Allied Reliability Group recently announced the acquisition of ABB's reliability consulting business in North America, originally known as HSB RT. The reliability consulting business consists of 20 remote employees, all of whom will be fully integrated into GP Allied, which is the reliability consulting and training arm of Allied Reliability Group.
The consulting business will complement GP Allied's current reliability consulting offerings, which include expertise in the fields of lean, reliability engineering, six sigma, change management, maintenance planning and scheduling, workforce development, and maintenance craft skills training.
With the acquisition, GP Allied will add business units in the disciplines of work execution management, equipment maintenance plan development, preventive maintenance, computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) integration, and planning and scheduling.
"All of us at Allied Reliability Group are extremely excited with this opportunity to further strengthen our reliability engineering offerings in the market," said Allied Reliability Group's John Langhorne. "We believe that Allied Reliability Group now has the most complete reliability services portfolio available anywhere."
All current reliability consulting projects for both GP Allied and Allied Reliability Group are scheduled to continue as planned.
