Plant equipment refers to the machinery and materials that help to enhance a manufacturing shop’s productivity by providing in-house services and utilities.
These can include elevators, security equipment, recycling services, refrigeration units, office supplies, cleaning services, and safety gear. Many of these features are necessary for keeping a manufacturing plant operational, as they make the environment more tolerable for workers and increase the likelihood of efficient production.
Being able to move quickly in a safe, comfortable and clean workplace can make a big difference in project effectiveness.
Unlike plant equipment, facility equipment and services are usually peripheral to the actual work environment. These may include fences, gates, washroom supplies, and other related materials. Numerous exterior structures, such as outdoor coverings, pumping stations, or even pools can serve as facility-related equipment.
