Global performance improvement solutions provider GP Strategies Corporation and Nexus Global have joined forces to launch a range of complementary services and software that improve plant reliability and drive productivity for European manufacturers.

The Asset Management portfolio combines Nexus Global’s innovative management software tools with GP Strategies’ engineering knowledge, maintenance and reliability training skills, and service delivery.

Providing a comprehensive solution to manufacturers’ asset management strategy, the complete toolkit enables users to train staff, validate asset performance data, plan maintenance activity, and investigate the root cause of machinery failure.

“Asset Management is about ensuring that the physical assets we use to manufacture products are fully with operators and maintenance staff having the right skills and data to maintain them. Better planning, based on superior knowledge and data, means that equipment can be used more efficiently with fewer interruptions for planned maintenance or for failures,” stated Paul Nokes, GP Strategies’ Vice President for Engineering and Technical Services, EMEA.

GP Strategies is a global engineering and technical services organization headquartered in the United States. European multi-national division Lorien Engineering Solutions, which employs 120 people in Burton on Trent, UK, and Wroclaw, Poland, is an engineering design and project management firm that specialises in capital projects in the food and drink, brewing, and life sciences sectors.

Doug Robey, Vice President of GP Strategies in the US, said, “GP has long-established expertise in the areas of engineering craft skills assessment, hands-on craft skills training, and maintenance documentation development, which we are now bringing to the UK thanks to this partnership. The Nexus Global tools focus on reliable engineering, driving the correct actions that are based upon good data. We believe that this combination provides GP with a comprehensive and powerful offering, particularly to the process and general manufacturing industry.”


US-based Nexus Global Business Solutions is a global asset performance management consulting company that provides customized, comprehensive solutions to organizations across the US, Canada, South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
