Rodem Assists with Alfa Laval Product Maintenance Training at $2 Billion Facility
Rodem recently assisted with Alfa Laval Product Maintenance Training for newly hired Maintenance Supervisors at the largest pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in the US. This facility is being constructed in North Carolina at a cost of $2 Billion.
The Engineering firm specified a large number of Alfa Laval products and the new Maintenance Group needed training. That’s where Rodem stepped in! As the facility is still under construction, there were no Maintenance Shop facilities available. We improvised and held the 2 day training at an offsite facility and put our Rodem Garner location to use for some hands-on sessions. Both Maintenance Supervisors and Maintenance Management were onsite and are charged with taking this info back to the Maintenance Techs upon hire.
We were joined by our manufacturing partners and experts from Alfa Laval. Kurt Kjellerup from Alfa Laval in Kolding, Denmark hosted the training on Sanitary Centrifugal Pumps, Sanitary Lobe Pumps and Tank Cleaning Equipment. Kristi Smith from Alfa Laval Heat Exchanger Service Division based in Charlotte, NC covered the training on Plate Heat Exchangers. Mark Ream, Business Development Manager with Alfa Laval Service Division in Kenosha was also on hand for corporate support.
Our Account Manager received this comment from the customer after the training:
“I WANTED TO TAKE THE TIME TO THANK YOU FOR THE EFFORT IN PUTTING ALL OF THIS TRAINING TOGETHER FOR US. I KNOW IT TOOK A GOOD BIT OF PLANNING. IT WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AND VERY WELL STRUCTURED. WE GOT A LOT OUT OF IT AS A GROUP. THANKS AGAIN”
We are currently putting together recommended spare parts lists for all the Alfa Laval Products, including Centrifugal and PD Pumps, Tank Cleaning Devices and Heat Exchangers being supplied to this new pharmaceutical facility. Rodem is set up and excited to support this facility with all of their Alfa Laval product needs! We want to thank our friends at Alfa Laval for partnering with us to provide this great training opportunity to the end users. We love to bring industry leading resources and expertise to our customers to help them maintain and operate smart sanitary solutions!
