Condition Monitoring & Laser Alignment team from SWB Plus joins Acoem Australasia to form new Industrial Reliability team
2 Jul 2019
Acoem Australasia is now helping shape the longevity and sustainability of industrial and mining machinery across Australia and the Asia-Pacific region with the integration of Statewide Bearings Plus’ (SWB Plus) Condition Monitoring & Laser Alignment team into its business.
As of 1 July 2019, the Condition Monitoring & Laser Alignment team of SWB Plus became part of Acoem Australasia. Based in Adelaide, South Australia, SWB Plus’ Condition Monitoring & Laser Alignment team has been responsible for the distribution of Acoem condition monitoring and laser alignment products for several years. Their highly skilled technicians work expertly with Acoem instruments to provide extensive reliability consultation, correction and advisory services.
A further expansion of smart industry solutions by Acoem for customers worldwide
In a move that further reinforces its global synergies, Acoem Australasia has brought the Condition Monitoring & Laser-Alignment team on board to diversify further into the industrial and mining sector with predictive and reliability solutions. The move brings Acoem industrial reliability and maintenance product distribution back in-house, while also supplying products manufactured by Connection Technology Center (CTC).
Building on SWB Plus’ business strengths and market leadership position, the newly formed Industrial Reliability team will be headed up by (former) Acoem Australasian Reliability Manager Stephen Read, who has come across from SWB Plus. Stephen brings many years of condition monitoring expertise to his role. He will be supported by his current staff members to ensure that the transition from SWB Plus to Acoem Australasia is seamless to its existing customers.
Maximise the reliability of machine assets
“With offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, we are looking forward to servicing industrial and mining customers under our new Acoem business name,” said Stephen.
“We are committed to adding value for our customers by supplying the highest quality condition monitoring and alignment instruments. We help companies avoid premature machine failures in critical equipment by identifying any anomalies early, rectifying them and ensuring that potential damaging situations do not occur in the first place,” he added.
“We welcome the addition of smart industry solutions to our Australian operations,” commented James Agius, Acoem Australasia Managing Director. “The SWB Plus team has garnered an exceptional reputation in the reliability industry and we are confident that it will become an integral part of Acoem’s business across Australasia,” he added.
