In fall 2001, Crown began its pilot of eMaint CMMS at two plant locations. Each plant was up and running on eMaint within a week, with data successfully imported into the system. In a collaborative vendor/client partnership, eMaint worked closely with Crown personnel at the plant and corporate levels to enhance the system to match Crown’s business processes. The success of the two-plant pilot led to a full rollout of eMaint across all plants in the U.S. Beverage Division through 2002, and implementation across all U.S. Food Division plants in 2003.
In addition to the individual plant systems, eMaint provides enterprise-wide consolidation of the data from the plant accounts to enable easy data analysis across the divisions. Since implementing eMaint in 2001, Crown Cork & Seal has expanded its use of eMaint to over 45 locations across four divisions in the U.S., Cambodia, Canada, Jamaica, Malaysia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and Vietnam.
