Cement producer puts focus on proactive maintenance with SKF solutions
Gothenburg, Sweden, 30 June, 2014: SKF announced that Argos, one of the largest cement producers in Latin America, has chosen SKF to provide a broad range of engineering products (SKF bearings) and services for its operations in Colombia over the next three years.
“SKF has an extensive partnership to support Argos in maximising the utilisation and reliability of its assets, thereby achieving its business objectives,” said Vartan Vartanian, President, SKF Industrial Market, Regional Sales and Service. “We at SKF aim to be a trusted advisor to Argos through all of its operations.”
SKF provide Argos with condition-based maintenance services, mechanical services, reliability engineering services and condition monitoring solutions. This will support Argos to take a ‘proactive maintenance’ approach to ensuring its conveyors, gearboxes and mills operate reliably in its four biggest facilities in Colombia.
In addition to this, as part of a renewed ‘trouble-free operation’ corporate supply agreement, SKF will provide everything from SKF bearings, housings and seals to training and application engineering, to support Argos’ operations in 10 plants throughout Colombia. Argos has expanded the scope of this agreement to include seals and more bearing products than SKF had supplied previously.
