On the 20th to 22nd of June, Manchester based condition monitoring specialist SPM Instrument UK Ltd. hosted a meeting with the CEO of SPM International and Managing Directors of its fourteen subsidiaries in Europe, USA, Singapore, and India.
The biannual SPM Management meeting is an integral component of the SPM International corporate structure and an important part in setting the course for the further development of the Group and its activities. The meeting is an itinerant event which the different SPM companies take turns organizing. This time, SPM Instrument UK was chosen to host the meeting, held at the Hilton in Manchester and rounded off with a social event at the Lakeside Hotel & Spa in Newby Bridge.
This year’s Management meeting was a follow-up after a period of intense activity in 2014 and 2015 when SPM Instrument launched multiple important condition monitoring products to the worldwide market. Senior management colleagues from all SPM subsidiaries attended the event to reflect on the past couple of years, discuss future strategies and develop a strong business plan for the coming years, enabling the Group to unify sales and marketing efforts.
‘In a global, competitive market, it is essential of course that business opportunities are recognized and acted on. Our product portfolio is stronger than ever and will continue to develop as we align innovation efforts with business strategies. The Management meetings are an important and much- appreciated opportunity for us to focus on our joint development and continued growth in the markets where the Group is active’, says Stan Jackson, Managing Director of SPM Instrument UK.
In today’s competitive climate, many industries are under pressure to continuously reduce operating costs and improve the cost effectiveness of their production. A condition-based maintenance strategy with a well-managed condition monitoring program can be a crucial piece of that puzzle. Yet, the condition monitoring industry is largely immature.
‘As a leading condition monitoring technology and services provider, SPM Instrument is in a position to offer the most cost effective solutions with the latest technologies available. I believe that it is very important that SPM continues to lead the way, not only in product and technological development but also that SPM keeps and maintains the core and strength of a very successful, family-owned business’, Stan Jackson says.
SPM Instrument is the inventor of the SPM HD® shock pulse technology for condition monitoring of industrial machinery. In 2015, this revolutionary technology was joined by HD ENV®, a new groundbreaking vibration monitoring technology based on the same patented algorithms for digital signal processing. Together, these technologies offer a complete condition monitoring solution for typical machine problems - such as bearing and gear damage, unbalance or misalignment - providing forewarning times considerably longer than those offered by other monitoring technologies.
