Annual maintenance Contract (AMC)

Annual maintenance Contract (AMC)

In order to solve these problems and ensure that maintenance is performed as intended and required, many manufacturers work with outsourced providers and sign an annual maintenance contract. An annual maintenance contract, or contract maintenance agreement, is a business arrangement for ongoing maintenance, agreed on by the manufacturing facility and a service provider.

As opposed to ad-hoc or emergency maintenance services, industrial contract maintenance covers all aspects of maintenance on a plant’s critical assets, including:

  • Scheduled preventive maintenance
  • Regular checkups and diagnostics
  • Emergency repairs
  • A dedicated workforce of skilled, certified technicians
  • Documentation and process development

In addition, a comprehensive annual maintenance contract can include smart technology implementation, training of the existing workforce, safety training, procedure implementation and more.
