The smooth transition into your new facility is only part of the goal.
You also need a facility that is works properly from day one and that you can expect to continue to work as designed for many years. IFS, on your behalf works with Engineers and Commissioning agents as needed to see that each piece of electrical and mechanical equipment is tested to assure you that it is operating as specified. As a company that values Lean principles, IFS builds into the contract and project processes checks to catch issues early in the installation process. Quality by inspection is not efficient.

All test results will be furnished to you. Any issues that are found will be corrected.
