Management Policy

Howden Maintenance Partners wants to be ‘a Smart Fit’ with its customers, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders. Howden Maintenance Partners’ goal is to provide the best possible solutions in the field of maintenance & engineered services on rotating equipment to its customers in all branches of the industry at optimum cost. 

Our 3 business units: Rotating, Turbomachinery and Transformer are dedicated to specific industries and activities and are ready to meet any challenge. For each BU and for each specific situation a ‘Smart Game’ or ‘Fit for Purpose’ strategy is followed. In the case of the ‘Smart Game’, a standardised offer with options and correct pricing is used to provide a high quality service within a short lead time. Within ‘Fit for Purpose’, the best solution for the specific context and situation of the machine is searched for together with the customer, so an offer tailored to the customer is made where the Total Cost of Ownership comes first.

Our goals are summarized in our mission statement, which is as follows:           
“We fulfill the highest expectations of our employees, customers and other stakeholders by delivering reliability and engineered services, specialized in rotating equipment”.

MP’s mission is supported by our company values: Expertise, Flexibility, Customer Orientation, Innovation, Eagerness and Dynamism.

We share our knowledge and expertise with all stakeholders in order to deliver an excellent service according to the highest standards of Quality, Health, Safety and Environment. Our QHSE culture implies that we are committed to:

  • Develop a zero accident attitude
  • Reach zero harm for people’s health & safety
  • Reach zero losses for equipment and asset
  • Reach zero pollution
  • Reduce environmental impact from our activities
  • Prevent QHSE incidents or near-misses
  • Identify any improvement opportunities
  • Strive to be the best place to work

Our management system enables us:

  • To minimize risks and environmental impacts
