Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 11, 2005
KBC Advanced Technologies (KBC), the Center for Process Plant Management (CPPM), and TTS Performance Systems, Inc. (TTS) have formed a strategic alliance with the goal of helping our clients achieve and sustain Operational Excellence (OpX) through the integrated use of people, information and technology best practices and solutions.
In the current environment of high oil-product demand, companies are focusing on maximizing the capability of their existing process plant assets through the achievement of a safe, reliable, and, consequently, more profitable operation. This is of particular importance today given the high price of energy and the shortage of capacity in the HPI.
Peter Close, CEO of KBC, commented “We are very pleased to have developed this working relationship with CPPM and TTS. Jack Pankoff, President of CPPM and TTS, and I share a common vision for combining our companies’ experience and expertise to support our clients and empower them to release the latent potential within their businesses. CPPM’s Production Centered Plant Operational Excellence (OpX) Model and TTS’s Shift Team Effectiveness Standard combine with KBC’s Operational Best Practice Business Processes to equip customers’ plant organizations with the knowledge and understanding needed to realize their hidden value potential.”
Jack Pankoff commented, “Together KBC, CPPM, and TTS provide our clients a single source for all services required to achieve sustainable plant performance and profits. We work with clients to link the company’s business strategy to a plant manufacturing strategy. Our combined comprehensive range of services delivers a total manufacturing solution.”
