Predictive Service, which provides reliability consulting and integrated predictive maintenance (PdM) services, has formed a new division to provide electrical repair, roll-out and project management services. The formation combines predictive maintenance technologies with a team of service providers to deliver value-added project management services directly to clients.

Maintenance Solutions will initially operate in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands through an extensive hybrid network blending staff technicians with over 10,000 service providers. A proprietary service tracking and enhanced reporting platform, ServicePoint, schedules and monitors all projects, as well as integrates into clients’ current systems for improved efficiencies.

“Through our highly scalable turn-key service approach, an experienced team and extensive network, Maintenance Solutions delivers brand protection and accountability, resulting in reduced overall cost for facilities services,” said Ed Burkhart, Maintenance Solutions president. “Our strong partnership with well-respected manufacturing and distribution channel partners, combined with the unique benefits of ServicePoint, delivers unmatched value and service to our blue-chip customer base.”

Burkhart oversees the new division, which is located in Boston. Previously, he was an executive vice president at P.M. Properties Enterprises LLC. He also previously served as chief operating officer at Enservio Inc., a Bain Capital start-up specializing in SaaS contents property valuation solutions for the insurance industry, and as president of Network Electrical Services Inc., a firm focused on large-scale electrical (planned) projects and energy management initiatives.


“The addition of Maintenance Solutions allows us to offer clients more value-added offerings internally, rather than outsourcing. It’s a seamless fit with our predictive maintenance services that provides clients with a substantial reduction in administrative complexity and increased convenience,” said Don Frankel, president of Predictive Service. “We are excited to welcome Ed to our leadership team. His extensive experience building and scaling service and technology businesses perfectly compliments our growth strategies, while enhancing our service offerings to meet our clients’ diverse needs.”
