Acoem widens its Industry 4.0 reliability services capabilities in North America with the integration of Reliability Point
Acoem’s vision of becoming the world leader in Industry 4.0 reliability solutions and services took another leap forward this week with the acquisition of the Reliability division of US asset Integrity and Reliability company, Reliability Point.
Reliability Point, under the leadership of its President, Robert Arnold, has been providing the US market with reliability based proactive maintenance and condition monitoring services and solutions from its headquarters in Baton Rouge, Louisiana for more than quarter of a century. Its close and productive working relationship with Acoem began over 20 years ago, through its distribution and use of VibrAlign-branded condition monitoring, shaft alignment and machinery diagnostics equipment. VibrAlign, now part of the Acoem Group, began serving the US market in 1983.
Leveraging services digitalisation through Artificial Intelligence for augmented mechanics.
For Acoem, the decision to fold Reliability Point into the company was clear cut. It will allow the company to build its reliability service capabilities across the US, provide greater support to its customers, and work with a team that is highly experienced in digitised reliability solutions, automated diagnostics and remote access data analysis.
As the world evolves towards Industry 4.0, Acoem is continually looking at new ways to enhance its product and service offering to ensure that its customers can protect their critical rotating assets, extend the life of their machinery and avoid costly repairs or breakdowns.
