E & JW Glendinning, a leading supplier of concrete, asphalt and aggregate products, has selected
Spidex’s Mainsaver CMMS to support improvements in the auditability of its engineering
Glendinning is a family company founded over 50 years ago with its roots in quarrying. Today, it
delivers a complete end-to-end service from multiple sites across Devon and Cornwall that also
includes manufacturing, logistics and civil engineering.
The impetus for looking at computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) was a
desire for more detailed information on Glendinning’s substantial inventory of plant assets and
the maintenance works carried out on them to further improve compliance.
Operations Manager Mark Glendinning explains: “There is an ever-increasing onus on all
manufacturing operations to be more auditable. Our main objective from procuring a CMMS is
to create a central resource in which all engineering works carried out by the teams on our fixed
assets are recorded. This will create an auditable chain of accountability for each maintenance
task we complete.”
While researching the various CMMS options available, Mark Glendinning received a
recommendation from one of the company’s maintenance technicians who had used Mainsaver
CMMS in a similar role previously. His opinion was that it was ideally suited to heavy industrial
operating environments but also straightforward and uncomplicated to use.
On that basis, Spidex was invited to conduct some general demonstrations of Mainsaver’s
capabilities. Encouraged by what they saw, Glendinning’s CMMS project team then asked to see
the system operating in a ‘live’ environment. A visit to the manufacturing facility of an existing
Spidex customer was duly arranged to show Mainsaver in action.
Mark Glendinning: “When we met and spoke with longer-term users of Spidex’s CMMS, we
were impressed with their recommendations – not only of the software itself, but of Spidex’s
overall level of customer service as a supplier.”
