Greenville, SC - MaintainIT, a Facility and Plant Maintenance Services Company, is pleased to announce they have formed a professional alliance with Lean Manufacturing Solutions Partnership, Inc. (LMSPI).

LMSPI is a Lean Manufacturing Implementation Resource and together with MaintainIT will focus on improving manufacturing performance, creating value, and strengthening the presence of manufacturing in South Carolina. To date, results for LMSPI’s manufacturing partners include sustainable, annualized, bottom-line improvements in excess of $70,000,000 with an average 2,880% return on investment.

“Threats to South Carolina manufacturing such as offshore manufacturing, inflation, piece pricing, and rising costs of business (health care, energy, transportation, and commodities) are real,” says Jason Manarchuck, LMSPI’s Marketing Director. “MaintainIT joins us in our mission to counter these threats by partnering with manufacturers to solve their biggest problems and focus on improving business performance. Creating a culture of problem-solving leverages manufacturing problems into competitive advantages. The result is reducing manufacturing costs, improving product quality, reducing lead times, and increasing bottom-line profits for local manufacturers.”

“A critical factor for a successful lean manufacturing implementation is reliable equipment,” says James Rogers, Vice President and Principal with MaintainIT. “Our partnership with LMSPI will provide customers the continuous and comprehensive plant services needed to sustain the manufacturing improvements in support of the manufacturing mission. This is a decisive strategy; one that will strengthen the value of manufacturing in South Carolina.”
