International TPM Institute, Gründer und Management Team

Unsere TPEM Entwicklungen haben die Produktivitätsraten bis zu 70% gesteigert, über 400% Kapitalerträge erzeugt und uns mit loyalen Kunden wie Mercedes, Conti Tire, Michelin, Kelloggs u.v.m. bereichert.

Das Internationale TPM Institut, gegründet von Edward H. Hartmann im Jahr 1990 war das erste ihrer Art welches erfolgreich TPM in Betrieben in den USA, Europa, Südamerika und Südostasien aufgriff, überarbeitete und implementierte. Um dieses System dem westlichen Mark verfügbar zu machen, entwickelte E.H. Hartmann das „TPEM“ System und schrieb den Beststeller „Successfully Installing TPM in a Non-Japanese Plant“ (Deutscher Titel: “Effiziente Instandhaltung und Maschinenmanagement”). TPEM wird heute von allen TPM Fachberatern angewandt und steigerte die Produktivitätsraten bis zu 70%, erzeugte über 400% Kapitalerträge und hat uns mit loyalen Kunden wie Mercedes, Conti Tire, Michelin, Kelloggs u.v.m. bereichert. Die Entwicklungen haben eine bisher unübertroffene Erfolgswelle in Nordamerika, Südamerika, Südostasien und Europa nach sich gezogen.
