F&M MAFCO announced the formal signing of an agreement with Enerfab to manage the company’s tool and equipment functions in two Enerfab regional facilities – Evansville, Indiana, and Kansas City, Missouri. The turnkey tooling and equipment management program is called NEXT S.T.E.P – Strategic Tool and Equipment Partnership.
According to Bill McKenna, the chief operations officer of F&M MAFCO, “This is a significant agreement for us. The Enerfab NEXT S.T.E.P program is our signature offering that leverages the full capabilities, expertise, and resources of our team to provide a comprehensive outsourced tooling and equipment management program that can significantly drive down costs and increase efficiencies for our customers. It essentially takes the hassle out of having to manage your own team and program internally.”
Enerfab CEO, Aaron Landolt, commented, “Over the past year, we have had to take a hard look at all aspects of our business in an effort to drive down costs and increase efficiencies without sacrificing the quality and safe completion of our fabrication, construction, and maintenance work. Our tooling and equipment program was one area we have managed internally for over 100 years. After several months of analysis and weighing the pros and cons, we decided to outsource this critical capability to our trusted partner F&M MAFCO. We started with our Evansville, Indiana, business unit, TMI Contractors, then expanded it to our Kansas City Region last month. We have found it to be an efficient, cost-effective, turnkey program that allows us to concentrate on what we do best. It was a big decision for us to give up internal control, but we did it and have not looked back.”
The Enerfab agreement was spearheaded by Tim Fries, F&M MAFCO’s vice president of sales and marketing, and spans over a five-year period of time. Fries commented, “It takes a special customer relationship to make this type of program work. Total trust is required. You become an integral part of your customer’s internal team. We are excited about this partnership with Enerfab and look forward to a long and rewarding relationship in the future.”
