We work with a variety of manufacturing businesses across multiple industry sectors.

Manufacturing Consulting

Startups

We can assist with everything from market research, feasibility and business planning to go-to-market strategy.

Established Businesses

Our consulting practice for established manufacturing businesses focuses on positioning clients for long term, sustainable growth. This usually requires a comprehensive analysis of internal (people, organizational structure, processes, systems) and external (competitors, market trends, pricing, marketing) aspects of your business.

Unlike some of our competitors, we don’t make false promises about doubling revenue within a few months, or turning things around in weeks. We practice what we preach — steady, sustainable growth achieved through hard work, great ideas, superior execution, and ethical marketing

Business problems we help solve

How do we compete in the market?

We have several large, extremely well-funded domestic and overseas competitors. They are killing us on price. If we lower our prices any further, we’ll just go out of business. How can we improve our competitive positioning, attract less price-sensitive customers, and stop the downward spiral in profit margins? 

How do we expand our marketing and sales to grow our company? 

Our competitors are all over social media, have mobile apps, and are leaving us in the dust. We don’t use digital marketing effectively and our marketing materials look tired and out of date. How do we strengthen our presence on the Internet and increase brand awareness? 

How can we scale our business without compromising our quality and values? 

In our business, economies of scale are critical. The market is huge, but we have a tiny market share. We don’t want to grow too slowly, but we also don’t want to grow so fast that we lose our identity — everything that makes us special.

How do we attract and retain the best people ?

We are having trouble attracting and retaining high quality people with good mechanical and technical skills. We  seem to be stuck between a rock and a hard place. If we  increase wages too much, we don’t make any money. If we keep wages where they are, turnover increases and we lose our best employees. What should we do?

We are experiencing growing pains, and our organizational structure is no longer working efficiently. The departments and roles we created years ago don’t seem to work well anymore. We’re not sure if we should redesign departments and roles, eliminate certain positions, change performance incentives, redesign critical processes, or just improve internal communications. Can you help us assess the situation, recommend positive changes and help us implement them?

How do we adopt more sustainable  practices?

We want to shift our supply chain, production, packaging, shipping and distribution toward more environmentally sustainable practices, without negatively impacting profits. What are our options?

If you are looking for a business consulting firm with integrity, passion, and a talent for delivering results, then you have come to the right place. You may have more options than you think. We can help you identify and evaluate opportunities so you can make an informed decision that balances risks against rewards.
