Technical Services Agreement

Through its Technical Services offer, Fives proposes adapted solutions based on regular plant visits and surveys to support producers to optimize their plants' performance. Technical Services Agreements are tailor-made to each plant requirements to reach the highest availability and efficiency.

For grinding system, a minimum of two mechanical visits per year is planned to guarantee an efficient follow up and ensure a reliable operation of the plant.
