New contract with ZF in Nanjing, China, for Voith Industrial Services
For an initial duration of three years, industrial services providers are responsible for parts cleaning (for example oil lines, cylinders, valves, water cooling tanks) in the workshop and cleaning activities in the periphery of traffic areas. Furthermore, they carry out technical cleaning and janitorial cleaning activities in the water chiller, heat exchanger and air compressor areas, for example.
At an automotive supplier plant, processes are scheduled tightly and every activity must be carried out with the utmost care and attention. To ensure that processes run smoothly and the employees’ safety is not put at risk, one major focus is on cleaning dirty robots, walkways and work stations regularly and professionally. Technical cleaning in the light of increasingly complex facilities, machines and production processes requires a reliable partner whose core business is providing industrial services and who has extensive knowledge of any processes.
The team of Voith Industrial Services identified safety-relevant risks and facility-related issues at ZF in Nanjing and made an offer including possible solutions. “By means of a test presentation of our services, our customer was able to clearly see the difference between before and after – and was convinced of our performance. We are delighted about the contract and the customer’s confidence”, said Jun Lei, Site Manager at Voith Industrial Services in Nanjing, China.
