The Manufacturing Company
In 2014 The Co. worked closely with a Manufacturing Company who had been operating a loss making company due to generational changes. After a comprehensive breakdown of business processes and with an in depth understanding, The Co. identified the manufacturing process as a key cog in the business and went about working through each stage.
- Administration – Typically the cost that manufacturers prefer not to have, The Co. recognized the importance of administration and allocated funds and resources to best manage this stage. From taking initial orders to dispatch to after customer care, each step was analysed and scrutinized to determine best practice.
- Capital investment – Critically analyzing the equipment required to run a manufacturing company and how this can be used to leverage other facets.
As a result The Co. was able to assist the managing director to step away from the day to day operation and instead focus on the overall operations and future direction of the business. The company has recently been sold to a profitable and successful business, which will continue to grow under the new operator.
