Real estate and facilities professionals face numerous challenges when trying to get the most out of their facility’s spend. Cost reduction, productivity, and revenue acceleration are now basic expectations for every facilities management (FM) program.
At EFS, we understand that companies are looking for a partner who can offer more, so we approach every FM program with full accountability and a steady drive to exceed client expectations.
From integrated facilities and project management solutions to energy management outsourcing, EFS has the people, processes, tools, and technology to deliver sustainable results each and every time.
A large beverage manufacturing plant identified that they were spending much more time and money managing their buildings and grounds than they had previously thought and budgeted.
After a thorough review and analysis, EFS implemented an Integrated Facilities Management (IFM) program that helped control costs and overall quality of their facilities, and also reduced the number of suppliers being used from 34 to 1.
EFS also aligned processes and procedures with the client’s Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards and ISO requirements. We also introduced a new Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS). This new CMMS captures all work order data and provides instant access to reports.
EFS completed a full-scale energy audit. As a result, two of the three air compressors that previously ran constantly were adjusted, considerably cutting energy consumption and providing $100,000 per year in annual electrical savings.
The IFM program EFS implemented was a huge success. Not only did it favorably drive overall cost control measures, it helped establish a preferred manufacturing environment for the client, meeting GMP and ISO standards.
