What are Assets?

Assets are required for the overall function of an organization and are critical to every organization's performance. In case of process industries, which run 365 days a year, 7 days a week and 24 hours a day, the need for upkeep of Assets is of prime importance. Thus, management of Assets is the top-most priority for the performance and growth of the industry.

Maintenance, which has been a non-core area for a process plant, is an integral area, which has to be looked in for better plant performance. Maintenance of equipment is of primary importance for every process plant. Hofincons ensures that these equipments are maintained well so that the plant is available for production.

In the past, companies have been dedicating more time, manpower and cost on maintaining these equipment to make them functional. Over a period of time the competition in the market place has forced companies to focus their attention on assets and subsequently production; outsourcing has come into the fray.

This emerging and alarming scenario has necessitated a paradigm shift. Companies are now implementing outsourcing to a professional organization; thereby they can concentrate more on the core areas of the business and expansion to provide better, quality and competitive products to their customer.

The change is one of perspective - overall plant health rather than individual assets. Proactive, not reactive; preventive, not breakdown. There is now an intense need to look at or treat industrial asset management solutions as a whole rather than as isolated asset or equipment related problems.

Hofincons is the pioneer in providing asset management services to a variety of clients from steel to ceramics industries for the past 28 years.
