CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Brett Minges, POLARIS Vice President of Sales, said POLARIS’ ISO 17025 A2LA accreditation is evidence that the laboratory can provide the quality testing, accurate results and actionable maintenance recommendations necessary to support corporate maintenance practices and create a positive impact on the bottom line.


“Using accurate and reliable fluid analysis data to reduce downtime, improve productivity and increase equipment reliability can affect the success of maintenance programming tremendously,” Minges said. “To know that Oldcastle Materials has chosen POLARIS as its sole source for providing these services creates an exciting opportunity for both organizations to exceed the already high standards by which they operate.”


According to Ron Piccolo, Oldcastle Vice President of Strategic Sourcing, an extremely user-friendly data management solution and a virtually seamless process for transitioning historical data were also deciding factors in placing the company’s fluid analysis program with POLARIS.


“A partnership with POLARIS LaboratoriesTM creates an exceptional opportunity to easily access and manage the plethora of data that our sampling generates daily.” Piccolo said. “This consolidation of information, along with consistency in testing methods and procedures provides a strong foundation for implementing well-directed maintenance and reliability best practices.”


The leading vertically-integrated supplier of aggregates, asphalt and ready-mix concrete in the country, Oldcastle Materials is a major provider of paving and heavy highway construction services. Each of its eight divisions provides local road and interstate highway paving services to commercial, municipal and residential customers across the country, as well as federal and state agencies.
