Promoted from Within

PEME - Sam Burrows

PEME is pleased to announce the internal promotion of Sam Burrows as the new team leader on one of our Asset Care support contracts with responsibility for driving further Continuous Improvement at his site.

Sam joined PEME in 2015 and initially worked across various sites but for the past year has been engaged as part of the Plant Maintenance team at a dairy.  Our client had identified the need for a productivity improvement initiative.

The PEME Reliability  team mobilised a Plant Maintenance solution which consisted of the introduction of a new Preventive Maintenance regime including a Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) which has resulted in improved maintenance planning and visibility of maintenance KPIs, a routine Condition Monitoring service which have allowed potential failures to be found before machine breakdown and an on-site maintenance team which has led to improved maintenance delivery.

Sam has been a member of the maintenance team who have worked well alongside our client’s engineers and operators. Results include improved Preventive Maintenance and Corrective completion rates with many breakdowns and approximately 70 hours of downtime avoided to date.

Before joining PEME, Sam completed an advanced apprenticeship in electrical installation with Babcock DynCorp conducting larger installations and refurbishment work in support of MoD contracts.  This experience has equipped him with excellent educational and vocational training qualifications.  He joined PEME to broaden his exposure to Asset Care within manufacturing Plants.

Sam reports to Tony Whyman (PEME Operations Manager) who said “I would like to congratulate Sam on his promotion. He has worked in this team since we mobilised the contract and is familiar with the assets and client procedures at this site.  He has a very good relationship with the PEME and client personnel at this location and is an excellent choice for team leader.  This is the right time for him to advance and he has a very promising career ahead of him.”
