Factory Planning

The review and adjustment of manufacturing footprints is essential, in order to achieve priorities in 2024 and beyond. Relocation is just one option: optimizing existing plants in WEU is the other. A holistic view is required…

The priorities of European manufacturers for 2024+ are clear: delivery of established performance programs and consequent benefits delivery, location checks included. Western European countries and their production infrastructure are still competitive, but there’s mounting pressure to further optimize efficiency.

We have bundled, and expanded, our capabilities so that we can provide our customers with the best possible support, all the way from initial ideation to SOP.
