STOCKHOLM, Nov. 10, 2020
STOCKHOLM, Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- NKT has decided to insource its maintenance after the successful transformation of maintenance operations performed by Quant. The decision concerns five sites in Sweden, Poland, Denmark, and Czech Republic. The contract with the NKT site in Karlskrona is not affected by the decision. The insourcing will be effective as of 30 June 2021. Quant will reduce its contract portfolio value with EUR 9.2 million in its quarterly report for the fourth quarter of 2020.
After three years of partnership, Quant and NKT have achieved main agreed objectives. The objectives were to leverage on Quant's proven maintenance concept to enhance safety culture and performance, increase technical availability for bottleneck machines and improve total maintenance cost per ton produced per site.
"During the three years of partnership, we have realized performance improvements and have today an improved way of working at all sites with regards to maintenance. It is now time to continue this change journey internally. This change of our way of working would not have been achievable in this short time, without Quant as a driver of the transformation" says Tue Vaaben, SVP Head of operations Applications at NKT.
Quant will continue to manage and develop the maintenance at the respective sites until 30 June 2021 to ensure finalization and smooth handover of maintenance operations to NKT.
