GreenWood, Inc. Project Team Receives Leadership Award at Caterpillar

Greenville, SC, January 12, 2017 --( GreenWood, Inc., an integrated maintenance, operations and construction solutions provider, was recently recognized for their team leadership at their Caterpillar project in Athens, Georgia. The Athens Tech Foundation presented the GreenWood planning department with an Outstanding Workforce Leadership (O.W.L.) award which identifies and recognizes businesses for exemplary leadership initiatives. At this site, GreenWood provides total maintenance services including reliability, planning and scheduling, and support services for all manufacturing, operations, and production equipment.

Members of the GreenWood planning department, along with their technical workforce, have made tremendous progress leading the efforts to improve processes related to work orders, preventive maintenance, and planning. The “in progress” work order process and work orders “over 30 days” have seen marked improvement as well as preventive maintenance (PM) on time completion rates. These improvements translate into work process efficiency and equipment reliability gains that create capacity and increase manufacturing throughput.

The Athens Tech Foundation works on behalf of Athens Technical College to provide student benefits through scholarships, GED testing fees, emergency loans and related opportunities, allowing them to complete their education and immediately become part of an educated workforce. It has a direct impact on the community’s economy while transforming lives of the students in the process. GreenWood is a sponsor of the Athens Tech Foundation.
