Our distinguished standing stems from our deployment of a highly skilled direct hire maintenance workforce, including carpenters, millwrights, mechanics, welders, pipefitters, boilermakers, equipment operators and riggers. In addition, we have developed strategic partnerships to cover any required trade including electrical and instrumentation, scaffolding, painting and insulation.

These professionals are supported by an experienced site management team proficient in the use of maintenance tools. These tools provide insights into site performance, tool-time efficiency, and workforce productivity, backed by comprehensive dashboards that offer robust analytics to identify trends and increase productivity.

Outages & Turnarounds

As part of our maintenance portfolio, we also offer comprehensive turn-key solutions for facility turnarounds, outages or shutdowns for short-term, high-intensity maintenance events requiring precise scope definition, meticulous planning, efficient execution, and real-time progress and cost tracking. We ensure satisfaction by deploying experienced supervisors, skilled craftsmen, support specialists, and project management teams.

Understanding the importance of safety during these events, we adhere to the principle that every injury and accident is preventable. Our commitment to a zero-incident vision is backed by relentless efforts to identify and eliminate workplace hazards. This commitment is reinforced by strong management support, extensive Total-Western training for all employees, and the integration of our proactive P.A.S.S. program in every task performed by our Total-Western team.
