Increase Operating Margins
– through Operational Excellence, SPO & cost reduction, Maintenance & Reliability, Procurement, and S&OP
Ability to deploy to firms of all sizes
We focus on organizations involved in converting raw materials into finished chemical compounds for business and end use customers.
Face profitability challenges
As the chemical industry grows faster than the overall economy, the effects of the deep freeze and port issues lead to increased demand to refill the supply chain. Companies are facing pricing pressures as competition picks up, and in some cases, increased transportation and raw material cost impact profits. Many are having difficulty finding labor at an affordable cost, especially for the lower-skilled roles.
With significant professional and personal experience and strong relationships throughout the industry, we help our clients’ asset-intensive businesses face these profitability challenges by enabling their People, Processes, Systems and Technology for long-term benefits. In particular, Operational Excellence to help streamline labor raw material consumption and other costs, and Supply chain to better schedule and utilize transportation resources.
When a project is completed and the consultants leave, the knowledge of what was done and how does not leave the building. Individuals within the organization are trained to apply that knowledge, ensuring on going sustainability of the changes we helped enact.
Ensure sustainability by focusing on all levels of the organization
We believe in the apprentice model: authentic learning comes from a combination of close observation of skilled business practices in action, interspersed with guided repetition until skills are transferred and required outputs routinely generated. Ultimately, we’re not here to give our clients a report of what they can do better; we are here to work with them at all levels of the organization to ensure sustainability.
The foundation of sustainable change is built on four categories of capabilities: People, Process, Systems & Technology
Management Operating Systems
Strategy, People & Organization
Health, Safety & Environment
Positive improvements can be made in any of these areas in isolation, but the most powerful results are executed through an integrated approach.
