Maverick Technologies launches PlantFloor24

Bringing much-needed manufacturing services and solutions

ISA Executive Director and CEO, Patrick Gouhin, attended the invitation-only event at Maverick Technologies headquarters in Columbia, Ill., that launched the grand opening of their 24/7 Global Operations Center. Nearly 100 people were present to witness the ribbon-cutting ceremony and formal launch of PlantFloor24. PlantFloor24 is the world's first full-service, platform-independent, 24/7 hardware, software, and process support solution. PlantFloor24 grew out of Maverick's Strategic Manufacturing Solutions and Operational Consulting offerings and will potentially change how plants maintain, monitor, and optimize their assets. Maverick presented a case for how PlantFloor24 will allow manufacturers to reduce operational costs, augment staff with multidisciplinary skills, and improve asset management.

PlantFloor24 will be a lifeline for manufacturing facilities. "This solution really comprises a spectrum of offerings," said Peter Esparrago, senior consultant. "On one end, you have manufacturers that will outsource a large portion of their automation services, and on the other you have manufacturers that are just looking for resource augmentation."

"It's a fully secure operational center with remote monitoring, biometric hand scans, backup generators, and war-room style views into operations," added Kirk Norris, senior vice president of Strategic Manufacturing Solutions.


Maverick CEO and Founder Paul Galeski provided an overview of the new full-service manufacturing support solution as well as a company history. Gouhin commented that, "Maverick continues to demonstrate thought leadership in industrial automation by bringing the services and solutions to market that American manufacturers need."
