The power of integrated maintenance and safety processes
Integrating the maintenance and safety processes in one system is important for Arteco for multiple reasons, Arne Laurijssen explains. He is the Environmental Health and Safety Manager at the joint venture of Total Belgium and Chevron. “System integration helps us realise operational excellence.”
In the factory in Schoten (B), Arteco produces coolants for engines. Arteco mixes base fluids, different additives and demineralised water into the desired coolant. This is then sent to buyers all around the globe in a highly concentrated form, where it is then mixed into the end product. The factory in Schoten does make the end product for the European market. Arteco mainly sells to the automotive industry.
Laurijssen: “Arteco is a small organisation that has to meet the highest industry standards. Our customers set high quality demands and there is no room for deviations. An integrated management system gives us the necessary guarantees. It helps us realise operational excellence, guarantee the continuity of our business and translate our company values into hard facts.”
