The recent market growth has spurred industrial firms to revitalize their facilities and drive business outcomes. However, abundance of legacy control systems and aging technical and engineering resources are posing serious challenges to the day-to-day operations. Lack of support for instrument calibration, commissioning, and control systems management are leading to increasing cost. With more than 20years of experience in providing field services to varied industries, Columbia, IL-based MAVERICK Technologies, LLC is filling these gaps with talented field technicians and unique technology for tracking a project from initial planning through its completion. “With control systems expertise spanning all major platforms, MAVERICK excels as a full-service solution provider that aids customers to get better at operations management every day,” says Joel Boisselle, Director of Design & Field Operations of the company.
At a time when technologies are evolving, MAVERICK emerges as the perfect partner for growth with its commissioning management and project management services. MAVERICK initiates customer engagement by understanding their needs, goals, objectives and the expected time for project completion. The company has a defined methodology built into its technology solution, SureStart®, for startup and commissioning. As part of the SureStart solution, MAVERICK’s digital commissioning tool, eStartSM, reduces errors in the field and supports tracking of progress using mobile devices. As documentation can be completed in the field, progress reporting is instantaneous. Visibility into the project status helps the stakeholders to make informed decisions. Besides, MAVERICK plays a role in staff augmentation for an individual project.
MAVERICK also offers instrument calibration services and process control equipment calibration consulting as part of their field services offering.

To eliminate errors in readings, MAVERICK’s technicians calibrate the instruments before verifying I/O checks and planning the capital expenditure (CapEx) for customer commissioning projects.
In any distributed control system (DCS) migration or upgrade, MAVERICK ensures synergy by having dedicated people from the field service, design, and execution teams cater to its customers’ business needs. On any given project, the company combines the right talent and smart technology and tools to meet its customers’ diverse requirements. On the safety side, MAVERICK has a detailed safety plan and adheres to the unique needs and policies of its customers. An urge to get better at serving customers drives the company to seek their feedback, which has garnered positive results and helps demonstrate MAVERICK’s prowess in catering to the long- and short-term goals of its customers.
For instance, a major pulp and paper company partnered with MAVERICK to restart a mill that had been shut down for two years. The company developed a plan to use one machine instead of multiple supporting systems. While MAVERICK’s technicians performed the necessary calibrations, rewiring of devices and mechanical device maintenance, its human-machine interface (HMI) team worked with the existing systems and added configuration for new process control requirements. In addition to field audits post installation and management of equipment suppliers, MAVERICK provided a team of technicians that supported the customer’s maintenance department to ensure accurate execution of the preventive maintenance programs. The result was that the customer could efficiently complete the commissioning and field reprogramming of the multiple existing systems in time.
MAVERICK believes in harnessing young talent to build a rich pool of experts with hands-on experience ready to serve the needs of tomorrow’s industrial facilities. The firm focuses on providing innovative field service solutions and expanding its customer base.
