Preventive maintenance solution for Schweppes Suntory

08 June 2018

Schweppes Suntory recently signed a ‘Time & Material’ contract with the Sidel Group to maintain equipment at its plant in Spain. 

The agreement covers the provision of preventive maintenance for a Sidel aseptic filler, along with a capper and cap feeder. The machinery is used for the bottling of a soft drink produced in different formats and flavours.

The ‘contract ensures that a range of pre-determined related site activities are undertaken by Sidel on the Schweppes Suntory equipment and a list of spare parts is provided after every 3,000 hours of production. This allows the company to accurately schedule and execute its preventive maintenance according to a predefined operational period and the scope of supply. In this way, the value of the equipment can be maintained throughout its lifecycle, downtime is minimised and the organisation gains control of maintenance costs over time. The agreement also covers the provision of 24/7 hotline assistance.
