Fabricated Metals - an example
Metals Fabricators face increasing pressure to find new efficiencies. Price sensitivity, volatile raw materials cost, shorter product lifecycles, and adoption of quality and value added services continue to erode what for many are already thin margins.
In response, many are expanding their traditional business and looking for new opportunities. Some in new and unknown markets with others focussing on business performance. Initiatives like 'Lean' have been driving many manufacturers to re-engineer business processes from the plant floor to the top floor to the extended supply chain.
We have developed a considerable expertise in the needs of Fabricators. We see those that take a holistic approach and have been open to new technology for managing their businesses are enjoying business-wide costs savings, reduction in raw material and work in process, improved throughput, better utilisation of existing resources, and improved customer satisfaction.
