The client and challenge
Our client, a multinational manufacturer of medical devices, pharmaceutical and consumer packaged goods, was planning a $301 million plant expansion in Jacksonville, Florida, to refurbish existing lines and increase production of its contact lens line. It required supplemental talent to support and sustain existing projects and conduct the expansion, allowing the client to continue focusing on crucial R&D activity without losing momentum.
The EASi solution
EASi created a multi-pronged solution to meet the client’s business challenges. We provided qualified people with specific competencies, such as engineers and technicians, to support its plant expansion and to design, develop and troubleshoot for PLC controls engineering, increased production capacity, and product and technology development and support. For one project, EASi provided controls engineering support for its automation level four redesign and upgrade to include detail engineering support.
Bringing the EASi team onboard allowed the client to manage its workforce resources to achieve progress on existing work, upgrade equipment and invest in R&D all while conducting the expansion. EASi helped maximize client resources as well as improve processes and controls in many aspects of the company.
