PALATINE, Ill., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 67 of Puerto Rico's
pharmaceutical manufacturing leaders gathered in San Juan recently to preview
Schneider Electric's "Electrical Asset Management" offering. The four-day
event focused on maximizing return on investment of capital equipment by
minimizing equipment lifecycle costs.
Representatives from Fluor Daniel, Eli Lilly, Pharmacia, Pfizer, Wyeth,
Merck, Bristol Myers Squibb, Abbott, Searle, and Astra Zeneca, attended
seminars, spoke with product managers, and learned of the company's first wave
of products and services designed to help manage electrical equipment return
on investment (ROI).
"The technical presentations and product demonstrations gave our Merck
team a clear understanding of what asset management is all about," said
Francisco A. Rodriguez, Manager, Merck Barceloneta. "The presentations on
communications and data storage technology for motor control centers and
PowerLogic(R) power monitoring systems were especially interesting."
According to Mark Liston, Global Sales Director, Pharmaceutical Accounts,
the company's Electrical Asset Management offering focuses on the five stages
in an equipment lifecycle: Acquisition, Deployment, Operation, Maintenance,
"The response we received in Puerto Rico was exceptional and validated our
view of Electrical Asset Management," Liston said, "that customers need more
than databasing software and leasing options on their purchases to manage the
lifetime costs of their equipment."
