After ten years in the lubrication management market, Lubrigard has condensed all their knowledge and experience into the JumpStart program. Jumpstart is an on-line self-assessment system that provides businesses with a comprehensive world-class lubrication “blueprint” to make your lubrication management program a reality now.
JumpStart simply requires plant managers to answer 30 questions about their current lubrication practices, answer five key financial questions, and then select the lubrication products that are part of their world-class lubrication vision. Once completed they receive a comprehensive 50 page report outlining the gap between their current practices and world-class practices, and the financial model demonstrating the major cost savings they will reap from implementing the program.
The reality in North America is that a lot of companies have been running inefficiently, and as a result they have become targets for takeover by global corporations. Bill Quesnel, president of Lubrigard Ltd, states, “In my 20 years in this industry I’ve seen this happen dozens of times, in cement, pulp and paper, mining and the steel industry, just to name a few.” Lubrication Management is the low-hanging fruit, when it comes to waste reduction in a plant. “The customers we’ve worked with we have demonstrated Internal Rate of Returns (IRR) of over 200% from implementing our world-class lubrication programs”, says Bill. "These programs are something that can be implemented in less than six months time, and save the average company hundreds of thousands of dollars per year."
In the past Lubrigard used to conduct major lubrication audits of plants that took weeks to complete. “Buy-in to an expensive on-site audit was a major hurdle for clients”, says Bill, and often the audits were so comprehensive that clients were overwhelmed with the recommendations and often little improvement actually got accomplished. Jumpstart streamlines the assessment process, and provides the client with a comprehensive, but concise blueprint of what is required. The challenge was to digest all the lubrication knowledge Lubrigard has gained in a decade and present it to a client in a format where they could complete their own assessment in under an hour. “With Jumpstart, we’ve accomplished that”, says Bill.
