A Specialist UK Asset Management Company 

Our History

While working as the handover manager (CAPEX TO OPEX) for a new terminal in a major hub airport, Malcolm, the founder and CEO of Strategic Maintenance Ltd (SML), witnessed the challenges the airport faced when bringing a significant number of new assets into the asset management (AM) process.

 

While developing the processes and requirements for the maintenance team, the lack of understanding of AM practices became apparent and appeared to be common within many organisations. Identifying a gap in the market, Malcolm drew on his 35 years of knowledge and experience in plant operations and AM practices to develop the asset management processes and knowledge base that are still in place today.

 

In 2006, the asset management company SML was created with the sole purpose of helping organisations bring their AM processes and practices into the 21st century. SML has been delivering asset management services in a broad range of industries and environments ever since, empowering our clients to improve their operations, reduce their costs and become more profitable.

Our Goal

As one of the UK’s leading asset management companies, our goal is to help you achieve and implement successful asset management practices in partnership. That could be by achieving ISO 55000 certification or simply by bridging the compliance gap between current state and AM best practice.


We believe in delivering sustainable improvements that drive long-term success and take pride in exceeding our clients’ expectations and making their businesses better.
