What We Do
Quebecor World International was facing a downsizing of production and operations. While site managers concentrated their efforts on the transfer of customer orders and equipment, HUNT Property Solutions was contracted to perform a multi-plant building condition assessment and operations cost analysis. The project was part of a restructuring of building maintenance and energy reduction to minimize costs at selected sites throughout North America. HPS completed a series of site inspections and developed a comprehensive facility assessment, combining facility maintenance, energy and engineering initiatives to provide an aggressive operations and cost reduction program for seven QWI locations totaling 3.5 million square feet.
How We Help
Beginning in March 2006, the HPS maintenance operations reduction program was implemented to include sites in TN, CT, WI, and ON, QC in Canada. The program would provide a target savings of $701,000 during the first year of operation. Savings were derived from energy reduction initiatives, contract renegotiations, and restructured site services. This initiative met or exceeded goals for the three year program, and provided QWI with documented results and reductions that totaled $3M. HPS also provided specialized systems and practices developed for plant closures to supply additional cost reductions.
