CANTON, MA: Although economists are reporting recovery in the manufacturing sector, plant and lab closures are still a common occurrence. EquipNet has created The Facility Closure Resource Center to help biotech, chemical, pharmaceutical, and consumer processing and packaging companies prepare to shut the doors of a plant or lab facility. This multimedia microsite is the latest addition to EquipNet’s growing online library of industrial asset management resources.
As the world’s leading provider of surplus asset management sales and solutions for more than a decade, EquipNet has worked with small and large companies to help them make the most of their valuable assets when closing a facility. The EquipNet Facility Closure Resource Center provides a wealth of practical information and a forum for visitors to benefit from that expertise.
The new microsite includes two free eBooks, a video, and numerous case studies outlining the success stories of companies who’ve prepared well and used their expensive equipment to recover much-needed cash during a facility closure.
EquipNet’s Vice President of Corporate Marketing, Matt Smith, wants companies facing a plant or lab closure to understand the primary purpose of the Facility Closure Resource Center. “It’s all about preparation,” says Smith. “Even if a company is not closing a site tomorrow, the Facility Closure Resource Center has compiled EquipNet’s expertise to help them educate themselves and prepare for the possibility.”
EquipNet is a leading provider of proactive asset management solutions and services to leading corporations in the biotech, pharmaceutical, chemical, and consumer packaged goods industries, such as Merck, Novartis, Unilever and many others. EquipNet’s vision is to revolutionize the way companies manage their surplus assets by maximizing financial returns and minimizing the risks associated with idle capital assets.
