In this endeavour, plant integrity, reliability and cost efficiency were of paramount importance. “I-care’s approach fits in perfectly with the requirements we have for modern maintenance management systems,” say Lanxess employees Richard Schrayßhuen, Procurement Manager, and Andreas Kemnitz, Head of Central Maintenance.

Thanks to I-care’s “think global, act local” approach, Lanxess’ corporate-driven rollout will get a solid local footprint. “On the basis of global plans, we always aim to draw up guidelines with as much local relevance as possible,” says I-care’s Manuel Geier, Customer Care Manager. “Take, for example, criticality or turnaround management. Only by identifying and analysing processes at the local level can you implement pragmatic improvements. Fortunately, this way of working dovetails nicely with Lanxess’ asset management concept, making us extremely keen to enter into this alliance.”
