Case Study Summary: Loreal

For more than 100 years, L’Oréal has been known as the world’s largest cosmetics company. Headquartered in Clichy, Hauts-de- Seine, France, the company also has five major manufacturing facilities in the U.S, as well as 15 distribution centers across the country.

L’Oréal was in need of a system that would not only track asset health, but also help the team maintain the lifespan of its equipment. Furthermore, the team wanted a system to house asset information, including unique equipment and products manufactured on a location-by- location basis. In recognizing that asset downtime and lack of performance tracking would hurt the plant’s progress, the L’Oréal team band together to search for a solution.

The team went through an extensive process to vet CMMS vendors. They assembled a small group that ranked providers that met their key expectations and checklist of features in a desired system. After careful consideration, the group landed upon Maintenance Connection’s computerized maintenance management software (CMMS).
