Companies in the chemical industry are faced with diverse challenges like avoidance of downtime or compliance with applicable standards. Additionally, the strong focus on greening, automation of order processes and efficiency increase let digitalization play an important role in this sector. The latest techniques and technologies are needed to automate the production processes and keep them safe. Moreover, quality must be monitored around the clock.
We understand that your people are your most important asset and they need to be protected. In a growing number of countries, health and safety requirements are increasingly imposed by legislation and regulations. To ensure this personnel and material safety, only the very best and certified seals, valves, hoses, instruments and PPE should be used. Because nothing less than 100% perfection is good enough for the chemical industry.
In chemical plants, high pressure, high temperatures and hazardous liquids and gases place extreme demands on equipment. Global specialist ERIKS reliably supplies you with the quality you need. Our extensive stock and local production units ensure fast deliveries. In addition, we check individual parts on site, do quality controls in our test facilities and continuously monitor your system.
Minimisation of downtimes and reducing costs through inventory optimisation
Minimisation of downtimes and reducing costs are major challenges for the chemical industry. As ERIKS does not just offer spare parts, we analyse your purchasing and inventory data to increase the efficiency of your purchasing processes. We advise you on how to reduce the number of suppliers and show you which essential components you need to have in stock. Inventory optimisation minimises downtime, reduces your capital requirements throughout the process chain and enables you to meet your targets.
The supply systems specially developed by ERIKS ensure optimum availability. There is increasing integration in the chain - which makes standardisation of products and processes possible. Our Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) system enables you to minimise your working capital and still have the stock you need at all times. When you leave the management of your stock to ERIKS, you always have the required mechanical engineering components in your own warehouse. Your administration and your total cost of ownership (TCO) are markedly reduced.
Services - prevention is better than cure
Keeping your assets operational and producing flawlessly requires routine maintenance and inspections. We offer you numerous possibilities for keeping your uptime as high as possible:
