Ardagh relies on GEM Energy HVAC expertise to maintain full production
GEM Energy cares for nearly 200 pieces of equipment at the Ardagh Group’s Whitehouse, Ohio location under a Preventive Maintenance agreement. It entails quarterly scheduled visits where GEM Energy service technicians inspect and check equipment to ensure it is operating properly and running at peak efficiency including:
• AC units in the summer • Air handlers
• Heating units in the winter • Chillers
• Make-up air units • Boilers
• Exhaust fans • Pumps
• Change air filters • Cooling towers
• Clean condenser coils • Backflow preventers
• Roof top units • Building controls systems
Not only does the plant receive regular maintenance visits, but is able to call GEM Energy 24/7 for a service technician’s visit in case of an emergency or immediate need. With a Preventive Maintenance agreement, a technician is guaranteed on site in three hours or less from the time dispatch is notified.
The facility – which runs shifts 7 days a week, 24 hours a day – has the advantage of two types of Preventive Maintenance agreements: standard and comprehensive. Equipment that isn’t essential to daily operations falls under a standard Preventive Maintenance agreement meaning that the equipment is inspected/ serviced on a regular basis to ensure proper operation, lubrication and efficiency.
However, equipment that is essential to the facility’s production lines is maintained under a comprehensive preventive maintenance agreement, meaning that the customer has no additional costs if the equipment breaks down, requires repairs or needs maintenance attention.
