The company realized 33% of their projected return seven months ahead of schedule


A multi million euro manufacturer supplying products into the food and beverage industries from numerous locations globally.


After completing the financial analysis and defining the need to consolidate under-utilized capacity across their European production facilities, it was necessary to apply a structured and professional approach to the project.


The company’s key executives sought out an experienced senior leader to ensure that all aspects of this highly complex, enterprise level strategic initiative were orchestrated as a coordinated effort whilst preparing the receiving sites to accept the increased business.

They turned to Hart Solutions World who could meet these aggressive goals, translate the company’s vision into a actionable plan, identify the right resources to involve, and coordinate all stakeholders toward the common goal implementing sustainable change.

We unified the programme, minimizing confusion, improving communications among business units and senior leadership, building an awareness among team members on the strategic implications of the programme, and establishing and managing the schedule to ensure that strategic milestones were being met. 


All the participating manufacturing facilities delivered on time, beginning production one year after breaking ground. It normally takes up to 24 months for a facility of this size and complexity to transition.

This facility project was predicated on providing the company with organizational consolidation, an additional growth platform, lean manufacturing capability, overhead reduction, and added capacity at an expected savings in excess of 2.6 million euro per year. Since the facility was able to be operational in just 12 months, the company realized 33% of their projected return seven months ahead of schedule.

Based on this performance, Hart Solutions World remained engaged with this client helping to integrate specialized manufacturing units into their global manufacturing facilities along with newly acquired product lines.
