The Challenge

Meet sharp rise in production demand and upgrade outdated equipment

One of the leading car manufacturers in Spain had several paint shops for their car manufacturing process. Some of these facilities were underused and the decision to dismantle them was made.

However, the automobile industry began to grow in Spain and they needed the facilities again, but the temperature control equipment - essential during the painting process - was not fit to deal with the increased level of production that was necessary, nor was it able to cope with the Spanish summer heat.

The customer needed a quick solution to satisfy the peak demand but also the breathing space to decide what equipment to invest in for the future.

The Impact

Costs savings and production improvements point customer in right direction for future

The economic savings made from a reduction in maintenance and energy usage were of real significance. So much so that the customer opted out of purchasing equipment and even some of their existing cooling that was in use.

Instead, they chose to hire our temporary solutions, giving them the peace of mind to continue to press forward with their plans for a booming industry.

"Aggreko was fast, efficient and they adapted to our specific needs."
