On the evening of 10 October, the Maintenance Award Austria 2018 was presented in a festive setting. The Hirschmann Automotive maintenance team led by Business Process Manager Thomas Bertsch and Maintenance Leader Wolfgang Märk were awarded second place.
The prize for the most excellent maintenance in Austria was established in 2011 and is awarded annually at the International Forum for Industrial Maintenance (ÖVIA Congress). The prize is awarded to companies that have successfully completed the transition from classic maintenance to life cycle-oriented, integrated plant management. The aim of the Maintenance Award Austria is to take account of the importance of maintenance and to recognise its contribution to the competitiveness of companies. This means that the public is also paying greater attention to maintenance. The benefit for the participating companies lies in a detailed analysis of the maintenance and in the determination of optimisation potentials. The winners will serve as a benchmark and best practice example for other plant operators.
