Our manufacturing clients are being confronted with an uncertain global economy, worldwide overcapacity, rising energy costs, and pricing pressures continue to intensify. In addition to this slow-growth environment, companies must further scrutinize their balance sheets, defer capital expenditures, and reduce debt. The combination of these new realities with the familiar industry challenges such as volatile raw materials costs, capacity issues, and sourcing challenges have created a business environment that is having a profound effect on the global manufacturing industry. In order to survive and succeed, strategies and solutions must be implemented that address all of these issues simultaneously. Every aspect of the business must work as one cohesive unit, while consistently delivering real-world results.
The broad and diverse spectrum amongst manufacturing organizations brings together unique sets of challenges in each of our client engagements. Some of the current issues and trends that we see emerging revolve around strategic, organizational, and operational topics. Our primary emphasis is in the automotive, chemical, consumer goods, industrial products, and paper sectors. In each of these areas we see that profitability and growth will continue to be more difficult to achieve in the near term. There will also be a need for organizations to continue to operate more efficiently, with further emphasis placed on cost reduction and expense management. Innovation, leveraging knowledge, and organizational engagement will be key attributes for success now and into the future.
