“I am very pleased the trial has run well and you have saved us money...I would be happy for you to have a meeting with another site now.”

Chief Engineer, Global Manufacturer

The problem

Existing Lubricant Storage Situation

The site stored 22 products from 6 different manufacturers, with a challenging storage and stock control system.

Potential risks

  • High risk of contamination of food by misapplication
  • Product recall from mineral oil contamination
  • Non-compliance in audit situations
  • Inadequate system of control and dispensing
  • Out of stock situations causing plant stoppage and downtime
  • Frustration and stress from above risks
  • Indirect dealing with manufacturer causing delays and inadequate application knowledge

The solution

Introduction of System8®

A System8® free eight week trial was concluded very successfully on site, saving the customer up to 40% on competitive and superior performance foodgrade products.

The benefits
