfer. Our target is to enable your personnel to become self-sufficient in the medium term.
We propose to conduct the AMS AUDIT six months prior to end of peak season before peak season. The AMS PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE TEAM would be scheduled thereafter during low season.

    SERVICE PROFILE EXPECTED BY OUR CLIENTS

    AMS ENGINEERING comprehensively evaluates all project parameters and where necessary adapts design elements to local laws and regulation or multinational group requirements. During this stage AMS ENGINEERING works closely with AMS or client architects and civil engineers to synchronize process and machinery design with architectural design.

    • Management of a multi-partner design cooperation as well as the integration of a multi-source machinery package.
    • Knowledge of the markets combined with regional competence.
    • Anticipation of technological changes and market developments.

    STRENGTH OF AMS ENGINEERING

Many interfaces but only one integrated automation approach throughout the plant? And everything on time, below budget but over client’s expectations?

    • AMS ENGINEERING as sole planning and design partner for the whole project cycle.
    • Professional independence from individual manufacturers or brands.
    • Application of "state of the art" planning and design techniques and communication systems.
    • A more economic and faster planning cycle.
