Preventive maintenance services ensure that ICM operational performance is secured whilst downtime costs and lost sales are minimized.
In 2009, the Frigoglass Customer Service Organization was reconfigured into a new separate business unit, Frigoserve. The need for enhanced focus and prioritization derived from increased customer requirements for maximizing ICM asset utilization, optimization of operational costs and improvement of service level quality; in some cases, from outsourcing the entire cold drink operations thus enabling beverage companies to focus on core business.
Commencing in January 2009, Frigoserve has begun consolidating its operations in Europe with Asia and Africa integration taking place in 2011 & 2012 respectively.
In each one of Frigoserve operations highly skilled management and administration personnel is in place in order to ensure best-in-class operations through account management, service network management and continuous improvement, spare parts management and administration.
At the Head Office, the Services Commercial Development, Technical Services and Customer Relations Functions are working together with local Frigoserve Operations worldwide on new business opportunities, network development and improvement and effective customer complain resolution, securing operational excellence.
