Tours of three nearby textile services industry production facilities including an equipment manufacturer highlight the agenda of TRSA’s annual Maintenance Management Institute (MMI), on 26-28 October in New Orleans.

These plant visits and ensuing discussion will focus on fulfilling MMI’s mission to provide maintenance and engineering personnel with ideas to optimise operational efficiencies and performance, minimising downtime and maximising equipment life.

On 26 October, MMI participants will join attendees of TRSA’s production summit and plant tours, which starts one day earlier at the same New Orleans hotel (Harrah’s), in visiting hospitality laundry Starr Textile Services and food and beverage linen specialist TLC Services. On 28 October, the MMI agenda concludes with an optional visit to Pellerin Milnor.

Tours will enable MMI participants to observe these facilities’ approaches to maintenance challenges and discuss with these plants’ management pressing issues the attendees face in their own operations. More details can be found at the TRSA website.
