Leaders in the maintenance reliability community met to honor fellow maintenance reliability professionals for their outstanding achievements and to celebrate individual excellence at the Uptime® Magazine Best Maintenance Reliability Program Awards at the International Maintenance Conference held Dec. 5 – 8, 2011.
Ivara customer, Domtar Espanola won Best Asset Health Management Program.
I wanted to highlight one of their leaders, Kim Hunt. Kim spoke in several sessions at the IMC conference and I was so impressed with her passion for establishing a reliability culture. Kim is the Reliability Manager at Domtar’s Pulp and Paper Mill in Espanola, Ontario. She specializes in lubrication, planning, predictive tools, CMMS implementation and the development and implementation of the Ivara EXP condition based asset management program (referred at Domtar as “RDM” – Reliability Driven Maintenance). Kim believes that leadership, commitment, teamwork and persistence are key to Domtar successfully weathering the challenging market conditions.
Congratulations to the team at Domtar.
