Our decades of experience in maintenance and reliability engineering, paired with our continual research into the evolving science around the discipline, gives us a unique perspective — one that is both granular and global in scope.

Performance Consulting Associates, Inc. (PCA), a leading provider of maintenance, storeroom and asset management solutions, today announced it will be presenting one of its customer success stories — an engagement at the Milliken Chemical plant in Blacksburg, SC — at the 24th Annual Maintenance and Reliability Conference (MARCON), March 9-12, 2020 in Knoxville. PCA will co-present the story with Milliken Reliability Project & MRO Supply Manager Kyle Bailey, CMRP. The presentation is slated for Thursday, March 12, from 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM in Room 301 AB.

“MARCON is designed to encourage attendees to collaborate one-on-one with exhibitors, and PCA works all year to ensure we have fresh insights to share with booth visitors,” said PCA President and CEO Richard “Dick” DeFazio. “Our decades of experience in maintenance and reliability engineering, paired with our continual research into the evolving science around the discipline, gives us a unique perspective — one that is both granular and global in scope.”

At the event, PCA experts will share maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) best practices and real-world examples — including the Milliken project — of how the firm helps organizations implement them with lasting success.

“Before the PCA partnership, we had inefficient, ad-hoc organization, with critical spare parts in three different places that were not designed to hold them,” says Bailey. “After the PCA project, all inventoried parts are in a secure, controlled area with high-definition cameras guarding them. We are procuring and stocking what our plant’s technicians and managers use, ensuring a better than 95 percent probability the right part will be there when they need it.”

At Marcon, PCA will also host an exhibit at booth #27. PCA looks forward to meeting with MARCON attendees, sharing updates on new and emerging technologies and methods, and discussing how firms can achieve stellar results in their own operations.
