A food and beverage organization’s production capabilities are highly dependent on the state of its capital assets. The goal of any organization is to maximize uptime.

Join Food and Beverage Engineering and Maintenance on August 29 as we discuss with a panel of experts how to leverage the availability of key production assets to meet quotas and maintain profit margins.

Moderated by Editor, Mario Cywinski, MRO and Food and Beverage magazines, this half-day educational forum allows maintenance, reliability and maintenance professionals in the Food and Beverage sector to learn techniques to easily identify an asset issue, and react to solve problems, preventing unexpected and costly breakdowns.
