Comprehensive Resource and Facilities Management

The challenge

A major manufacturer of heavy-duty engines needed a single supplier to provide facilities and resource management services at one of its manufacturing locations.

The project challenges are:

  • This business required that the supplier be able to provide both wastewater management and integrated waste services, including waste collection, transportation, recycling and disposal.
  • In addition, this client wanted the supplier to manage on-site and contract labor associated with these services.
  • ​As part of any contract, the client requested that the supplier provide a guaranteed savings over the cost of its in-house waste management operations.
